Izakaya Jiro Overview

For sake and Japanese bites dished out in cool urban style, take to Izakaya Jiro on Glenferrie Road. Said to be popular amongst Hawthorn locals, Izakaya Jiro personifies eclectic Tokyo chic where giant cut-outs of 18th century woodblock prints stick to exposed brick, threaded sake cups, swing above the bar and a dim glow pleasantly permeates. Designed for sharing, Izakaya Jiro’s menu is made up of traditional plates of fresh sushi and sashimi, as well as grilled and deep fried dishes. Pair a glass of Japanese beer with a spread of plates to share – maybe deep fried soft shell crab with sweet chilli sauce, or fresh raw baby octopus marinated in wasabi; before working your way up to main dishes like grilled premium Wagyu beef rib meat, with grated white radish and refreshing ponzu sauce.
