Best ingredients sourced daily from Japanese fishermen and suppliers
Squid from Hokkaido , grapefruit juice , yellow zuccichimi italian cucumber
Deep fried Yari-Ika (Spear Squid/槍烏賊) from Kyushu is available this season. Marinated in Nanban-zuke (vinegar-dashi based broth), this refreshing appetizer is paired with seasonal Japanese yellow & purple carrots and aiko tomato.
Kimeidai Golden Eye Fish aka Kimeidai Sushi , slight aburi
Kinmedai (金目鯛/Golden Eye Snapper) taste best in aburi. The skin is lightly seared to tenderize and to release its umami flavors from the oils. Very succulent and delicious.
Chutoro, tuna belly, tuna from Boston, more fatty this time of year
Bonito Sashimi is served traditionally with green spring onions. The rich taste of spring onions perfectly complements the flavour of the fish.
Grilled sea perch
Lightly grilled releases the fish oil and the taste and texture is simply heaven.
Magoro , Tuna, from Japan
Aji (鯵/Japanese Horse Mackerel) taste best this season and it pairs well with Chef Nakatani’s time tested signature shari.
Salmon from Hokkaido
Shitakae mushroom , gold fish flower
Fresh King Shiitake and the sweet and juicy Aiko Tomato is available this season. Dressed in house-made tempura sauce, it gives a distinct robust aroma to the dish.
Kamasu (魳/Barracuda) taste best when it is lightly seared or “aburi” style and pairs well with Chef Nakatani’s signature shari (sushi rice).
Enjoy rich flavours from different cuts of Hon-Maguro (Japanese Wild Bluefin Tuna)
Savour the marbling Chūtoro: medium-fatty cut from Premium Hon-Maguro (Japanese Wild Bluefin Tuna). It combines the lighter flavor of an akami with the tender sweetness of an Ootoro.
The Japanese Wild Bluefin Tuna (Hon-Maguro) is one of the most sought after fish in the world. Known for its exceptional flavour and texture.
Egg Plant with sesame sauce
Uni and Ikura Rice bowl, mini rice bowl
