We ordered one of Nomiya's most popular yakitori, the grilled apricots, plums, and dates wrapped in bacon, along with a selection of other yakitori and appetizers. Aside from the aforementioned yakitori, my favorite two dishes, both pictured, were the shumai (shrimp and crab dumplings) and the jellyfish salad. I have yet to try the sushi, though I think Nomiya would be an ideal place to go for a solo sushi dinner, as the restaurant is intimate and comfortable, and the small sushi bar seems perfect for singles or couples. Nomiya's sushi or yakitori would also be good for pre- or post-drinks snacks, should you be inclined toward something other than kebab or currywurst; Nomiya is open until 1:00 AM. I would not, however, recommend Nomiya for large groups. It would simply be too cramped, and most of the tables seat a maximum of 4 (and even then, if you're a tall guy with long legs, you might have a bit of a battle with the table for leg space).
After visiting Nomiya after an absence of a couple of years, I wondered why I don't venture over there more often. There's something about the Right Bank that is rather compelling, and Munich is small enough that crossing the river is rarely more than an extra 5 minutes on any travel itinerary. And yet we rarely do it- we tend to stick to our neighborhoods. I think I may make my goal this winter to spend more time exploring Munich. That's always a worthwhile activity.
Open only for dinner, 6:00 PM to 1:00 AM
