Have you ever dreamt of a dive bar that serves really good Japanese food? We have. Mostly when we’re drunk in a dive bar and manically googling ‘sashashimi nnear mey pleadse’. Well, good news: this spot on King’s Road is a cross between a casual izakaya and a slightly grimy rock ‘n’ roll bar. They serve everything from a tuna sashimi pizza small plate, to pork belly buns, to maki and sashimi platters, as well as a whole host of cocktails. This place is loud, proud, and a lot of fun. And you definitely shouldn't miss out on the peanut miso duck confit and pancakes, they’re a must-order here.
