Ishiya Stone Grill, CBD MELB

Having walked along Little Bourke Street on numerous occasions, I very rarely enter a restaurant located along the Chinatown end of the street as I find a lot of the restaurants are either overpriced or lacked quality.

One of the many man date locations of WL and a first for me. There is a lot to choose from the menu but I think for a restaurant to proudly associate itself with a stone grill, surely it would be worthwhile to sample on one for dinner.

Mashed potato - almost a compulsory and complimentary entree in most Japanese restaurants.

From memory, this was a scallop salad, a light option on the palate.

Soft shell crab salad - am a big fan of soft shell crabs and found this to be decent. Would have liked a bit more dressing/ ingredients added into the salad though.

Baked sea scallops with creamy miso mushroom sauce - an indulgent item that both of us had easily lapped off without a second thought.

There are so many stone grill options to choose from be it purely carnivorous or a seafood/ meat mix platter. We have selected a few different cuts of meat and had fun cooking them on our hot stone grill plate. Timing wise, it was difficult to manage as each piece of meat required a different cooking time. Eventually, we got the hang of it.

Comes served with a few types of dipping sauce to which, we experimented with. Favourite cuts of meat for me would be the scotch fillet and wagyu pieces, hands down.

Fried rice is served to complete the set meal and it was actually quite yummy. In short, it would not be a meal that I could have on a weekly basis but one that I would consider for future events.
