For over 20 years, Genji LLC has been rolling fresh sushi in more than 200 sushi bars in Whole Foods locations across the country. Genji is thrilled to collaborate with Whole Foods Market as they launch Genji Izakaya, a restaurant within Whole Foods restaurant row in Center City, Philadelphia.
An izakaya, or “place to drink”, can be found in every Japanese neighborhood. These lively neighborhood hangouts are the perfect place to relax and unwind with friends over refreshing drinks and small, tasty dishes. Like the classic izakaya, Genji Izakaya offers a comfortable and laid back setting to enjoy food and drinks for lunch, dinner, or whenever the mood strikes!
The Genji Izakaya kitchen is rolling out “japas” or Japanese small plates. Quick bites like Sushi Pizza, Salmon Carpaccio, Karaage Cones filled with crispy Japanese fried chicken, a variety of poke bowls, and Sushi Tacos are perfect for sharing amongst friends. Order a mini bowl of authentic ramen all to yourself, like Original Tonkotsu, Yuzu Chicken, or the vegetarian-friendly Veggie Ramen, also available spicy.
Genji Izakaya is located at Whole Foods Market- 2101 Pennsylvania Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130. Open 7 a.m. – 11 p.m. daily. Phone: 215-557-0015. Follow Genji on Twitter (@GenjiSushiBars), Instagram (@genjisushibars), or Facebook (GenjiSushiBars).
