Tachinomi YP

A quaint, Japanese-style standing bar in Crows Nest.

Those who are familiar with Japanese tachinomi (standing bars) will be thrilled to know that Crows Nest's Tachinomi YP is the real deal. These tiny bars, loaded with toys and trinkets are commonplace in many Japanese cities and famed for offering simple, delicious food within a small space that transforms into a raucous party as the night goes on.

By day YP keeps things focussed and simple, serving hearty bowls of tonkotsu ramen — and that's it. After dark though, expect a lengthy chat with the bartender over a Japanese draught beer with Asahi, Asahi Black and Orion lager all available.

As a pint-sized place, it gets packed pretty quickly, so get in early to secure a seat. Otherwise, Japanese curry and bento boxes are available for takeaway and you can get tinnies to-go, too.
