The Prahran Market is renown for providing Melbourne’s southern suburbs with a variety of different produce stores and eateries, and has recently welcomed casual Japanese dining restaurant, Wasshoi Yakitori Bar with open arms.

With summer approaching, Wasshoi Yakitori is the new kid that everyone wants to get to know – because who can resist the charcoal grilled scents of Japanese street food? Whether it’s beef cooked over hot charcoals, slow cooked pork belly or crispy tofu, Wasshoi Yakitori is serving up dishes that you simply can’t resist.

The 29-seat restaurant sits comfortably in the undercover area of the market. While yakitori bars traditionally serve only chicken, this new restaurant pushes boundaries by serving chicken, pork, beef and tofu. Head Chef, Ikuei Arakane, who has previously owned restaurants in Australia and Tasmania, says his new restaurant is all about celebrating the theatre of cooking and uniting chefs with diners.

The casual food offering perfectly complements the open kitchen aesthetic of the bar, with stools and bench tops facing the kitchen. The menu includes a variety of dishes such as Japanese style beef tsukune burgers, twice cooked pork belly or chicken filled rolls. You can also order traditional don bowls, filled with home made kimchi, spring onion, sesame, kochi yuzi pepper mayonnaise, fruit soy sauce layered, rice and your choice of slow cooked and charcoal grilled pork or chicken. If a lighter option is your preference, try the clear chicken soup with tofu, flavoured with ginger and sesame.

There is also a rotating drinks menu that includes a range of juices, ciders and beers as well as on tap options too. This little eatery has been designed to allow shoppers to drop in for a quick bite, or catch up with friends inside the thriving and diverse Prahran Market.
