A NEW AND HOMEY IZAKAYA IN STOCKHOLM
An izakaya is a sort of Japanese gastro pub where people meet for drinks and food in a casual and chatty environment; this is what Miyakodori is all about.
At Upplandsgatan 7, you will find an intimate but laid-back place where you can enjoy delicious yakitori, beer, and drinks in a friendly and cheery atmosphere. At the heart of Miyakodori is our charcoal grill. Here we serve hot skewers as you order – to be enjoyed by the grill or in the small dining area. In the bar, you can treat yourself to an assortment of saké, highballs, and beer in a lively and relaxed setting.
Come here and get comfy with old and new friends. Book a table if you like, or drop by and grab a chair.
THE TRIO BEHIND MIYAKODORI
Miyakodori is started by Max Westerlund Inazawa, John Forsell, and Lars Brennwald, three chefs and food nuts with many years in the business, working at some of the best restaurants in Sweden and beyond.
Max, apart from working in izakayas in Japan, has worked in the kitchen in Frantzen. John has been involved in the Pontus Group and has worked at Rolfs Kök and AG. Lars has worked at Lux, Frantzen in Stockholm and Singapore, and Adam/Albin. Now they come together to share their love of izakaya food culture with Stockholm.
WE LOVE YAKITORI
In Japan, yakitori is more than simple finger food – it is a gastronomic culture, all of its own. At Miyakodori, we bring it to life. By our grill, we offer a changing menu of yakitori made to order cooked over burning charcoal. The result is something different and truly unique. Come here for your first fix; we are pretty confident you will come back.
A BRAND NEW PLACE THAT’S BEEN AROUND SINCE THE 1950s
To say that we are a new restaurant is only half true. In Kawasaki, outside Tokyo, you will find the original Miyakodori, a third-generation yakitori izakaya that started in the ’50s. When living in Japan, Max, one of us founders, had the privilege of working there and became close friends with the family.
From the outside, the place may not look much to the world, but step inside and grab a seat, and you will be in for a treat; great food crafted with meticulous attention to detail; guests treated as friends; a relaxed and homey atmosphere. To us, it embodies everything we love about izakaya culture.
When we decided to start our place in Stockholm, we asked them to help us come up with a name. Their suggestion was Miyakodori. We are proud to pick up the baton. We won’t try to recreate the original place, but we will do our best to capture its spirit – it’s all about real food and real people.
