Ever since its arrival in 2019, Yoko has been winning the hearts of Brisbanites by giving Japanese cuisine a new flare. Inspired by the Japanese izakaya dining scene, the restaurant infuses the Howard Smith Wharves precinct with an extra touch of vibrancy and fun. The menu boasts flavoursome bites that you’ll be fighting over, including a delectable raw section featuring the beloved kingfish with sesame and kohlrabi, and scallops with yuzu kosho and silken tofu. It wouldn’t be a true izakaya bar without some great alcohol, and Yoko’s cocktail list is nothing short of being delicious. Sip on their yuzu and rum slushie with passionfruit and mandarin to accompany those delightful plates.
