Mr Miyagi Chapel Street
You might know the name from the karate kid, but soon it’ll be synonymous with the Melbourne food scene. Mr Miyagi is a newly launched, cleverly presented Japanese restaurant on the bustling Chapel Street.
The guestlist was a veritable who’s who of the Melbourne food scene including Vue de Monde restauranteur Marvin Holder and Meatball and Wine Bar’s Matteo Bruno.
Adorned with on-trend neon lighting and accessories, Mr Miyagi is dressed to kill. Eades and Bergman created the interior design and punchy fit out that adds to the uber cool ambience.
Quirky but delicious cocktail recipes fill the menu. Astro Boy mixes strawberry, fresh ginger, white chocolate and Sake. The evening’s favourite though was Hello Kitty Sour; Shochu, nashi pear, sweet lychee and egg white. For those who like their drinks a little more straight, there were plentiful options for Japanese beers too.
All Mr Miyagi’s restaurant staff were friendly and discerning, making sure guests had plenty to eat and drink. As the night came to an end, they handed each guest a sealed envelope with 5 things to know about Sake and some other playful notes:
‘Mr. M says, if you can read this you need another drink.’
‘Mrs. M says, you want to look good in your dress? You order the sashimi!’ ☆
