Kevin Pak (Shujinko), Benny Lui and Khoa Le are bringing a piece of Tokyo street culture to Midcity Arcade. Yokocho literally translates as "alleyway". It will serve three styles of Japanese: sushi and sashimi; yakitori; and tempura. Bento boxes and a variety of share plates will also be available.
“We chose this venue as it brings back a lot of memories in Midcity Arcade, where in my younger years used to watch Asian movies and hang out at the old Red Silks balcony. As you peer down the walkway of Mid City, it does give you that illusion that you are in a Tokyo alley,” Lui says. “I believe that Melbourne sorely needed a place like this. A place to relax, unwind that allows you to escape the daily grind.”
