No other chef in Ireland works as hard as self-improvement as Yoshimi Hayakawa. In recent years she spent three months in Tokyo studying sushi, in order to develop her plans to transform Wa Café in to Sushi Wa. Before that she enrolled at GMIT and spent time learning alongside Jess Murphy in Kai Restaurant. Happily, the results of these endeavours are here to eat In Sushi Wa, which specialises in Galway-Mae sushi, ie sushi made with fresh fish sourced exclusively from Galway Bay, and this is the sushi Ms Hayakawa will be featuring at weekends. But, whatever you decide to order, make sure not to miss the unique Japanese Snickers Bar dessert, of miso ice cream dusted with cocoa with peanut and black sesame seeds: it’s a blast.
