Spanning across 5,000 sq ft, Yaichi Kura is a newcomer to the lesser-trodden Kennedy Town exuding all things Japanese. From daily groceries to refined, and casual dining spots, it is equipped with everything to be the next sought-after destination.
The exciting opening boasts an elevated izakaya – Toge by Jyungi; all-day dining destination – Eclipse by Luna Café & Bar; celebrated Osaka bakery – Painduce; and one-stop Japanese store – 81Station.
Toge by Jyungin might just be the most-anticipated of all – when Hollywood giants Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio, and even President Donald Trump are served by head chef Shimoji Atsushi before he left Inakaya, a famed robatayaki restaurant in Tokyo. Their flagship 8-course tasting menu (from HK$980) serves exceptional east-meets-west delicacies, featuring tableside-cooked plates en papillote with Konbumori oyster, Akkeshi clam and more, French Style Oden Pot-au-feu (HK$88), Hiroshima Oyster Ajillo (HK$128) and Wagyu Beef Tataki in Uni Sauce (HK$298) aplenty.
Across the space is Luna Café & Bar, serving 40 guests with reinterpreted cult favourites, including the creamy Hokkaido Uni Carbonara (HK$168), Cod Crab Eggs Benedict (HK$148) and Double Cheesecake (HK$68), perfect with special house blend coffee. In view of the latest dining restrictions, diners can enjoy 20% off all orders on the three outlets.
Then there is Painduce, where 11 pastries and baked goods are baked with Japanese flour and fresh vegetables by Chef Masahiko Yoneyama. Highlights include smoked chicken & pumpkin toast (HK$23), sauteed shiitake mushroom toast and more. Head to 81Station for a final shopping spree, fulfilling your yearning for premium Japanese specialties from fresh produces to quality merchandise. It is also the pick-up point of Go81 if one wish to order from the ultimate duty-free shopping platform from Japan.
