Pirata Group to launch new temakeria concept on Hollywood Road
Japanese temakeria restaurant concept TMK is set to open on Hong Kong’s Hollywood Road in mid-July.
The Pirata Group brand is being positioned as a “ballsy temakeria offering a wild experience and finger-licking good food”. The new venue’s executive chef Miguel Huelamo, supported by Japanese head chef Takeshi Suzuki, are offering a selection of classic and signature temaki rolls as well as sushi, fresh-from-the-sea sashimi and reimagined takes on traditional Japanese dishes.
“TMK is a missing piece in Hong Kong’s F&B market,” said Pirata Group cofounder Christian Talpo, the creative force behind TMK. “A unique, one-of-a-kind punk-inspired restaurant that paves the way for novel all-day dining and late-night experiences.”
Promotional material for the restaurant promise “a lawless venue where tattooed bikers and black-clad punks are served a varied selection of sake, Japanese highballs and craft beer”. Inspired by the exuberance and irreverence of punk rock, TMK will feature a “headbanging soundtrack and a dive-bar-styled interior”.
