Namoo Izakaya, Melbourne CBD

MELBOURNE | Namoo Izakaya is a Japanese Izakaya from the team behind Japanese cafe, Namoo Cafe. By day, there’s a selection of sushi, salads, and donburi. At night, the venue switches into Izakaya mode, with a raw seafood menu, grilled meat, soups, and other Japanese dishes. I recently visited to grab some photos for What’s On Melbourne.

The space is open and airy, with wood furnishings and warm lighting. The main dining space opens up to the street when the weather is good, and there’s cosy booths towards the rear.

The signature item on the raw section of the menu is the “Namoo Platter”. It’s a spread of 24 pieces of premium sashimi, scampi, oyster, nigiri, taco wasabi, and octopus. A great option to share with friends. For grilled skewers, it’s things like chicken thigh, chicken heart, pork belly, beef, salmon, prawn and mushroom.

Favourites like shabu shabu, karaage, and ebi fry are on the menu, along with something you don’t see often in Melbourne, motsunabe. The latter is a stew from Fukuoka, made using beef and pork tripe, and other offal. It’s a great option during the winter months.

To drink, it’s Japanese whiskey, beer, and sake. There’s classic and house cocktails, and a selection of non-alcoholic Japanese sodas and drinks.
