Munchable Sushi and More at Tsubu

Tsubu bar is a fantastic little place well known to Melbourne Uni students, and one that is well worth a try whether your a UOM student or just keen on good Japanese food.

Starting off, the sushi is well done here. It tastes fresh and is flavoursome. For those eating in-house, it is also plated up well.

A tuna roll and a salmon roll from Tsubu


Dependent on what time of day you are visiting, you may feel it a good idea to complement your California roll with (alongside some ginger and soy), a drink or two. With this the bar is sufficiently well equipped to cater to many tastes with a broad array of beer, wine, and sake on offer.

In particular, alongside a number of beers on tap, Koshihikari Echigo, Kirin Ichiban Shibori, and Ginga Kogen Silver (alongside Asahi) all feature on the drinks list. These beers are a relatively rare thing to come across in Melbourne, so for those keen to try some hard to find Japanese beers, Tsubu would make a good stop for this reason alone.

A selection from the menu at Tsubu


Alongside sushi, the diversity of the menu compliments well the drinks list. If keen to snack on some Edamane, Gyoza or Miso soup this bar has you covered. Yet, also offered is more expansive dishes such as Japanese curry, grilled pork belly and more.

Further, these drinks and dishes are all offered in solid surrounds. The interior of Tsubu has a warm and rich atmosphere, and the outside courtyard seating (when weather appropriate) being a great place to wind down outdoors in the fresh air and sun.

'...the interior of Tsubu has a warm and rich atmosphere'


Lastly, the one and only potential downside of Tsubu should be addressed off the bat : to those unfamiliar with the Parkville campus it can be hard to find (especially because some online street maps show it as listed on Grattan St as opposed to within the campus proper).

With this, a shortcut can be offered: the best way to get to Tsubu is to enter via Grattan st - in fact just opposite the Prince Albert Hotel - turn right at the former teachers college, then left up the laneway, then left again as the author's map to follow shows.

Tsubu Bar, a great venue for Japanese food, drinks and a quality atmosphere to boot.
