Missing those spicy bowls of ramen and crisp katsu sandos? Place your order and enjoy a home-delivered Japanese feast in the comfort of your living room.

Calia

Specialising in high-end groceries, Calia brings the gourmet experience to your pantry. Let their chefs do the work and order a home-delivered meal like the crispy roast pork bowl. It’s an instant hit of free-range roast pork and ginger sauce served with a poached egg. Choose a bed of rice or mixed green salad with cherry tomatoes.

Niko Ou

The meat kings at Niko Ou specialise in Wagyu, presented in a bento box. With dipping sauces, croquettes, rice and miso soup, the BBQ bento has 100 grams of pink-marbled chargrilled beef. Choose the M7 or more-indulgent A5 Wagyu. Browse their delivery collections to add hot appetisers or a bottle of Junmai sake.

Ima Project Cafe

Lucky Carlton locals can pick up their pre-ordered lunch set from Ima Project. Delectable tastings of pickles and rice, miso soup and salad surround heroes like grilled fish or eggplant. Sandos and toasties round out the menu, along with matcha cupcakes and cheesecake. Drool over the full list of takeaway options on their website.

Ichigō

Eye-pleasing presentation is key to the ichigō aesthetic. It’s a detail you’ll notice when you order home-delivered treats like the ichigō shortcake. The picture-perfect Japanese sponge cake is layered with Chantilly cream and fresh strawberries. Don’t forget the main dish, maybe the glazed salmon ichi-ben tray with soba noodles and potato salad.

Kazuki

Savour Kazuki’s slow dining style at home. Their dinner for two is a four-course banquet, including Moreton Bay bug dumplings and a matcha tiramisu finale. Choose your winter main of duck, lamb, pork or Wagyu. Kazuki’s at Home meals can be ordered Friday to Sunday, for delivery within 15km of Carlton.

Ilza

Ilza’s home-style chicken katsu sandos are a Docklands sensation. Order them on UberEats and you can chow down on these crunchy cutlet delights without having to lift a finger in the kitchen. You could also choose their equally famous pork-cutlet sandwiches. But why stop there, when there’s fried chicken karaage, udon noodles and teriyaki ribs to try.

Nobu

Get a little Nobu luxury delivered with the omakase box for two. Specially curated for Nobu at Home, highlights include sashimi and signature black cod miso. The box comes with pre-dinner edamame, so all you need to add is some premium sake. Plan ahead and put in your order before 5pm for next-day delivery.

Meet Sando

Banish those brunchtime hunger pangs with a delivery from Meet Sando. We’re talking serious Japanese sando. Crumbed prawn is a chilli mayo and avocado dream, and crusted egg mayo comes with fresh ponzu salad. Order on UberEats and be tempted by brioche toasties and a choice of katsu rice bowls.

Mr Ramen San

Ramen doesn’t have to be pork-based, not when it’s cooked by Mr Ramen San. Pair his organic house-made noodles with vego ‘roast pork’ or tofu, and tick without egg if you’re vegan. Noodles and meat-free broth are delivered chilled by UberEats, with cooking instructions provided. Of course, carnivores can select their choice of meaty tonkotsu soup and delicious toppings.

Dohtonbori

Recreate the vibe of Osaka's eat street with a DIY foodie kit from Dohtonbori. Veggies, meat, cheese, sauce and all other ingredients arrive at your door fully prepped and ready to cook. Just pick your fave flavour combo – think cheesy corn or pork and kimchi – and they'll figure out the rest. Izakaya sides like gyoza, fried rice and yakitori are available to order, too.

Fresh air pancake

Jump on the soufflé pancakes trend with Fresh Air. Jiggly treats come with pocky, soy mochi and black sesame fixings. Or try their take on dorayaki, a flat azuki filled pancake stack. Not convinced? Just look at the tiramisu flavour. Available for pick up and delivery across major platforms.

Shujinko Ramen

Settle in for an evening of Japanese soul food from Shujinko Ramen. Put in your Doordash order, unearth your collection of chopsticks and side plates, and start streaming Lost in Translation. Begin with Osaka’s favourite street snack, takoyaki octopus balls slathered in mayo and bonito flakes. Follow with Shujinko’s signature pork-broth ramen, topped with grilled pork belly.

Hanaichi

If you’ve never tasted Japanese curry, you’re in for a treat from Hanaichi. Thick and fragrant, Hanaichi’s curry comes to you via UberEats with rice and your chosen crumbed chicken, pork loin or tofu. Add a side of red pickles for piquancy, and some refreshing Pokka peach tea.
