Japanese food lovers rejoice, Kage Nikkei Restobar has finally opened its doors in Mississauga.

The Japanese fusion restobar had been said to be coming to Mississauga for a long time but we’re happy to say the doors at 3038 Hurontario Street, Unit 9, are open and waiting!

Like me, you probably aren’t fluent in Japanese, so the term “nikkei” might confuse you. Turns out, it means “foreign” in Japanese, so Kage Nikkei is a Japanese restaurant that serves foods from other cultures, cooked in classic Japanese styles.

Kage Nikkei offers four different menu options: cold, hot, sharing plates, and desserts. The hot menu includes Boom Shrooms, Ebi Mayo, Karaage, and Beef Corn Taco, while the cold options are Kage Slaw, Beef Tataki, Tofu, Ceviche, and more. The sharing plate then includes Hot Stone Fried Duck Rice, Yokozuna’s Street Roll, and Katsu, and the dessert menu consists of ice cream and mini donuts.

Kage Nikkei’s stylish and exotic menu is reflected on the design of the restaurant. A huge mural adorns the back wall – which is certainly a talking point – and the restobar is lit with hanging cylindrical fixtures of low light. Beyond that there are simple wooden tables and chairs, as well as blue velour bar stools. It’s a quiet and intimate setting where the food is the focus.

Kage Nikkei has brought a new brand of Japanese fusion food to Mississauga. The restaurant is open now near Hurontario and Dundas, and it is open 5 PM to midnight most days, and closed on Mondays. If you fancy something a little different, give Kage Nikkei Restobar a shot!
