Tora (Invited)

As soon as I arrived at Tora, I felt so familiar with the space and the interior. Turn's out I went to the space before when it's as cafe called Tamper Food & Coffee. Now, a team of husband and wive take over the space, redecorated them and make it feel homey but also slick. Tora located in High St but a bit far of the Chapel St, the owner Daniel Liao wants Tora to feel a bit quite and their customers able to relax.

The hospitality is superb, even though there's only two of them there. Started with Plum wine called YOSHIKUBO Usagi Ume Nigori from Ibaraki, Japan ($12). I'm a big fan of sweet plum wine and this one, I could drink it all day. Not too strong, sweet but not over powering.


Started with a bang! That's the right sentences to describe the starters; Chicken tsukune (2pcs/$12), Tempura corn fritters ($12) and Smoked Hock Croquettes (2pcs/$10). Super juicy sweet tsukune then smooth creamy salty croquettes but the star definitely the corn fritters. Amazingly crunchy, possibly the best corn fritters I have tasted in Melbourne. Definitely recommended!





Miso Butter Barramundi ($24), Chilli Caramel Beef Ribs ($24) and Scallion Pancake ($7). Both of the main were delicious. Perfectly cooked fish and melts in your mouth beef ribs. If I have to choose, I picked the beef, comes with fresh Thai salad. The fish comes with a rather complex friends; carrot ginger puree, sesame asparagus,tomato, salsa verde, candied walnuts.


Brulee Egg Tart ($10). They only have two dessert menu and I honestly want more dessert options, maybe the will in the future. Simple egg tart with sour berry and mandarin sauce. I want thicker egg custard in the middle to balanced out the acidity.
