19 Sep Peko Peko, Fitzroy
There’s quite a number of Japanese eateries to choose from when dining on Smith St, between Johnston Street and Victoria Parade. Today’s outing was to Peko Peko. It was a quirky yet cozy place with an upper level that had an huge, open ‘window’ that looked out over the ground floor and small kitchen.
The menu is neatly organised into small, medium and big dishes, offering the usual favourites as well as a few twists like sweet potato gyoza and chili tofu soba.
Peko Peko’s version of sashimidon was salmon and tuna marinated in soy and garlic. The soy and garlic marinade was delicious and they’d added enough of it so it soaked through part of the rice, making for a simple but satisfyingly tasty dinner.
