Kingfish cones from Tokyo Tina
From pillow-soft DIY bao to steaming bowls filled with chewy ramen noodles, one of Tokyo Tina’s best menu items is a well-kept secret. Fresh, melt-in-your-mouth kingfish complements spicy wasabi and sweet apples in Tokyo Tina’s chomp-able cones. Try to savour this delicate, modernised ceviche instead of inhaling your cone in one ogre-like mouthful.
U Cuoppo D’Amalfi at +39 Pizzeria
Only available at their recently opened Toorak restaurant, +39 Pizzeria’s traditional savoury “cuoppo” is filled with crispy fried calamari and zucchini with chilli mayo and a lemon wedge. It’s full-blown cone-y goodness.
