QIKI Cuisine Check: How to Pick the Perfect Japanese Restaurant in Northcote for You

Izakaya & Sushi

The most basic comparison we can make is that Japanese izakaya rooms are Japanese-style pubs. They serve drinks paired with incredible options like seared salmon cuts, prawn tempura shrimp rolls, and more. Presented like an elegant Japanese-themed dive bar, the izakaya is a huge hit with Aussies on game day. Even for big celebrations, Japanese restaurants in Northcote offer a refreshing respite from the traditional Aussie pub. Having sushi alongside a part is a wonderful joy in life, and we highly recommend the experience!

Ramen Houses

Even more, QIKI Cuisine is a huge fan of Japanese ramen restaurants in Northcote. These establishments are dining establishments sent from culinary heaven. Not only are they aesthetically beautiful in presentation, with a mix of traditional Japanese culture complemented by modern refinements, the food is absolutely incredible. Ramen broth is made from simmered animal bones mixed with ginger, kombu, dried shiitake mushrooms, and soy sauce. The local Japanese restaurants in Northcote also offer secret sauce mixed that we cannot reveal here – you have to discover them yourself.
