As we mentioned, the ingredients on offer at Shou Sumiyaki are of serious importance. Known among Melbourne’s food crowd as the place to head for the extensive selection of Japanese and local cuts of Wagyu, which come highly marbled and packed with flavour – it literally melts in your mouth. Melbourne CBD’s Shou Sumiyaki also goes to great lengths to ensure the flavours of these high-end cuts are not marred by over seasoning, and instead you’ll find a meat marinated with a hint of sea salt combined with a set of sauces ranging from yakiniku barbecue, mustard and miso, spicy garlic miso and sea salt and lemon.
So, what to order at Melbourne’s Shou Sumiyaki? Seafood lovers should keep an eye out for the kaffiti prawns, fresh jumbo oysters served with roe and lemon and the decadent lobster sashimi platter brimming with some of the freshest cuts of seafood going. Meanwhile, meat lovers shouldn’t miss the premium Japanese kobe wagyu infused with black truffle sauce or oyster blade served with a homemade wasabi sesame sauce. No matter what you decide on, Shou Sumiyaki in Melbourne’s CBD will leave you feeling all kinds of satisfied so reserve a table and head to Little Bourke Street for a treat you won’t be forgetting.
