Wabi Sabi Garden – Cute Japanese

Wabi Sabi Garden is a cute little Japanese restaurant located at 17 Wellington Street St Kilda, around the corner from the Astor Theatre. It’s a fun little spot, and worth the extra walk.

I love the lantern tree hanging over punters in the main dining area, although the bird staring at me with its cold, glass eyes was a little disconcerting. There’s also a “reflecting” pool in the rear courtyard, basically a flat area with a projector above screening anything from tv shows to a calming pond.

In case you haven’t tried it yet, order the edamame and a beer to start with. It’s a salty “superfood”, essentially salted soya beans. I choose to interpret the superfood status as it’s healthy for you despite the salty goodness and anyone who says otherwise is lying.

Like with most good restaurants it’s fun to share, so I do recommend bringing a group. My favourite dish to share is the Chicken Karaage, which I affectionately call JFC. Yes it does resemble KFC, but the japanese herbs and spices definitely make it unique.

Pop in with a small group, soak up the atmosphere and don’t hesitate about ordering something new and different, this place has it all. Their website is here.
