A Modern Twist on Japanese Classics: Kyoka Japanese Kitchen

Calling all sushi lovers and cocktail enthusiasts! Kyoka Japanese Kitchen welcomes you with open arms (or should we say, a warm “konnichiwa!”). This cozy Kyoto-inspired restaurant is your one-stop shop for modern Japanese staples, featuring everything from crispy katsu and supersized sushi rolls to an extensive selection of specialty sake and Japanese whiskey.

Of course, their vibrant signature cocktails are a must-try. We highly recommend the spicy tuna roll, the freshly made Kyoka gyoza, and the Nabeyaki udon, best paired with their signature “Hakutini” cocktail – a delightful blend of Japanese Haku vodka and dry sake.
