AWOMB the DIY Sushi Bar
AWOMB challenges its customers to both create and taste. Styled like an artist’s workshop, the restaurant-cum-shop is immediately appealing with its pared-back, minimalist aesthetic. Visitors are able to peruse the ceramics on sale, while making their own sushi. Laid out like a painter’s palette, there are large trays of fish, vegetables, rice and seasoning, inviting diners to compose their own colourful creations.
While the long line out the door might appear uninviting, AWOMB is worth the wait. A true sensory experience, diners are able to compose and roll their own sushi from scratch, taking on the responsibility of assembling their dinner. As far as flavours are concerned, everything is exceptional.
Letting your imagination run wild, it’s easy to be pleasantly surprised by unusual food pairings. It is however possible to play it safe by opting for a classic like salmon avocado. Each creation is accompanied by soup, noodles and other traditional Japanese side dishes.
Address: 189 Ubaynagi-chou Nakagyo-ku Kyoto 604-8213
Opening hours: Monday to Sunday, 12am-4pm, 6pm-9pmhttp://www.awomb.com/
