2013 Award Winners ETHNIC RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR 2013
Michie Sushi, Dublin 6
There has been an ‘Ethnic Restaurant’ category in our awards since their inception in the early ‘90s and this year’s winner is an excellent example of the authenticity we admire.
Michel Piare’s business began as a take-away service and, as word-of-mouth spread, expanded to accommodate demand with a tiny 17-seater restaurant that includes a small counter perfect for locals awaiting their take-out orders. It’s down a narrow laneway tucked in between a few mews houses and business lock-ups but, despite an obscure location which has never enjoyed the benefits of passing trade, this tiny restaurant with decidedly modest décor serves up simply stunning Japanese food.
While most Japanese places are still serving pre-made sushi to varying standards Michie Sushi has raised the bar, delivering what may well be the finest Japanese food in the country, made with real flair and talent. Signature dishes feature taste sensations - like Fire Dragon roll, made with fresh eel, avocado, sushi rice and teriyaki rolled in piquant seven spices – while cooked dishes offer sublime Jenditions of Japanese classics.
Michie Sushi is a little gem.
