If you go heart-eyes every time someone mentions Japanese food, you’ve got to get a table at Mikuni
Sure, a fabulous meal plated like a piece of art is an enticing offer. But a mouth-watering dinner and a show… who can say no to that? It’s easy to see why everyone’s catching this culinary train to Japan via Mikuni, a multi-concept dining experience that’s a treat for the senses and fodder for your Instagram followers.
Grab a chair at this 150-seat Japanese restaurant and watch them bring their A-game with sushi, teppanyaki, and robatayaki live stations. Of course, the theatrics are entertaining but these exquisite dishes hit all the right spots.
There’s something about sushi
Mikuni translates to three kingdoms in Japanese and it makes perfect sense in this fine dining restaurant that’s sectioned by three live stations. If you choose to sit at the sushi station, expect rolls that blend premium ingredients with contemporary touches. Do yourself a favour and order up Jou sashimi – a selection of four seasonal sashimi that’s flown down from Tokyo’s iconic Tsukiji Market.
Give it up for teppanyaki
There’s never a dull moment when there’s teppanyaki involved. Savour fresh seafood and prime cuts paired with secret sauces and marinades that will take things to the next level. You can’t leave without trying the melt-in-your-mouth slow-cooked Miyazaki Wagyu short rib, live lobster, Norwegian king salmon, wild cod and foie gras, the mother-of-all cheat day foods.
Ride the robatayaki wave
Backstory… Robatayaki is inspired by Japanese grilling style often used by fishermen and involved four simple things – the freshest catch, a charcoal fire, an oar for a pan and a few good friends. At Mikuni, this dynamic station is fun to watch and savour. Served on a wooden paddle as an ode to the fisherfolk is a smorgasbord of succulent meat. We’re talking Miyazaki Wagyu, live Boston lobsters, Kurobuta pork belly as well as some fresh veggies like asparagus, kabocha pumpkin, Hokkaido sweet corn. Grilled to perfection, everything is served with three special sauces for a generous dip and drizzle.
