    ” Tokyo Tina is the smaller, edgier Japanese-inspired sister venue to Melbourne’s Saigon Sally & Hanoi Hannah “

    Essentials

    Located just opposite Windsor Station in Melbourne, Tokyo Tina (click here) offers a smaller yet playful eatery to entice your Asian fusion delights.

    Formerly a bong shop, Tokyo Tina is the edgy Japanese inspired sister to Melbourne’s Saigon Sally & Hanoi Hannah. Sitting amongst the hustle & bustle, the venue is filled with Astro boy pin up posters, Japanese pop art, crumbly walls and slatted timber transcending you into a fluorescent alleyway in downtown Toyko.

    Cucumber & Yuzu Sour

    The menu is predominantly Japanese but also dabbles slightly in Korean & Peruvian cuisines. All dishes can be accompanied with a great selection of cocktails, Japanese whiskey, sake or beer. Offering a vast variety on the menu, you can find delicious morsels of kingfish cones and a three types of Bao catering for those who want a light lunch or for the hungrier folk a hearty ramen or poke (pronounced po-kay).

    What we ate:

    KINGFISH CONE – Wasabi, Apple & Charcoal Cone
    KARAAGE CHICKEN RIBS – Hot Gochujang Sauce & Lemon (gf)
    PORK BELLY – Pickled Daikon, Teriyaki Sauce, Kewpie (2pc) (gf*)

    Kingfish Cone

    The stand out dishes were the Karaage Chicken Ribs and the Duck breast. The Karaage Chicken batter was extremely light and crunchy while the Duck was cooked perfectly.

    Overall

    Our dining experience at Tokyo Tina, was fun, tasty and exuberant. The staff were really helpful with their tips on what they thought the best dishes were and matching drinks. I Highly recommend Tokyo Tina for an Asian fusion meal in Melbourne.
