OK, so Tuesday was Spice a la Carte, Wednesday was Hanahana (it's been a gourmet week). Hanahana is a Japanese restaurant at the end of Stowell Street in Newcastle (only fitting for the World Cup really, that we went to a Japanese place). The food was great - it's cooked in front of you on huge metal slabs, so you get the whole spectacle of cleavers being thrown around, eggs being tossed into chef's hats, flying salt and pepper grinders, and alcohol being flamed everywhere. The chefs might get fed up with doing all the showmanship stuff, but to us it was fun. And the food isn't bad too - whatever seasoning it was that they used on the prawns and salmon, it was fabulous (even though I did smell of garlic for about two days afterwards). Definitely recommended.
