Summer in the City: Favourites from our Menu
We’ve chosen a few items from across our dining menus to bring you a varied, summer-ready selection of dishes. Try our new aburi-style Japas at North City, indulge in Asian grilled meat, or try our lighter vegetarian/vegan options. Read on!
1. ABURI-style oysters
Fresh Galway Bay Oysters with Miso Butter and trout Caviar. Served aburi-style: part grilled, part raw.
What’s summer without oysters? This is an Irish classic with a rich Japanese twist. Served beautifully over seaweed and banana leaf.
Available at North City.
2. ISHI YAKI BIBIMBAP
Thinly sliced beef with mixed vegetables on zakkoku rice in a traditional clay pot with a fried egg; served with hot pepper sauce and miso soup.
This Korean-inspired rice dish is a savoury favourite for grilled meat lovers; a balance between warm and cool, sweet and spicy, and protein and greens, it’s the perfect filling summer dish.
Available at South City.
3. rainbow roll
Crayfish and cucumber-filled norimaki, topped with avocado, tuna, salmon, and whitefish - then garnished with masago and wasabi mayonnaise. Served with either black or white rice.
A staple Chef Special norimaki roll, the Rainbow Roll is an evolution of the California Roll which developed in 1960s California and utilized locally available seafood, avocados, and other produce. A dynamic and perfectly summery sushi roll.
4. SAYKIO TOFU (V)
Tofu marinated in sweet miso and grilled for a creamy, slightly sweet flavour.
A new menu item at Yamamori North City, this vegetarian Japa (small plate) is a delicate mix of warm and cool, with a sweet homemade miso flavour garnished with tangy lime.
Available at North City.
5. GYOZA (VARIOUS)
Traditional hand-parceled dumplings stuffed with various seasoned fillings: Pork, Venison, Ebi prawn, Kabocha (v), or Spinach and Shiitake (v).
A classic starter or small dishes, great for any season. Our 3 locations offer varying versions of Gyoza - the newest: Venison Gyoza at North City, served with homemade rayu sauce.
6. sashimi & nigiri
Sashimi is delicately sliced raw fish, a thoroughly Japanese tradition. Nigiri is sliced fish or veg over a bed of rice.
With only the freshest fish selection possible, we recommend any of our various selections of sashimi and nigiri for a light and cooling dish (also available in vegetarian/vegan). Some of the fish offered includes, hamachi, salmon, tuna, masu, mackerel, unagi (eel), crab, amongst others. All fish comes fresh off the coast of Ireland.
7. house lemonade
Flavours: Raspberry, Passionfruit, Lychee, Ginger, Mango, and Classic
Yamamori house lemonades are the most refreshing cooler to accent a summertime lunch or dinner. And the best part: our lemonades can be “upgraded” with a shot of gin, vodka, whiskey, or a special request. What’s not to love? Available at all locations.
