Royal Sushi and Izakaya Hosting a Pop-up in a Pop-up
Despite our doubts, Royal Sushi and Izakaya may be proving us wrong. The perpetually delayed Japanese pub recently told us they would be opening in sometime in July. We had our doubts, after the 5 year on-again off-again game they played with us.
However, we just found out the Royal Sushi and Izakaya team will be hosting a pop-up within a pop-up. Maybe they aren’t messing around this time. The team will be at the PHS pop-up garden on South Street this Thursday and Friday, June 23 and 24, starting at 6 p.m.
As far as the menu goes? Jesse Ito said he will definitely be making his “tuna guac” with some fresh Bluefin tuna from Mexico. Philly.com also reported there will be two cocktails from Royal Izakaya, as well.
But don’t get too excited, Ito said this isn’t a test run for any menu items or a sneak peek at what might come in July. “I’m just doing it for fun and to keep my knife skills sharp” said Ito. “This is what I love doing.”
