Another reason I love living in Melbourne is that I work in the CBD and there are so many wonderful asian restaurants to get a $10 or less lunch. unfortunately I work on William Street which is definitely not the mecca of asian restaurants and I usually jump on a tram to Swanston street or chinatown to indulge. Sometimes I don't have the time or energy to make the tram trip and need to satisfy my hunger with something closer, this is when it gets tough.
The other day was one of these occasions so I did a bit of blog research and decided to try K-Shock Bento Box for a Tatsuta burger. I found this gem via the encyclopaedic melbourne gastronome blog. Its not the easiest place to find as its hidden in a walk through foyer of a small office building. I followed Claire's suggestion and ordered it with wasabi mayo. It doesn't sound like much from the description deep fried chicken, lettuce, tomato, chilli seasoning and mayo on a sift burger bun) and that was exactly what I got but I was really happy with it. The highlights were the delicious crispy fried chicken and the lovely spongy soft bun. The mayo was not something I had tried before and I thought it went really well with the tomato and crunchy lettuce. For only $6.50 and a 5 minute walk from the office, I'll definitely be back for another one soon!
