Yo! Sushi. They are down Clarendon Street, near the Tower Records store on Wicklow Street. I love this neighbourhood, all the streets are cobblestone and while they allow cars, they are typically narrow in European fashion and are pedestrian friendly.
The other sushi restaurant we go to is across the Liffey near Jervis Street. That restaurant is called Kokoro sushi. I have to say the sushi at Kokoro tastes a little bit more authentic. However, Yo! Sushi on the south side of the river does quite a nice job. The ingredients are all fresh, and the food is generally good stuff.
The restaurant interior looks like it came out of a 1970's Japanese fashion magazine. I love the chrome globe lights, the house plants and the groovy use of orange everywhere possible. They have a line of tables set up with Sushi boats designed by the Jetsons going around them on a little conveyor belt. They look like little UFOs. Its all very Space Age. We will come here some time and have a real sit-down meal. Then I will post some photos.
