I had so much fun checking out Pabu, a recently opened, Izakaya-Style Japanese Restaurant in Millennium Tower in Downtown Boston this weekend. Their menu is filled with delicious small plates, hot pot, steaks, sushi, and so much more. I thought everything was incredible — possibly one of my favorite dinners of the year! My friend and I decided to check it out before heading to Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker at the Boston Opera House right down the street.
We started with Pabu’s incredible 'Happy Spoon' Oyster, a spoonful of an oyster topped with uni, ikura, tobiko, and ponzu crème fraîche.

We paired this with one of Pabu’s delicious cocktails, their “Lip My Stockings,” a delicious lychee cocktail served in a can over crushed ice and garnished with lychee.

Then, some Ahi Tuna Poke and Pabu’s House-Made Tofu, which was an incredibly beautiful dish.

Lastly for small plates, we tried and loved the House-Made Pork Gyoza.

Then, for sushi, we loved the Rainbow roll and the Spider Roll, a roll of soft shell crab, kaiware, tobiko, and spicy mayo.
Then an incredibly impressive dish of some of Pabu’s best fish — their Bluefin Fatty Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, King Salmon, Fresh Scallop, and more.
What an incredible meal — we were certainly filled up before the show, but I was so sad we didn’t have time for dessert. I had seen this incredibly impressive Mochi Sundae on Instagram that I had been dying to try. Unfortunately, we just didn’t have time before getting to the Nutcracker. That just means I’ll have to go back soon!
Check out Pabu’s menus here. They’re located at 3 Franklin Street in Downtown Boston. Perfect for a pre-show dinner, a special occasion, or any time you're in the mood for an incredibly fresh and delicious Japanese food.
