#1 – Kazuki’s

Introduction: There’s a saying in Japan, ‘Ichi-go ichi-e,’ which means, every moment is one-of-a-kind and something to be treasured.

This is the philosophy of neighbourhood restaurant Kazuki’s, located in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton.

After first establishing Kazuki’s in Daylesford in 2011, Chef Kazuki Tsuya and his partner Saori have fulfilled a long-held dream—relocating their acclaimed regional dining destination to the city.

Bringing the sensibility of his native Japan to a menu that sings with the best Australian produce, Chef Kazuki strives for balance and simplicity.

A slow restaurant on a fast street, Kazuki’s is a place where flavours, service and interiors are harmonious — where new traditions are forged, and where delightful and restorative food encounters become nutrition for the soul.

#10 – Japanese Teppanyaki Inn

Introduction: The Japanese Teppanyaki Inn (or simply The Teppanyaki, as many know it) was established in 1975 in Collins Street in Melbourne’s CBD and was the first Teppanyaki style restaurant in Australia.

Teppanyaki Inn continues to attract many regular customers both local and from Australia and overseas. “Teppanyaki” is a style of cooking in which the chef prepares prime cuts of beef, chicken and seafood together with fresh seasonable vegetables in front of the customer and cooks by grilling on a large steel hotplate called a “Teppan”. In Japan “yaki” refers to ingredients that have been grilled, hence “Teppanyaki”.

The Restaurant concentrates on an authentic, restrained style of Teppanyaki as practised in Japan and does not indulge in throwing eggs, prawns, rice bowls – or anything else – at the customers! Rather the aim is to cook the best possible ingredients in a skilled and respectful manner. Just watching the chef’s deft hands will increase your appetite.

In addition to the Teppanyaki tables there is a comfortable lounge for drinks before and after the meal.

Menu Items:

  • Moreton Bay Bugs
  • Teppanyaki Chicken
  • Oysters
  • Japanese Sweet

Location: 182 Collins St, Melbourne 3000, Victoria.
