MELBOURNE | Maedaya Richmond is a bustling Japanese izakaya which can be found on Bridge Road and has built up quite the reputation over the years. We’re always a little cautious of Japanese restaurants as they tend to fall short of expectations. This can be blamed on visiting Japan where every place you go to is great irrespective of  whether it is Michelin star restaurant or a dingy hole in wall. Fortunately, Maedaya does a good job at trying to introduce traditional Japanese dishes to a western palette. The first thing you will notice when you walk into this small venue is the incredible yakitori grill and large selection of sake on the wall. The smell of charcoal and charred skewers floats through the venue which is heavenly.

As you sit there ordering your dishes off an iPad the smell of the yakitori makes your mouth water in anticipation. Once the skewers arrive in front of you and you take your first bite the meat is slightly smoky, tender and absolutely delicious. The yakitori is a must and if you want to pair this with sake, sake master and owner Toshi Maeda is able to find a sake that will suit your palate. Another stand out dish is the okonomiyaki which is a variety of Japanese pancake which is typically made with seafood, cabbage and topped with bulldog sauce and benito flakes. This okonomiyaki at Maedaya is close to what we had in Japan, it is tasty and texturally great – the only thing that is missing are bonito flakes. Our final recommendation is the tuna sushi which is great – the rice is light and fluffy and the seafood is sweet and fresh. Overall, Maedaya is a great casual dining experience if you want to experience an authentic izakaya in Richmond.
