I was in the city for MIFF one weekend and had a quick Daiso/Lunch session with Violet and James. They're always so good about my indulging my food cravings. I'd wanted really good Japanese food and they suggested Kaneda, located in the Mid City Arcade along Bourke.
Having never really stepped into the Arcade, I was surprised to find such a gem, the food was delicious, quick and cheap. Also one of the few places to do a Kara-age properly I reckon. Violet and James recommended that we have the soft shell crab. It's a winner, definitely.
