Sitting by the water and devouring Japanese tapas that has been cleverly created by experienced Head Chef Yasuhiro Fukuhara is an amazing experience. Ichi Ni has been serving traditional and modern Japanese food for several years in the most sublime location in Melbourne. Nab a cosy table or perch at the teriyaki bar and watch the culinary masters in action.
The lengthy menu covers all the bases, so you are sure to find something to tickle your fancy here. Start with tuna tataki, which features beautiful slices of lightly seared tuna on a bed of shredded daikon. A soy, yuzu and shallot dressing gives the dish a little kick. Ebi mayo is a must for prawn lovers. Coated in a thin batter and then deep-fried until crunchy, the prawns are doused in a deliciously spicy Japanese mayo that is not overpowering.
PSST! On a summer night, make sure you book a table outside and watch the stunning St Kilda sunset.
