Quick Lunch: K-Shock Japanese Takeaway

in Japanese, Melbourne, Quick Lunch

Shop 8, 530 Little Collins Street, Melbourne VIC

Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, I used to eat a hot meal for lunch almost every day. Needless to say, my pants got tighter and I started to expand out sideways… so no more hot lunches for me! Occasionally though, I succumb to temptation and with all this cold weather, it is getting harder to resist!

K-Shock Japanese Takeaway was one place I used to frequent. They are a small takeaway shop selling reasonably priced Japanese dishes served with rice – and it is actually run by Japanese! On this recent visit, I noticed they have branched out into Tokyo burgers so it looks like another visit soon is in order! πŸ™‚

There are a number of dishes I like but this time I went with the Tatsuta bento. The bento has deep fried chicken thigh pieces served with rice, along with beanshoots, shredded carrots, Chinese vegetables, Japanese pickles and a piece of tofu. The chicken was crispy, tender and tasty, though it could have done with some sauce. I never eat the beanshoots or pickles as I don’t like them, but the Chinese vegetables and tofu are nice.

Tatsuta Bento – deep fried chicken marinated in ginger, mirin and soy sauce $8.50

I will be back to try the Tokyo burgers!

Hi Maria! Lunch in the city offers so many choices but I never seem to buy healthy lunches so it’s not so good for me!

Hi Anonymous: By Chinese vegetables I mean the green ones in the last photo. It was Chinese mustard greens. Chinese vegetables are the ones you can find in Chinese or Asian grocery stores.
