One of the tastiest sushi and noodle bars in Cork is tucked away on 90 Oliver Plunkett Street, over O’Donovan’s Off Licence.
Wabisabi opened last July, showcasing a real taste of Japanese cuisine to the people of Cork. Set in a minimalist setting with Japanese ethnic interior stylings, the chefs at Wabisabi construct delicate sushi platters of cooked and raw delicacies.
The starter menus boast dishes like the Age gyoza; deep fried Japanese-style dumplings filled with chicken and garlic chives, and beef or tuna-filled tataki; a seared fillet of choice served with tangy ponzu sauce.
The popular Japanese tempura are regular favourites with a selection of Tempura Moriawase (king prawns, vegetable and salmon), Ebi Tempura (king prawn) and Yasai Tempura (vegetable).
