After a crazy week full of chores, jobs and events was at Yakuza First Floor restaurant, signed by Chef Olivier, that I decided to close in great and good company this week.
I share with you today my first time, not at an Olivier restaurant, but at the Yakuza First Floor. Installed on the first floor of the former Real Fábrica das Sedas, it is with a soft and sublime touch that the space surrounds us with its oriental decoration inspired by the Japanese mafia and makes us feel in a new dimension where the surprising fusion between East and West becomes notice in every corner and nook of the restaurant. A sushi bar with a counter, tables overlooking a Kaiyu-shiki garden or private rooms in perfect harmony toast us with a creative, eclectic and full of delicious surprises menu.
“The perfect place for lovers, addicted and crazy for sushi like me! An exquisite taste experience filling the eyes and belly, small pieces of art that sharpen and stimulate hidden places in the soul of those who try them.”
A Mojito Yakuza and a Japanese Whiskey Sour did the honors of the house, served at the bar and brought to the table of delight. We started the experience. At this point I could not imagine all the surprises that were about to happen, the first marked by the arrival of the delicious and crispy sakana tacos and the vegetables and chicken gyosas. I have to say that at this time both I and my company were already between toasts, smiles and full of pleasure in the choice and the flavors that we were discovering. In the background was playing a playlist that fit perfectly and marked the moment in a memorable way. “I Do not Miss You”, Air & Beth Hirsch – ‘All I need’ – Chaka Khan – ‘Is not Nobody’, The Addict – ‘Bo Saris’, Ayo – ‘Life is Real’, Angie Stone – ‘Wish I Did not Miss You’ ‘, among many others. Packed with these melodies we continue the tasty journey of discovery of the yakuza menu.
Among various types of gunkan, nigiris, cevich, sashimi shacho all of them orchestrated in a unique, exquisite and full of special ingredients was easy to levitate and float from one dish to another without stopping to think when will be the next time I will float back to the restaurant. The final finish, this came with the selection of desserts rich in texture and flavor. Burnt Jasmine Cream, Kit Kat, Gunka Pineapple and Green Tea Fondant with Sesame Ice Cream.
I highly recommend you to visit and experience all the Yakuza refinements. However I have to share the bad part of going there … Total addition!
I went there for dinner but there is also a lunch menu, with a friendlier price.
I leave you here everything you need to know to get there.
Enjoy, and if you go there say greetings from me 🙂
