Kuruya is a Donburi bar curated by  Koizen Omakase room in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Donburi is a Japanese “rice-bowl dish” consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Donburi meals are usually served in oversized rice bowls which are also called donburi. Order take away or come by our location at Aschebergsgatan 26 for some sake and beer. 

In the evening we serve Izakaya Moriawaze – a tasting menu for those of you that are more inclined towards japanese food culture and cuisine.

Beyond sushi

When traveling in Japan there is always so much good food to try but somehow we always ended up ordering Donburi, several times even. It is one of our favourite bowl food meals. Being Jet-lagged in the hotel room at 3am gathering with friends and family was always the perfect time for a good Donburi. It’s fun, easy, and absolutely delicious. We love the infinit combinations and different forms it can take. 

We miss it!
