Sake on eagle St pier just got yebisu back, along with a very Germanic suntory pilsner. Both quite good, and the food is alright too.

I did miss yebisu when it went on hiatus, but it appears to be back.

Halifax, have you been to Taro's Ramen Cafe on the corner of Adelaide and Creek Streets in the city?

They have (or at least, recently had) Yebisu beer on their menu, as well as a good selection of other Japanese beers that aren't often seen outside Japan. The ramen is fantastic, too, and Taro has quite a few other good things on the menu. Well worth a visit, either for lunch or dinner. The location isn't too prepossessing, but the food more than makes up for it. I try to go there for lunch every few weeks.

Also, Wagaya (a Japanese izakaya upstairs from the Chinatown Mall) has Yebisu beer.

 

 

This year Ive been working on the corner of Adelaide and Creek until June and dont recall a Taro's Ramen Cafe. Could you be referring to Oshi?

 

Ive also worked in the Boeing building on the corner of Adelaide and Creek and do recall a noodle shop there. Not sure if that is the one you are referring to.

I'd dress down. Lure her into a false sense of security, and then BAM you bring her home and show her those slippers.

Definitely seen them at MJ Bale; probably also carried by most menswear department stores. They seem to be fairly prevalent.

Sorry, my mistake - I meant the corner of Adelaide and Wharf, at the bottom of the Boeing building.

It's called a "ribbon belt" and they're very commonly sold by the more "trad" clothiers in the US such as J.Press (which has a wide selection here) and Brooks Brothers. Ralph Lauren also sell them. In the past, Herringbone has sold them in Australia (as have Ralph Lauren stores), but they haven't been cheap, so I think that your best bet may well be eBay or elsewhere on the internet.

I picked up one for $10 from country road a while ago.

Cheers mate, that's what I needed - wasn't sure what to search for.

 

Thanks for the tip as well Oli, can't spy one on their website however. Seasonal change I guess.

I found that the eco store powder would not dissolve effectively in the cold water, and Canberra cold tap water is fridge like cold, so that's when I switched to the liquid. The wife still uses the Earth Choice delicate for wool and linens which hand washes.

Great. I'll let you know how it goes.

No I haven't. I don't get to the city much but I've been keen to find new Japanese restaurants. My original source of Yebisu informed me that the exporter they used decided the margin/volume was too low; I noticed some of the restaurants (such as Sono) stopped serving it at around the same time. I assumed that everyone used this supplier. One of my colleagues visits JAXA regularly so I use him as a mule.

I'm not sure about bottle shops, but you can drink it here: Yebisu Izakaya

This works, on white and coloured shirts. I use it on occasions to smarten up an old shirt, or rescue an op shop find. Substitute Napisan for Oxy-clean and you're good to go.
