G’ day, all !
As I mentioned before, since last April 17 I have been running Japanese izakaya style sake bar in Richmond called “Sake & Grill MAEDAYA”. From the restaurant name, you can easily imagine that we specialize in Japanese sake & charcoal grills. We stock over 60 types of premium Nihonshu, Shochu, Umeshu & Japanese local beer directly imported from Japan. (Actually, you can find most of sake at MAEDAYA in SakeJapan.com.au, too.)
There are two floors in MAEDAYA. At ground floor, our main featuring is SAKE and YAKITORI charcoal grill. Our ground floor menu consisted of over 70 different authentic Japanese tapas dishes such as Edamame, Gyoza, Karaage, Agedashi Tofu & Wagyu Steak including over 25 vegetarian dishes. It will be a little fun thing for you to stop at MAEDAYA on a way home to have a few skewers & a couple sake glasses with your colleague or friends.
At upstairs, we feature YAKINIKU which is Japanese traditional charcoal grill BBQ on your table. Different from Teppanyaki, you can easily grill thin sliced meats by yourself along with seafood & vegetables. It will be a lot of fun for bigger group or family to share a table and a couple grillers together.
So basically, I will be behind the bar most of time and I am happy to talk to you anytime. If you have any questions about sake, I am there to give you an answer so please feel free to talk to me. Also, I will suggest some matching sake and food upon to your request.
I hope you would come along to MAEDAYA one day and experience a real Japanese izakaya feeling.
