If you’re at all interested in Japanese food beyond sushi, then Welcome to Japan’s Kitchen. With Japanese cuisine and dishes now hitting the mainstream there’s a lot of deliciousness to discover. We ran shops here in Melbourne for 10 years and collected, created and hacked a lot of Japanese Recipes. Our aim is to share our recipes and experiences so we can all eat and feel better. Many customers over the years who travelled to Japan would always perch up on the bar and want to talk about Japanese Food, and many questions were similar: What dishes are best when we’re cooking for 2 of us? Which Japanese Dishes work best for 6 of us on a Saturday night? What about quick Japanese snacks? Are there any 3 ingredient Japanese recipes? What is Japanese Comfort Food? What Japanese Camping Dishes are there? Some even went deeper during their visit trying some of the most beautiful Japanese Healing Dishes that are said to cure a wide range of specific ailments. In this website we’ll attempt to chronicle and publish everything we know and continue to learn about Japanese Cuisine. We hope you enjoy.
