Katsuya By Starck Is One Of Dubai’s Hottest New Restaurants, Mamas!

Being a fan of contemporary Japanese cuisine is hardly unique these days. Absolutely adoring the beautiful restaurant area at Jumierah Al Naseem…  also not a shocker. So a Katsuya date night at Jumeirah Al Naseem not only made sense but felt like the only right thing to do!

The Concept and Venue

The concept is Japanese food with a Californian spin as well as a local touch. At Katsuya this simply means fresh, fun and a bit … Jennifer Aniston…you know what I mean.

Katsuya was created by master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and designer Philippe Starck. The interiors are unsurprisingly minimalistic for anyone who knows Starck and is totally geared up for what’s important. Keep your eyes on the plate mamas!

The Food

Let’s get down to business. We started off with some drinks. My husband went for an old-fashioned and I took a back set with a mocktail. Both were very good. Our first dish was ‘Tuna Tacos’. Absolutely delicious, with a side of guacamole (the Californian spin remember?). We combined that with the ‘Seaweed Sunomono’, yum. And there was a ‘Wagyu Beef Gyoza’ special on our night, which was absolutely heavenly. Let’s hope they make that a menu item very soon because I’d hate for you to miss out.

You can’t go Japanese without trying the sushi. We were recommended the ‘Double Double Roll’ and the ‘Hollywood Roll’. Don’t be snobs. Rolls are sushi too. Just jam-packed, tasty, juicy ones ok? Try them!

By the time our mains were served we were pretty stuffed but hey, we decided to devour the Wagyu Ribeye, which was juicy and tender and after that we inhaled the Black Miso Cod. Miso cod is a personal favourite and this one was definitely up there with some of the best I’ve had. Just enough miso to give it that Umami (throwing big words around toda)- flavor without being too salty. Perfection.

What we loved

I would definitely go back… but this place is expensive. Some of the pricing doesn’t quite make sense but hey, what really does in life? If you are on the look out for some really yummy food, great location, excellent drinks and decided it’s on Mother VISA … then go!
