Yokohama Teppanyaki, Glen Waverley

Work wanted to have a dinner to catch up and they picked Yokohama Teppanyaki in Glen Waverley. Parking was quite difficult and the venue was located in Century City Walk. The staff were very polite and the venue gets super busy so luckily we remembered to make a booking. We sat at the table and decided to do the Moriawase Set for $59.50 a head.

Shinbashi Yakiniku, Carlton

The stooges plus Ms Pear decided it was was time to check out the new Japanese BBQ Shinbashi located in the heart of Lygon Street. We made a booking online, turned up and BAM got to our table and looked over the menu. We were there for lunch on a Sunday and there was only one floor staff looking after all the tables. Poor thing was running around like a headless chook BUT he was so friendly, polite and very attentive.

Suishaya Inn, Ringwood

It was date night and Mr D was in the mood for some Japanese and I was in charge of finding a place. After searching through zomato, I saw that a lot of people reviewed Suishaya Inn with a high rating. So in we went at 8:15PM on a Saturday night and I knew I had picked the wrong place. The decor was quite tacky and the staff were not Japanese (which was fine) but the thing that yelled out NO to me was the disposable chopsticks placed on the table. For a place where it’s estimated to spend approx $80 per couple, there should be actual chopsticks and not those given at takeaway stores.

Your Thai Rice and Noodle Bar, Melbourne

I have been here a couple of times and decided to come here for cheap eats and quick service.  My usual dish is the green curry (LOVE!!!!) but I thought I’ll be different and try something else on the menu, Tom Yum Noodle Soup with chicken.  Tom Yum soup doesn’t traditionally come with noodles of any sort but this dish came with vermicelli noodles.  The soup base was very average and I think the noodles were overkill.  I also got the durian smoothie (yes, some people find it stinky but I think it’s the best smell in the world!) and I quite enjoyed it.
