Your Local Taster of Japan
Masaya and Soya opened A Red Dot restaurant in November 2016 with a vision to introduce real Japanese food to people in Traralgon and the wider Latrobe Valley. With a selection of lunch and dinner menu treats including sushi, gyoza, tonkatsu and okonmi-yaki, they deem their signature dish to be the teriyaki chicken.
When considering the difference between Japanese and Australian palates, Masaya has noticed that there is a wider range of cultures and tastes to cater to here. “Some people don't eat pork while some don't eat beef, and there are a lot of vegetarians!”
With the lifting of restrictions, the restaurant is now able to seat up to 20 diners and Masaya is committed to continue “providing a safe dining space and serving quality food as usual.”
