Yoi Izakaya restaurant review: ‘The sushi selection is more interesting than most of what you’ll find in Dublin, but whether it would be up to Matt Damon’s standards is another matter’

After a few months of lockdown in Ireland, Matt Damon found himself craving good sushi. How do I know this? Because a SoCoDu shopkeeper charged with supplying the Damon family with the best of Irish produce during their sojourn in Dalkey called to ask if I could help. Apparently, Matt & Co had tried a number of options and hadn’t been overly impressed.

I racked my brains and suggested that, if money was no object, the Damons should send a driver to collect an order from Yoshimi Hayakawa’s Wa Sushi in Galway. Yoshimi serves Edomae-style sushi, which originated in Tokyo in the 1820s in the days before refrigeration as a way to preserve and enhance the taste of raw fish by marinating.
