For the vibrant fresh flavours of Japanese cuisine, discerning Cairns diners head to Wawawa Izakaya on Lake Street. From the colourful wall murals of a Japanese woman and Mount Fuji to bright neon signage, this restaurant sets a trendy vibe for delving into sushi, sashimi and bento delights, while chilling out with a Sapporo beer in hand. Kickstart your culinary adventure with Hokkaido scallops, blazed and served with OMG secret sauce, before devouring a plate of tender free-range pork belly in soy, garlic and ginger broth, or wok-tossed tender Wagyu beef and vegetables in chilli, garlic and oyster sauce. Those with heartier tastes may opt for meals like a grilled teriyaki chicken bento box, with karaage, gyoza, rice and Jappyslaw, enjoyed with a glass of premium sake or plum wine.
