Miyakodori

What’s the restaurant in a nutshell?

Miyakodori is an izakaya – a Japanese-style gastro pub – where you can get a drink, some food, and make new acquaintances in a relaxed and buzzy atmosphere. Miyakodori was founded by Max Westerlund Inazawa, John Forsell, and Lars Brennwald, three chefs and food enthusiasts who have worked together for many years at Frantzén, Adam/Albin, Lux, AG, and Rolf’s Kök. The restaurant is the trio’s interpretation of Miyakodori in Kawasaki, Japan, a third-generation yakitori izakaya that opened in the 1950s and where Westerlund Inazawa worked for many years.

What are the signature dishes?

The charcoal grill is at the centre of Miyakodori. We provide hot skewers to order, which you may eat by the grill or in the small dining area. In Japan, yakitori is more than just a snack; it is a gourmet culture unto itself. Miyakodori brings it to life with yakitori of pork belly and chicken, complemented with delectable side dishes. Don’t miss out on the ‘Chironfils’ oysters and tomato dashi.

Drinks, anyone?

The bar is located at the other end of the izakaya, on the opposite side of the kitchen, and specialises in ‘Shōchū’ highball cocktails, Japanese beer, and an amazing selection of sakes, many of which are offered by the glass.

What’s the neighbourhood like?

Norrmalm is the central borough of Stockholm. Peppered with parks, waterways and an island, this neighbourhood shows off the city’s ritzy side through theatres, museums and glorious plazas. Norrmalm has some excellent places to stay, great shopping, some very good restaurants and a couple of must-visit museums – not least Nationalmuseum, which was re-inaugurated in 2018, and Hallwylska Museet, an incredible inner-city palace that remains virtually untouched since the late 1800s.
