Seafood Diet YOTSUBA

MOVES WEST

City Weekend - - Eat & Drink -  Mina Yan

ne of the city’s fa­vorite choices for Ja­panese food is ex­pand­ing out­side of Chaoyang district and into Haid­ian. This month, Yotsuba of­fi­cially opens up in Zhonguan­cun and their new lo­ca­tion is as divine as the oth­ers.

Yotsuba prides it­self on the qual­ity of its in­gre­di­ents as well as the skills of its chefs. And with good rea­son. With di­rect con­nec­tions to the fa­mous Fsuk­iji Fish Mar­ket in Ja­pan and ex­pe­ri­enced men on the ground, Yotsuba is guar­an­teed to de­liver only the best of the best (and we ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery bite of it).

The new Zhonguan­cun lo­ca­tion of­fers the same à la carte menu as the oth­ers, as well as a daily spe­cials menu that’s uniquely its own and a vibe that’s one of a kind.

Renowned amongst food­ies for its qual­ity sashimi, the new Yotsuba of­fers a wide se­lec­tion of top­grade sashimi, be it some live sea urchin (¥200), eight­piece mid fatty tuna (¥350), or five pieces of big spot prawns (¥450). It’s un­de­ni­able; the fresh­ness of the in­gre­di­ents makes a world of a dif­fer­ence es­pe­cially when it comes to sashimi.

OOrder up some sake and a plate of roasted dried ray fins (¥90). While this dish can be found at other restau­rants, the prepa­ra­tion at Yotsuba is a bit dif­fer­ent. The thicker strips of meat ab­sorb more fla­vor and its thick­ness gives it a much chewier tex­ture. We lit­er­ally couldn’t put them down. It’s the per­fect drink­ing snack for a night out.

If you’re in the mood to splurge a bit, try their roasted Ja­panese beef (¥650). The grilled Wagyu beef ar­rives at your table still siz­zling and the sweet smell fills up the restau­rant. We know many places of­ten de­scribe meat as ‘melt in your mouth’, but in this case, it’s ac­tu­ally true. Ev­ery slice of Wagyu beef feels like it’s dis­solv­ing as it hits your tongue.

So for now, food­ies liv­ing in Haid­ian don’t need to travel so far for great Ja­panese food. A quick trip to Zhonguan­cun’s new Yotsuba is enough to sat­isfy all your crav­ings. A big plat­ter of sashimi is a must-have when you

dine at Yotsuba.
