Tokyo Pop // Melbourne Emporium

Tokyo Pop TangerT (3)
Tokyo Pop is a nice and simple Japanese inspired restaurant in the Emporium. It’s quite cheap and there is plenty of variety on their menu. I have been pleasantly surprised by my visit here and wished I had found out about this place earlier while I was still visiting the city quite often. Oh well! I’m sorry I can’t exactly recall the food prices but below is my rough estimation (from memory it wasn’t very expensive compared to other places in the Emporium!).

Ramen (Approx $8-9) (Friend’s dish)

Seaweed and Tofu Salad (Approx $6.50)
This was actually really delicious. I was so happy eating this and actually it was surprisingly big! The seaweed portion is really generous and the sesame salad dressing is great for tying everything together. The tofu was really soft and I didn’t expect it but I felt full afterwards! It’s a great snack. Tokyo Pop TangerT (5)
Okonomiyaki (Japanese Vegetable Pancake) Approx ($5)
As I thought I would still be hungry, I ordered this to accompany my salad (with regrets because I was actually not that hungry to begin with!). This was nice, but one or the other would have been fine for my tummy! I like how generous they are with the sauce because it really lifts the pancake. I generally like Okonomiyaki’s anyway so I thought Tokyo pop’s rendition of it was good.

This is the seating area of Tokyo Pop. It’s located downstairs in the Emporium – it’s one of those restaurants where you order and pay for your food at the front first. I would definitely come back and try other things on their menu, but honestly I think I’ll just be too tempted to get that salad again :)
