The Windsor end of Chapel Street has become the centre of Melbourne’s hippest Asian fusion restaurants. Hawker Hall, Hanoi Hannah, Tokyo Tina, Mr Myagi and Susie Wong all call Windsor home, and joining the fray is Sash Japanese Pizza.
There’s a mouthwatering selection of Japanese fusion delights on the menu at Sash, but the main attraction is a Japanese take on pizza – an intriguing combination which, it turns out, is a match made in heaven.
We started out with cocktails, including the lychee martini, which was perfection in a glass. You can order a la carte or opt, as we did, for the “Give it To Me” menu, a selection of dishes chosen by the chef that might include chilli crab pizza (on a squid-ink infused pizza base) or spicy tuna tacos. We also tried the crispy chilli mayo prawns and finished with the chocolate macaron ice-cream.
The fine food and Japandi decor mean this new kid on the block can easily hold its own with the cool Windsor crowd.
