‘Yuba’ gourmet level Ja­panese cui­sine with a Lo­cal twist now in Crys­tal Tower

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Yuba - the name given to a unique new restau­rant cre­ated by Mo­hammed Bseiso; CEO of Gour­ma­nia in­ter­na­tional. A com­pany spe­cial­ized in bring­ing us some of the most suc­cess­ful restau­rants in Kuwait (such as Fau­chon Paris, Burger & Lob­ster, Ce­real Killer, Sakura, etc).

The newest ad­di­tion to the Gour­ma­nia port­fo­lio is Yuba. A high level Ja­panese gourmet sushi and ro­bata grill bar in­fused with a lo­cal twist of fla­vors and in­gre­di­ents from Kuwait and the re­gion. A truly unique ex­pe­ri­ence awaits its pa­trons as even though we have tens of Ja­panese restau­rants; none have aquar­i­ums with live seafood and none have a culi­nary “sushi tour”; hav­ing the chef take you on a culi­nary jour­ney ex­pe­ri­enc­ing and learn­ing things you never knew about these Ja­panese del­i­ca­cies.

“Qual­ity is the fo­cus of the con­cept” says MB; “I per­son­ally ad­mire Ja­panese cui­sine be­cause of its fo­cus on qual­ity and its sim­plic­ity. How­ever due to high costs or dif­fi­culty in sourc­ing, there are many dishes you never find in Kuwait. This is why I al­ways look for­ward to vis­it­ing Ja­panese restau­rants when I’m abroad, where these items are usu­ally avail­able. A con­cept like Yuba will bring the ex­pe­ri­ences of abroad right to your doorstep.”

Apart from the high qual­ity in­gre­di­ents, Yuba prides it­self in be­ing able to cre­ate a unique bal­ance of flavours be­tween the Ara­bian and the Ja­panese cui­sine in some of its sig­na­ture dishes. You even have the op­tion of hav­ing your sushi and rolls us­ing Ja­panese quzi style rice. “I knew what I wanted as the end re­sult, how­ever I didn’t ex­pect to find the many chal­lenges in try­ing to add the lo­cal flare into the dishes, as keep­ing the in­tegrity of these 2 great cuisines whilst hav­ing them up­lift and com­ple­ment one an­other was quite chal­leng­ing,” added MB.
