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!
