Nobuyuki Matsuhisa’s first love is for fish and seafood, and this clearly shows in Nobu Melbourne’s world-class menu. Head Chef Sean Tan is tasked with bringing Chef Matsuhisa’s dishes to life. Part of Crown Melbourne, Nobu Melbourne is an elegant restaurant with sensational views of the Yarra River. Watching the sushi chefs at work is inspiring, and it’s hard not to sample the fruits of their labour.
This is modern Japanese fare at its most creative, as it borrows ideas and flavours from other cuisines. Hiramasa yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño delicately balances acidic and spicy flavours, while allowing the quality fish to shine. This dish is a beautiful way to start your meal. Nobu-style wagyu tacos are presented on a bed of rock salt. The crisp shells enclose well-cooked wagyu beef, making the tacos a taste sensation.
PSST! For lunch, you can’t go past the bento boxes. Each one is filled with a variety of the restaurant’s signature dishes.
