In August 2001, the long-held dream of Chef Aoki was realised, his own restaurant in Bridport Street, Albert Park, named Eis (Eis is the phonetic alphabet of the word Ace). His passion for food and everyday life is displayed in his simple and elegant design of the menu. He believes that elegant and refined food is possible in Japanese cuisine, and this relies on a chefs training and creativity, technique, ingredient, freshness of produce and presentation on the plate. The interior and re-branding of Eis is created by award-winning architect, Architects EAT, who was responsible for the design of Maedaya Bar which won the 2008 Interior Design Award for hospitality interior. They have use their signature black and white finish to make Eis becomes now fresh, airy, simple and chic. With these as the forewords, Eis welcomes you to the next chapter of the restaurant in this re-launch in November 2008. Awards: The Age Cheap Eats 2005-2008 & The Age Good Guide 2008.
Born in the town of Obama (north of Kyoto), Tatsuya Yamazaki – Tats, for short – grew up surrounded by food and hospitality. At the age of seven, he was helping his father in the family’s chopstick factory, and learning to cook at home. After high school, he pursued his passion for Japanese cuisine by studying at Tsuji Cooking School in Osaka. His life as a professional chef has led him to Osaka, Tokyo, Barcelona and London. After moving to Melbourne in 2002, Tats worked at Aya Teppanyaki as a sushi chef and with the experience he gained, opened his own Japanese restaurant Moshi Moshi in 2008. Moshi Moshi quickly gained a following among the residents of Port Melbourne and several football clubs. Tat’s latest venture, Machi, is another step forward. The bar and restaurant offers dishes that combine Japanese technique with Australian produce. The name it self, was inspired by its location on Inkerman Street. “Machi” means small town, or community – a description fitting for the eclectic style of St Kilda. Since opening its doors in August 2012, Machi has received glowing reviews from The Age Newspaper, The Age Good Food Guide and The Weekly Review.
Pabu Grill & Sake
Eating and drinking are taken to an exciting new level at Pabu, a modern take on the traditional Japanese pubs or Izakaya. The word Pabu is Japanese for pub, and like any Aussie pub, Pabu is casual, friendly and always lively. You will be wowed by the cutting-edge Japanese-influenced décor as soon as you walk through the door. The infamous giant abacus on the ceiling has been the talk of the town ever since Pabu opened it’s door! At the front of the restaurant you will find the beautiful communal table made of recycled timber which welcomes single diners or larger groups. Stretching the length of the side-wall is the beautiful graffiti artwork inspired by the seasons of Japan by Hiroyasu Tsuri, an award winning local Japanese artist based in Melbourne.
