Yo! Kitchen, famed for introducing the famous Japanese conveyor belt to the UK, has opened a brand-new restaurant in Dublin.

Only their second-ever full-service restaurant, the new concept will focus on kyoku – Japanese for sharing.

New introductions on the menu include Black Cod, Katsu Curry Arancini (YUM!) and an unusual sounding Sashimi Pizza. I’m intrigued…

Think rustic earthy kitchenware, minimalist modern design and urban Tokyo street style. In other words, the epitome of Japanese chicness.

Drawing inspiration from the markets and backstreets of Tokyo, Yo! Kitchen is an Izakaya-style menu.

What the hell does that mean? Good question.

An izakaya is basically the Japanese equivalent to a pub, or at least is similar to one. Serving up tapas-style food that’s meant to be shared.

Some are casual, others are more traditional. The Dundrum branch boasts long shared tables and dishes ideal for mixing and matching with mates.

Located in Harvey Nichols in Dundrum, it couldn’t have come at a better time as we’re a nation obsessed with all things Japan, thanks to the ongoing RWC happening there right now.

So if you can’t quite swing a trip to Toyko, then this is the place to go and get your cultural fix. Bao Buns and California Rolls I’m coming for ya.
