Mushashi – Urban Dining

I’d been told about Mushashi on Capel Street by a couple of townsfolk. Best noodles in Dublin, appara. Me & the Bloke breezed in off the street on a Sunday evening only to find the place heaving. Business as usual for Mushashi, we were turned away & told to make a booking next time. So we did, two weeks later, on a Thursday night. This place is buzzy, busy & fun to be in. It’s all about being part of the city. Dublin’s a metropolis now, y’know!

The sushi is made to order & judging by the turnover here, all of the food is super fresh. Choose from a comprehensive, not to mention mouthwatering, sushi & sashimi menu. Then move on to a great choice of fishy starters, curries, stir fry & noodle dishes. The ramen & Teriyaki next door to us look totes delish. I ordered some prawn & pickled mackerel sushi & Himself tucked into Kushi Katsu (fried pork).

Round two, I munched a Teriyaki tofu steak & the Bloke went for Tatsuta chicken. Mine was absolutely yumsters, to use a technical culinary term. Crispy tofu, marinated & arranged in triangles on a bed of stir fried vegetables. Served with sticky white rice & a bowl of Miso soup, it was filling in that light, healthy Japanese way. His was a tasty soy & ginger marinated chicken breast, crispy fried with egg.

We enjoyed the din of Mushashi, sandwiched as we were between an American family & a gang of Ross O’Carroll Kelly types. Any great people watching spot gets the thumbs up from me. Don’t come here if you want to have a private conversation! But do come if you want fresh, delicious Japanese food at the best prices in town. The atmosphere in Mushashi is charged with the smart, urban Dublin I love.
