Etto. A restaurant that I had heard many whispers about, but never had the chance to visit.
Sitting at the bar, myself and my partner glanced over the menu and gave each other a knowing glance – this looked very promising.

A complete sucker for sashimi, this week I had a Japanese food craving that needed to be tackled.
Musashi, with its grey exterior and simple design, is tucked away on Capel Street and easy to pass by in favour of the more popular competition.
I hadn’t been back in three years, but I’m glad I finally did.
After much debating, but with the certainty that I’d definitely be getting sashimi, I settled on a big bowl of ramen with a selection of meat.
In the past, I’ve found Musashi to have very slow service, but much to my delight we were served swiftly with a waiter that could have gotten the award for the “most polite man of the year”.
Though the ramen’s broth could have been on the clearer side and the tofu was slightly overdone, the noodles and overall combination of food had a hearty feel. It was a filling meal.
But my winner was the raw salmon. My sashimi along with its soy and wasabi, was like a juicy kiss with the freshness of the fish heightening its flavour.
A hidden gem amongst some overpriced and not-so-nice sushi hubs in Dublin, Musashi is well worth a visit.
Come again? I need that sashimi again!
