Dojo Sake Bar and Izakaya has opened at 9070 Research Blvd. The restaurant features a menu of fried (tomato croquette, chicken kara-age and kewpie shrimp), steamed (whitefish, drunken clams) and grilled (pork cheek and spinach) dishes, along with limited sushi offerings and both a miso and vegan miso ramen. In izayaka tradition, the Dojo serves a variety of alcohol (wine, sake, beer, sake-based cocktails and liquor) and is open very late (2 a.m. during the week and 2:45 a.m. on Friday and Saturday). The Dojo celebrates its opening with a party at 8 p.m. Saturday that includes a teppan cook-off, sake tasting, sake carafe painting and origami lessons. Tickets to the party are $5 and $10 for the sake blind-tasting event and can be purchased at DojoMatsuri.Eventbrite.com. Proceeds from the event will go to the Dell Children’s Medical Center.
