Sushi Bar and Izakaya.
Yujo Izakaya is a traditional Japanese tavern and restaurant located on Kyadondo Road in the heart of Nakasero. We specialize in Japanese Soul Food and Sake (Brewed Rice Drink) which we prepare using fresh local produce and select ingredients imported from all over Japan. Our restaurant features a hot kitchen, sushi bar, and most recently a craft brewery next door with seasonal beers on tap all year round!
What is "Sushi?"
Sushi is a Japanese food consisting of steamed and seasoned rice combined with other ingredients like seafood, vegetables and with our modern California-style interpretation, even some tropical fruits! Ingredients and forms of sushi presentation vary widely, but the ingredient which all sushi have in common is the rice.
How about "Izakaya," what's that?
An Izakaya is a type of Japanese drinking establishment that serves food to accompany the drinks. It's a casual spot for after-work drinking and relaxing when away from home, and is a place where people can feel free to be open, share food, make a little noise, and construct new friendships.
We've got some shelves which focus on a zero waste product we've learned about in Kamikatsu Town and Oki Town in Japan, which sells ingredients for cooking at home as well as locally produced crafts. Feel free to browse these shelves and the other shops and cafe that have been popping up round the restaurant!
