Pop-Up Pick: eat fried-ramen sandwiches and teriyaki pie on Dundas West
Looking for a different kind of midweek dinner plan? Well, here’s an option: this evening, from 7 p.m. onwards, roaming Japanese restaurant Imanishi will be popping up at Churchill, the Dundas West cocktail bar known for letting rootless food businesses co-opt its kitchen. Imanishi specializes in Japanese-American snacks, mostly of the greasy-fast-food variety. Tonight’s short menu, priced between $4 and $8, includes soy-and-sesame fried chicken, teriyaki pie and something called a “yakisoba dog,” which basically sounds like a fried-ramen sandwich. If you’re tied up tonight, don’t despair: Imanishi’s Churchill dinners appear to be a regular arrangement (check for updates on their Instagram feed).
Tues., Sept. 2, Churchill, 1212 Dundas St. W., @imanishi_japanese_kitchen
