Wawawa Izakaya

For the vibrant fresh flavours of Japanese cuisine, discerning Cairns diners head to Wawawa Izakaya on Lake Street. From the colourful wall murals of a Japanese woman and Mount Fuji to bright neon signage, this restaurant sets a trendy vibe for delving into sushi, sashimi and bento delights, while chilling out with a Sapporo beer in hand. Kick start your culinary adventure with imported Hokkaido scallops, blazed and served with OMG secret sauce; before devouring a plate of spicy yellowfin tuna sushi rolls, with Japanese chilli mix, crunchy cucumber and sesame seeds. Those with heartier tastes may opt for Wawawa’s chicken teriyaki bento box – grilled chicken, karaage, gyoza, rice and jappyslaw; or a salmon poke bowl, with avocado, kimchi, pickled radish, nori, edamame and flying fish roe.
