Sushi Lunch: Meaning “hidden” in Japanese, URA Japanese Delicacy not-so-subtly tries to be the latest “hidden gem” in Sheung Wan, with a hipster-cool spot that serves modern fusion treats.
Look & Feel: The space is cozy, and there’s some funky mostly-black-and-white pop art on the walls. URA is a good balance between fun and fancy—you know you’re not getting fast food here, but it’s not thousand-dollar sushi either.
Meet the Chefs: Chefs Takaoka Kouji and Kimura Junichiro are running the show.
On the Menu: Westernized Japanese sharing dishes are on offer: we’re talking spicy cod roe cheese toast, or tuna cutlet sandwiches. There’s also sashimi and yakiniku-style charcoal-grilled goods for those craving something more traditional.
Service: Nothing out of the ordinary, but you should be expecting prompt and efficient staff.
Jeng: The lunch sets are great value for money, ranging from easy-peasy grilled chicken rice ($98) to fancy-schmancy sushi ($248).
Not So Jeng: Traditionalists might find the space too cool for school, although we certainly don’t mind.
Great for: URA is a logical choice for a casual post-work hangout or a let-loose lunch with colleagues.
FYI: The resto is owned by the same Chang brothers who dreamed up Indonesian mainstay IR1968 at L Place.
