Perfect for the perfect cocktails

SASH JAPANESE, WINDSOR: Coming here as part of a Melbourne Foodie Hub event, we were treated to a private function-styled opening, with a dozen or so dishes brought for us to sample. Sash is a new Japanese fusion restaurant right on Chapel St, a few doors down from the well-established Mr Miyagi. They specialise in Japanese fusion pizzas, as well as a particular few on crispy rice bases! Definitely an inventive and flavoursome menu that any Japanese food-lover adventurer must try.

Don’t worry – we had around 10 people eating all of this

The good fat: Such a variety of unique and exciting combinations of pizzas. The base was crisp, and the topping were plentiful. My favourite was the Ebi Mayo Prawn Sash-izza, not only because it features a thick, crispy rice base (first of its kind!), but also because of the juicy, large prawn that was atop each piece. The strong flavours of the sauces, not only in this one, but seen in other options such as the Den Miso Eggplant and Hoisin Duck were packed full of flavour that added an amazing kick to a relatively simple rice base, complementing the high quality of protein toppings deliciously.

Definitely a unique fusion idea!

The kingfish ceviche was tender and supplemented with a refreshing array of veggie dressings resting on a salted dash of soy sauce, ensuring that the fish was full of flavour but still retained its seafood texture.

Would’ve loved to try a taco!

The bad fat: The wasabi mayo was simply too strong on the Tuna and Sashimi Blue Cheese pizzas. It penetrated all aspects of the pizza and I couldn’t get rid of the spicy, mustard-like wasabi flavour out from anything, which was a real disappointment considering the textures and selections of seafood were so fresh and inviting.

Really loved the rice-based pizzas!

The yuzu cheesecake was a bit too light/watery for my liking, lacking the density of a strong cheesecake, and was a bit overwhelmed by the sourness of the yuzu. Whilst the macaron icecream was a stunner in photos, it was simply just a ball of icecream, wedged in a chocolate macaron without much other special features.

Fat-o-meter: 4/5


YES – A fun, exciting new concept in a vibrant location and beautiful interior vibes
