Dokodemo now serving Japanese street food on 4th Street

Dokodemo, serving "fast casual Japanese street food," opened this week at 89 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

Here's more on the place via the restaurant's website:

Founders Shin Takagi and Kazu Kamehara bring over thirty years of experience from Japan's legendary food culture straight into the heart of New York City.

After opening more than ninety locations throughout Japan, DokoDemo is their first restaurant in the United States.

Dokodemo's listed hours of operation are 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday; until 9:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Here's a look at one of their dishes...

Takoyaki with octopus, shrimp, pork, or beef.

The Dokodemo space was part of Cucina di Pesce at 87 E. Fourth St. As we reported in May 2016, Cucina di Pesce gave up this room next door at No. 89, which belonged to a different landlord. Cucina di Pesce remains open ...

"Tako" = octopus.

"Takoyaki with octopus" = octopus balls with octopus.

And after this point, we escape the bounds of rational thought.

Octopus are extremely intelligent, shy creatures. No one should be eating them.
