Eatokyo is a trendy Japanese restaurant perfectly located on the edge of Temple Bar and facing Aston Quay in Dublin. The owner of the restaurant and the friendly restaurant manager Jay are both passionate about supporting local Irish producers and using quality ingredients. After eating the food in Eatokyo you won’t be surprised to hear that they make their sauces and dips from scratch to ensure the best flavour comes through in all their dishes.
I had lunch in Eatokyo with my friend Natalia from Smiles Photography and she took some beautiful photos for me to share with you here. Following the Japanese way of eating we enjoyed a mix of dishes from the menu and shared them. The prawn tempura was delicious. The batter was light and crispy just as it should be and the dipping sauce was full of flavour and umami. I’m so happy to say that they have “Fused by Fiona Uyema” my range of flavoured soy sauces on table-top and available to purchase in-store.
I can’t go to Eatokyo without ordering a sushi platter. We ordered a mixed sushi platter with nigiri, maki and sashimi and a rainbow roll (ebi tempura roll topped with tuna, salmon, smoked salmon and avocado). Everything was so fresh and delicious.
We finished the meal with seafood ramen and gyoza. The presentation of all the dishes was superb. I’m happy to say you can get good quality Japanese food in Dublin. Finally!
This is a unique opportunity to learn about Japanese home cooking and it’s wonderful health benefits. During the class I will introduce you to basic Japanese ingredients and where they can be sourced in your local supermarket, speciality store, health shop or fishmonger.
Throughout the class I will give tips and easy to follow instructions to give you the confidence to start the Japanese way of eating in your home and kitchen. I will share the knowledge I learned from my Japanese neighbours and friends while living in Japan for 3 years. I believe the Japanese diet keeps me well today and helped with my recovery from cancer in 2008.
This is a hands-on cooking class with lots of fun and interaction, including drinks on arrival and a sit down lunch at the end of the class. Some of the dishes included on the class agenda are sushi, gyoza, teriyaki, miso soup. You can also ask me to include a specific dish on the agenda!
The class is located in the stunning showrooms of Miele Gallery in Citywest Dublin (just off the N7) and takes place on Saturday May 27th from 10:30am to 1:30pm. Tickets are priced at €65.

I wanted to mark a little success here on my blog. This month I was so grateful to receive support from one of Dublin’s popular Japanese Noodle & Sushi bars “Eatokyo”. “Fused by Fiona Uyema” soy sauces are now available as a condiment on all the tables in Eatokyo. I think it’s so powerful when restaurants support local food start-ups and appreciate the quality and taste of the products they use in their kitchens and serve to their customers.
Eatokyo has recently received positive reviews from restaurant critics such as Lucinda O’Sullivan and Tom Doorley. I popped over to Eatokyo last week to thank them for their support and to deliver my first soy sauce order to them. Woohoo!! I met Jay the restaurant manager and enjoyed a beautiful lunch with him (everything was so fresh and delicious). You can see the photos I took of my lunch below.
