Before Takashi Miyazaki opened his tiny Japanese restaurant and take-away on Evergreen Street in the centre of Cork city, the only people in Ireland who had any idea of the potential of Japanese cooking were those who had visited Japan, or those who had eaten in the legendary Shiro Japanese Dinner House in West Cork, twenty five years ago. As the Shiro had two tables, not many people managed that, so Mr Miyazaki’s powerful, authoritative cooking has been nothing less than a revelation for food lovers over the last two years. It’s not just the flavours of the food, based on an extraordinary kombu stock, that are so surprising: eat the savoury custard with shiitake and prawns, and the texture is like no custard you have ever eaten. In this tiny, Tardis-like room, you find the universe of Japanese cookery.
