Tokyo Kitchen opened its doors early this year and has already made itself a must-visit Dublin haunt. Granted, it’s not the easiest place to find, but once you spot it you truly can’t miss it – the art on the outside of the building is spectacular.
Its neighbor, Kish Fish, is a seafood wholesaler that provides Tokyo Kitchen with their regional fare. It’s literally transferred from the sea, to Kish Fish, then sent next door where it’s whipped up by the Tokyo Kitchen chefs. You can’t really get much more fresh than that!
When you walk up to Tokyo Kitchen, you will quickly notice there is no seating. Anywhere. It consists of a cute little counter where you order, and the kitchen behind. That’s it. Needless to say, it’s strictly take-away, which during this cracking summer weather is the perfect excuse for a picnic! And, get this – their wait space is air conditioned for comfort, a SERIOUS rarity in Dublin.
Tokyo Kitchen is open Mon – Sat on Bow Street in Smithfield, 11am – 4pm. Come hungry, leave with an incredible meal and your bank account’s dignity.
