Japanese food is delicate, small-portioned, and beautiful and at the same time uses as little spice as possible. It’s just like water; it’s pure, clear, makes you feel comfortable, as if you are engulfed in a warm embrace. Japanese food is based on minimalist principles with each dish made with few high quality base ingredients, dislike for waste, moderate use of spices and focus on bringing out the umami flavor.
Japanese food is still pretty much a niche item in Australia. Most of the Aussies are exposed to Japanese food only in the form of sushi, usually at sushi stands in shopping malls or a sushi train places where various sushi dishes rotate around a sort of model train track and you pick up the ones that interest you. Proper Japanese style restaurants do exist in capital cities and in a few regional towns but despite being a small segment, they have a comprehensive menu. There aren’t that many Japanese restaurants in Melbourne as there are only a few Japanese living in Australia.
Nevertheless, Japanese food served in Australia cannot be undermined in any way as the country has some of the finest restaurants serving authentic food. It is not only sushi, the famous Japanese dish that is served here but the entire cuisine is served at the finest Japanese restaurants in Australia.
