A little corner of Tokyo in Dubai

 Recently had Japanese cuisine, Teppanyaki style, with SB (secret boss), colleagues, etc. at NADA MAN, Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore... I didn't take any photos, but the place looked more tasteful than pretentious. I have a strong gut feel that if SB wasn't interrupting the chef every 3 minutes, and giving violent reactions about his way of cooking, the food could have turned out impeccable. Among other factors, everyone else in my peripherals seemed to be enjoying, and the restaurant, built in 1984, has been fully booked for three consecutive nights. 

Meanwhile, in United Arab Emirates, if you want privacy and fancy Teppanyaki tables with tableside cooking by your own entertaining chef, a recommendable place would be Tokyo@TheTowers... Now, pacing my crave as I try to recall a step by step summary of an awesome dining experience.


A cup of chilled sake, before anything else
Appetizer in a bowl of crabs, seaweed, and more
Maldivian Tuna Tataki* (Absolutely loved this...)
Apple based Australian Wagyu Beef Shabu-Shabu Salad with Sambal Sauce (Superb!)

Then, V and I had gyoza (chicken dumpling) with another dish while watching the undeniably skillful Chef Aijiro transform this Canadian Lobster into something great.


I intently sat back in anticipation as the champignons, zucchini, shitake mushrooms, onion... were being layered.. while the Japanese salmon and French scallops were marinating in miso butter. And, as most good things, these were worth the wait.

 
Missing out on proper details as I don't have the exact menu, but one thing I know about this beef... it lived on daily massages and finest feed. No wonder it tasted amazing. Just the right meal finale, on a bed of (my current favorite mushrooms) Enoki / Enokitake cooked to an unforgettable texture...
  
Beautiful eve --food and companion wise. Also, I admire the minimalism and colonial vibe of the decor... plus everything about the flamed fruit dessert! I hope this restaurant's still around once I'm back in Dubai.

Location: Upper Level, The Boulevard, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai, UAE

 Saké Trivia: It's not a shot so don't down it in one! As you're drinking, turn slightly away from anyone who's of higher status. If you are drinking with someone very high in status, it would not be inappropriate to completely turn away from them before drinking.

*Tataki ("pounded" or "hit into pieces"), a manner of preparing fish or meat in Japanese cuisine. The meat or fish is seared very briefly over a hot flame or pan, briefly marinated in vinegar, sliced thinly and seasoned with ginger (which is ground or pounded into a paste, hence the name).
