Japanese-inspired salad bar FISHBOWL is opening their fourth Melbourne outpost on Swan St Richmond next week and is celebrating by offering all customers half-priced bowls for their first week of trade now until Sunday 15 November. The new store takes over the former Laneway Greens site at 89 Swan Street Richmond.

Born in Bondi by three young founders in 2016, FISHBOWL has rapidly earned their reputation as one of the best QSRs in the country. Their first foray into the Melbourne scene was their Docklands store which opened in 2019, feeding busy corporates and office workers. In 2020 they opened two ghost kitchens that operate on a delivery-only basis in Collingwood and Windsor. For those new to the concept, FISHBOWL specialises in made-to-order salads with a Japanese twist.

The salads and warm bowls involve a combination of thoughtfully sourced proteins (think wild-caught tuna, Rangers Valley beef, miso roasted eggplant and hand pressed tofu), delicious dressings made in house and fresh local produce. Customers can choose from a menu of made up salads and bowls, like their most popular ‘OG’ featuring salmon sashimi, shallots, kale, beets, red onion & edamame with roasted sesame dressing, seaweed, tobiko and crispy shallots. Or, choose your own adventure and customise the bases, protein, vegetables, dressings and crunches to your liking.

FISHBOWL is located 89 Swan St, Richmond VIC 3121.Opening hours Mon – Sun, 11am – 9pm
