Japanese Izakayas are a type of bar best suited to punters looking to grab a drink (or two), settle in, and make themselves comfortable. Small-sized dishes are served alongside alcohol to ensure a highly palatable time, and this very concept has inspired a new, seasonal experience at Boxer, the 12-seat bar at the front of Parnell’s Pasture restaurant, owned and operated by award-winning chef Ed Verner.
A selection of yakitori will be on offer, from scampi ‘shrimp toast’ to the return of sister eatery Alpha’s cult-favourite, 100-day aged wagyu katsu sandwich. There will also be exquisite large-format dishes like spring donabe cooked over the Pasture fire and whole-aged duck with delectable accompaniments (like duck-fat pretzels and creamed matcha).
Don’t miss out—book your spot at Boxer today.
