Miyako Japanese Cuisine & Teppanyaki, Southbank MELB

One of my last few meals in Melbourne before I go overseas, Miyako fitted the bill for a quaint, reasonably priced and delicious stop before we adjourn onto other places to indulge at. Service here is efficient and staff are very friendly so don't be afraid to chat with them if there are questions spinning in your mind.

We ordered the set meals as it worked out to be more economical and we could sample a wider array of dishes.

First up was the cold Japanese salad dish to kick start our palate. Thoroughly refreshing and was a good start to begin our meal.

As a side dish, we ordered a plate of oysters. Each oyster was covered in a different type of dressing be it with ponzu, red wine vinegar with shallot or worcestershire sauce with tomato.

To begin our teppanyaki menu, we commenced with a freshly cooked plate of beansprouts, shredded cabbage and carrots.

Afterwards, we were served with equal portions of lightly seared scallops, prawns and fish. Without a doubt, the seafood was immaculately fresh and required little additional ingredients to bring out their true flavours.

Up next on the menu was a medium rare steak that had been evenly cubed. As the meat was not overcooked, the steak still retained a good amount of its juices and was extremely succulent to taste.

To end our meal, we were served with Japanese pancake that is filled with red bean paste, served with a side of whipped cream and fruit. It was a little dry but we still managed to clean our plates!:)

Oh, and not to mention that we had a lobster tail prior to dessert. Lobster was cooked with a good serving of butter and fried garlic which enhanced it's aroma. The lobster flesh was silky smooth, sweet and easily pulled apart from the shell.
