Wabi Sabi Salon

Like Smith Street, where Wabi Sabi Salon lives, it’s a little bit funky and eclectic. With a variety of eating enclosures, you are allowed a sense of privacy. It’ll be a different experience every time you wonder in, either sitting on the benches or comfy lounge chairs, cushions on the floor to dining in the backyard garden. It’s all fun and games. No short of details here, best summed up by its tag line: “If Collingwood and Tokyo had a love child…” a bit of fusion between the predominantly old Japan and urban art grunge fill the spaces. A bit discerning is the traditional folk music that accompanies you in the toilet, that’s a little eerie for me. The food, like the place is not traditional. You won’t find teriyaki or Californian rolls here. I had the crumbed fried salmon with sour plum sauce, which was indeed as suggested and tart in flavour. The vibrant red sauce was visually appetising but I would have preferred a sweeter sauce. Not bound by the norms, Wabi Sabi Salon an alternative hideaway for those wanting something different.
