Authentic Japanese Cuisine at Kimura-Ya in Oberoi Hotel Business Bay Dubai
Kimura-Ya is known for its hot pot, “shabu-shabu” feasts — tasty meat, vegetables, and mushrooms served and cooked right on the guests’ tables. The place provides indoor seating as well as private dining areas, plus there’s a full bar available. Yay!
As for the food, let’s get right to it! You can start by sampling their Tsumami (appetizers), such as salted cabbage, marinated tuna, chilled tofu, and sliced octopus wasabi. Don’t forget to try their sushi rolls (e.g. tempura roll, salmon roll, spicy tuna roll) and sashimi (e.g. yellow tail sashimi, octopus sashimi) as well.
We’ve only just begun! Now how about some Yakitori? These are grilled chicken skewers served with different kinds of salt and sauces. Deep-fried Japanese food, a.k.a. “Tempura,” are also on the menu, including shrimp tempura, vegetable tempura, and chicken tempura.
Of course, you shouldn’t miss the Yakiniku (Japanese-style barbecue) offerings, specifically the wagyu (which may be thinly or thickly sliced), salted leek marinated wagyu, and the thickly-sliced tongue (!). Meanwhile, Japanese Ramen fans will definitely enjoy the restaurant’s chicken shoyu ramen, spicy shrimp ramen, miso ramen, and other noodle dishes.
If you’re a rice lover, don’t worry because Kimura-Ya’s menu includes Japanese fried rice, grilled rice ball, tempura rice bowl, and wagyu beef rice bowl, among other favourites. As for dessert, get ready to sample some Amaimono (Japanese sweets), such as black sesame ice cream, matcha ice cream, and the Kimura-Ya parfait. Yum!
Wash it all down with a glass of water, juice, or soft drinks, or enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. A wide selection of alcoholic beverages are also available: red wine, white wine, whiskey, classic cocktails, Japanese cocktails, and of course, the traditional Japanese sake (rice wine).
