Seemingly ripped straight from the grungiest corners of Shibuya, TMK is a graffiti-covered sushi hotspot in Sheung Wan that serves up delicious fusion Japanese in unexpectedly novel ways.
The latest venture from Pirata Group, this temakeria (specialising in temaki, or cone-shaped sushi rolls) takes much of its inspiration from the late-night culture of Tokyo’s famously die-hard party scene, from the faux tattoo parlour decor to the very real shots of sake doled out by staff.
Playful dishes like the Tuna Hotdog in a rich yuzu mayo keep things fun and frivolous, as does the convivial atmosphere around the bar area, which doubles up as a large, focal table that parties of two can crowd around while they chow down.
Down-to-earth Japanese junk food washed down with top-notch sake and craft beer – what’s not to love about this punk-rock inspired Sheung Wan sushi hideaway? (Besides the hangover, of course.)
Shops G and H, G/F and M/F, 77-91 Queen’s Road West, Sheung Wan, 2662-2269, tmk.hk.
