With a well established Japanese-Australian community in Victoria, Japanese restaurants have always found a steady clientele. Sashimi and sushi places serving the freshest of fish, skilfully prepared by expert chefs, initially became fashionable dining options in Melbourne but now Japanese restaurants can be found in even the smallest towns in Victoria. One of the biggest attractions lies in the stylishness of the recipes as well as the use of superb local fish, seafood and meats that are readily available in Victoria. Nowadays Japanese cuisine is no longer confined to formal, upscale establishments and is on offer in bright, contemporary cafes and diners too.
Sushi may have initially attracted the diners of Victoria to Japanese restaurants, but they quickly discovered menus featuring intriguing dishes influenced by Western traditions. Grilled meat teppanyaki and delicate fried vegetable and seafood tempura are all popular Japanese menu items. For quick lunches or late suppers, fashionable ramen noodle places have also attracted a loyal following with their rich miso broths and fresh flavours.
