Seafood Diet YOTSUBA
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.
