Diners are transported to the bustling streets of Tokyo at Newtown restaurant Kaiza Izakaya on Enmore Road. The brainchild of Chef Jason Nguyen, this stylish Japanese fusion restaurant has a moody vibe of black and red walls adorned with artwork, cranes, fans and lanterns; pull up a seat at the bar, or on balmy days take to the enclosed courtyard out back. From watching his Dad cook Vietnamese dishes combined with his Japanese culinary education, Jason serves up fare with flair cooked on a smoking hot charcoal grill, or wok; think starters like Paradise prawns with soy sate, rice powder, peanut, coriander and shiso. For a memorable main, opt for perfectly cooked Wagyu rump cap with teriyaki, mint chimichurri and a side of grilled broccolini, black garlic, roasted almond and ito togarashi.
