Thinking of something Japanese, quick and yummy? You are in the right place.
Rice workshop introduces itself as a Japanese rice bowl bar that offers quick Donburi (rice bowls) and bento boxes at great value.
It has many stores around Melbourne but this particular one has always been in Chinatown for more than 5 years now.
We were recently visit to try their winter menu, Spicy Pork Belly bowl.
We also tried their Grilled Teriyaki Salmon with some of their sides such as vegetable pancakes, fried squid and fried scallops.
Truly love their selections of side dishes which you can pick yourselves upon ordering your food at the counter.
Spicy Pork Belly bowl comes with salad too like everything else, the juicy pork belly is not too spicy, just enough kick for a mild donburi style dish.
The Grilled Teriyaki Salmon is well cooked and flaking easily as you would want from a perfectly cook Salmon.
The teriyaki is light and sweet and so nice to be enjoyed with the rice.
If you are a matcha fan, you may opt for their soft-serve.
We always buy it during summer, especially with the charcoal cone.
It is super great value and taste great. Too bad our soft serve was slightly too soft otherwise it would be perfect 🙂
The service is super swift, served hot and fresh. Rice Workshop is definitely your go-to place for a quick, good quality lunch with great value.
Note: We’d like to say thank you to Rice Workshop’s team for having us.
