Tatsu Yakitori Bar, the city’s newest food-on-a-stick haven, made its home in the Chinatown mall. It’s from the folks behind Izakana-Ya Okuman, which immediately boosts its cred. In addition to yakitori, which are available in two-skewer servings of your choice as well as a five-skewer set, you’ll also find salads, sashimi, bao, ramen, gyoza, the usual small bits and pieces (miso, edamame, tako wasabi), and deep-fried dishes such as spicy chicken karaage, soft shell crab, chicken wings and calamari rings. Cosy up in an open booth-like table under a Japanese-style mural and wash it all down with Aussie and Japanese beers, plum wine, shochu, sake, whisky and a selection of colourful house-special cocktails. And the best part? They’re open for lunch and dinner — keeping things cooking until midnight for a late night fix, too — every day of the week.
