I don’t know about you but once in a while I’d love some good sushi. We have been to a few Japanese restaurants in Dublin and averagely they all make nice and fresh sushi and that include nigiri, all sorts of makizushi(rolled sushi, including futo maki, hoso maki, uramaki, and temaki), and gunkan maki. The only thing that’s not very common here is the inarizushi, which I personally enjoy a lot. *Sad
總之呢～前陣子我突然很想吃壽司，人又剛好在 Ilac 購物中心附近，所以我就順道去拜訪「心壽司便當店」啦～（太太不負責任的日文編譯，原名：KOKORO Sushi & Bento）
Anyways, the other day I was craving some sushi and I was near the Ilac shopping center so I quickly stopped by KOKORO Sushi & Bento to grab a sushi bento box.
Not sure if you can tell but it just rained heavily all of a sudden.
Here we are. It is advertised on their website that the store is 100% Irish/ Japanese managed. All sushi is prepared fresh daily using local fish & vegetable suppliers and premium Japanese rice.
The store looks clean and modern. Upon entering the store, you have the bento section on the left hand side and the deli section on the right hand side. They also have seats for you to dine in.
There are also a few extra seats in front of the window next to the deli section.
All their options are listed on the board.
來看一下便當區吧～這是我第一次來這間餐廳，看到便當的選擇時有驚訝到，很多種類欸～如果你跟我一樣喜歡鮭魚的話，那你應該會很滿意他們的壽司，非常多鮭魚組合，還有一個便當叫做 Omega 3 極致鮭魚。
Let’s take a closer look at their bento and sushi. It was my first time visiting this place and I was amazed by how many cold and hot bento choices they offer. If you are like me who love salmon a lot then you’d find yourself satisfied with the options. There is even a bento called Omega 3 Salmon Superior Bento.
架上也有零星的壽司可以單買，同一個價位的買兩個就會比較便宜，譬如說兩個 1.95 歐、兩個 2.20 歐、兩個 2.45 歐等。
There are loose sushi and you can make your own box. Most of them have a deal if you got two from the same price range at a time, like 2 for 1.95, 2 for 2.20 or 2 for 2.45.
All of their bento comes with a bowl of miso soup, mild or spicy. This one here is their signature bento that includes daily selected nigiri, salmon, tuna & vegetable futomaki(big, fat rolls) with pickled daikon, soya beans with ginger, and soy sauce & washabi.
Since my husband is not a big fan of raw fish so it took me some time to find one that has less salmon.
They also have hot bento that you can order and eat in or take away. The options are many, too. Here you have Tofu Pumpkin & Curry, which is a vegetarian dish, Teriyaki, Cha-Han, Spicy Seafood Rice etc.
The staff is super nice btw.
Okay, now I had chosen my bento, let’s go home. I only got one to share with husby because we also had some ramen this day. It’s cold so we got to eat something warm you know hehehe.
我買了這一個～這是他們季節限定的秋日便當（一個 10.85 歐，附味噌湯，但是我們有拉麵，所以我就沒拿湯了。）
This is the one I got. It is their seasonal special, Aki bento. (10.85 euros with a bowl of spicy miso soup since we were to have ramen, I didn’t get the miso soup)
I chose this one because it comes with four salmon nigiri which me like and four different kinds of futomaki. I believe from left to right they are Crab Meat & Avocado, Shrimp Tempura, Tuna and Salmon. All these flavors are great. The fish are fresh and the rice is nice and firm, being not soggy or dry & tough. The wasabi was quite mild to my taste. I like how they have different coatings for each roll, it makes the bento look colorful.
The salmon nigiri is nice however the salmon is a little bit on the thin side. Me and my husband shared this bento and we had it without the miso soup so if you nom nom this entire bento by yourself, I think it’ll be quite filling.
KOKORO Sushi & Bento is a place I’d go back if I want some lovely fish with rice. I’d like to try some of their hot bento as well. I just found out they also serve desserts and I’m very ingruied by their Green Tea Cheesecake and Dorayaki, will definitely try it next time.
Overall, I think the sushi is reasonably priced, lots of varieties and flavors and is fresh and tasty.
