shukufuku bento

The verdict

Whether it's due to the student population or because it's a thoroughfare for commuters, Carlton is making a name for itself when it comes to handy eats, and if you’re looking for a delicious bento box or donburi bowl, look no further than Shukufuku.

Run by an ex-RMIT graduate who is ALL about home-cooked goodness, the super-stylish bento café serves rice dishes with fresh tofu teriyaki, crab meat-stuffed claws, chicken and beef toppings, as well as a cute selection of lemonades, iced teas and juices. You can sit in to enjoy a plate of Japanese flavours, or if you’re on the move, simply take away a handy box or bowl for a to-go snack.

So, the next time you’re hungrily passing by, be sure to drop in for a warm miso soup or box of Asian treats—we can guarantee you’ll be back for more!
