Japanese cuisine is one of my favourites and a favourite of many people. I have never come across anyone who dislikes Japanese cuisine! As I have always been on a hunt and wanting to try different Japanese restaurants in Perth, I was recommended Washokudo by fellow Instagrammer @perth_gram
Washokudo is located in the heart of North Perth tucked away in a little shop just off Walcott Street. It is a Japanese Style Charcoal-Grilled Yakitori Japanese restaurant where yakitori is their specialty.
On a Friday night, Jess and I head to Washokudo to catch up over a lovely Japanese meal. We started off with the Grilled Saba Mackerel which was grilled to perfection, fresh and tasty. Squeezing lemon juice on top of the mackerel added a hint of acidity and freshness to the mackerel.
Next up, we had the Chicken Meatball with Ontama from their Yakitori menu. I loved how tender and packed full of flavour the chicken meatball was which complemented so well with the silky Ontama. If you don’t know what Ontama is, Ontama is short for “Onsen Tamago” also known as “hot spring egg”.
From the Sashimi and Sushi menu, we had the Scallops and Octopus Sumiso Carpaccio which was one of my favourites of the night. The scallops and octopus were so fresh and there were lots of zesty and tangy flavours which balances the dish well. Each mouthful was a burst full of flavour.
We also shared a Una Ju (grilled eel on rice) and ordered it as a Teishoku set. The Teishoku set comprised of steamed rice, miso soup, mini agedashi tofu, Japanese pickles and egg omelette. The Una Ju I had here is probably one of the best I’ve had in Perth so far. It’s grilled to perfection, fresh and so tasty which reminded me of the Una Ju I had in Japan.
