Why we love it?

There’s a few reasons why Wriggle love the sushi at Cardiff Bay’s Yakitori #1 – their fish is stunningly fresh and someone in the kitchen knows what they’re doing with a knife. Sashimi platters are an exercise in precisely executed simplicity whilst maki rolls are beautifully decorated with bright orange fish roe and seaweed fronds. But, it’s not just the sushi at this modern Japanese canteen which is worth checking out. Soba noodles are loaded with plenty of meat (unlike that well known chain place), vegetable tempura is served in the lightest of batters and golden gyoza are stuffed with fragrant fillings. In an area which is dominated by chain restaurants, Yakitori #1 is a beacon of quality independence.

Wriggle Highlights
  • Order a sushi and sashimi platter to sample a range of the fish
  • Savour a Japanese drink to go with your food from plum wine to Sapporo lager
  • Get some noodles to share if you aren’t stuffed after all that sushi
