Looking for Asian and Japanese food in Melbourne city centre? Look no further than Tokyo Maki, on the corner of Flinders Street and Gem Place. Brothy Asian soups aplenty, big woks of stir-fried veggies and meats, and a pleasant environment in which to indulge – all of these make Tokyo Maki a great place to dine, throughout the day during the week, from noon until late on Saturday, and from 4pm until 9pm on Sunday.
Bent on a bento box for lunch today? Head to Tokyo Maki’s Flinders Street premises in Melbourne’s city centre for plenty of bento box options. The mixed bento is always popular, with a range of Asian and Japanese delicacies divided between little separate areas built into these wonderful boxes. Chilli karaage, teriyaki, sukiyaki and tonkatsu bentos offer more specific Japanese-style dishes for the discerning diner in need of an express Asian fix.
Melbourne has plenty of options for Asian and Japanese cuisine, but it’s a rare thing to find Osaka’s favourite street food – okonomiyaki – in the city centre. Tokyo Maki’s seafood okonomiyaki piles on the fresh maritime delights in a layered pancake doused with sauces, salads, and pickle for a traditional street snack. Politely slurp your way through a bowl of ramen, noodles swimming in a delicate broth. Naturally, Tokyo Maki do a good line of fresh sushi and sashimi, and the fried gyoza – especially the prawn variety – are a big hit.
Stopped in for lunch and had the Prawn Udon. Great stop for lunch on flinders street. Food was delicious and hot! Highly recommended.
