Small on size and big on vibes, this understatedly hip little shack serves Japanese food to the sound of smooth grooves.
Recipe for Temaki: fold together great Japanese food with woke staff and a bohemian playlist. Bake in a funky little shack until you have a happy belly and are soaked in mellow-flavoured vibes. Although narrow, the venue is full of oh-so-hip reclaimed wood, flashing neon lights, and a muddle of different shaped lampshades, which look like they’re floating at the height of the high ceiling. There’s plenty on the menu beyond notorious Glasgow lunchtime staple, the sushi burrito, including plenty for vegans. The k-cup is a fancy name for big bowl of rice with your choice of topping, such as chilli beef, garlic mushrooms or panko-breaded salmon in a lightly spiced, thick katsu curry sauce. Try a sushi roll which is coated in tempura batter and deep-fried – you are in the Weege, after all. The crispy batter on the outside complements your choice of hot filling, such as spicy tuna or sweet potato – though they’re so big that you can’t wolf them down in a oner, no matter how hard you try.
