From the fully licensed to thrill Pasta Wafu (meaning, ‘pasta, Japanese style’) expect wild Japanese twists on an Italian pasta theme.
Ume and Banksii have joined forces to bring a deliciously creative fast food concept to life, in the form of well delivered Japanese pasta. The licensed Pasta Wafu concept serves up Japanese twists on the Italian pasta theme.
The brains behind the alchemy are husband and wife duo Hamish Ingham and sommelier Rebecca Lines of Banksii Vermouth Bar and Bistro, and Kerby Craig of Ume Burger and Ume Bar. Together they’re bringing a deliciously creative fast food concept to life, alongside a great drinks selection, handpicked by Lines herself.
Dishes like miso bolognaise, uni (sea urchin) cream pasta and mentaiko (chilli-marinated roe) tagliatelle grace the limited, but well-conceived menu, where most ingredients have been made in-house.
Expect to reach new levels of umami with menu additions like fresh truffle and Tasmanian wasabi, to further pimp your pasta.
