I've never been a massive fan of Japanese food, but I'm glad to say that I am now after dining at Mizu Japanese restaurant in Prahran. Mizu, the Japanese word for water, is just just a stones throw away from Prahran train station and is perfect for a light lunch or a fully fledged feast.
The staff are welcoming, greeting you with a warm nature. The venue is small, seating only about 20 patrons, but this does not hinder your dinning experience. The decor has a modern edge, which helps to make the space appear larger than it actually is.
The menu has an extensive range of meat and vegetarian dishes including soups, sushi, tempura, noodles and seafood. The complementary appetizer of ginger and bean-shoots was a nice touch, and a refreshing way to begin the meal. As I was dining with a vegetarian friend, we selected a range of delicious vegie dishes. We were astounded at the fantastic flavor that the chef, Zhizhong Chen, injected into the dishes we selected. Vegetarian dishes can often be bland and boring, but my friend and I were pleasantly surprised. I would definitely recommended the tempura vegetables and the roasted eggplant squares covered in a delectable dipping sauce. And for you meat lovers? Don't worry, the menu features a wide range of tempting traditional dishes.
