Elizabeth Street

Udon Yasan, soup with seaweed + tempura prawn

Street full of takeaways, especially Asian style. There is a place called Udon Yasan. It offers meals with prices that start at $4.50 or $5.50 for a plain Udon soup. It looks authentic, not a classic food court cheap style. 

Pepper Lunch – It is a Japanese franchise that you can also find in Sydney. They have combos with rice, sizzling meat or salad variation. It is quite nice and tasty!



China Town

Plenty of Asian food. There is a dumpling place, Japanese places as well as Vietnamese and Korean. China Town in Melbourne is absolutely a must to try.
