If you thought Japanese food was all about sushi and sashimi, a visit to Watatsumi Restaurant, LeMéridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina will introduce your palate to exquisite exotic-sounding delicacies such as umeboshi lamb, scampi tempura and kushiyaki. Staying true to its roots, the atmosphere is laid-back and reminiscent of the traditional Izakaya dining style. On Fridays, leave it to the chef, sit back and enjoy the Omakase Brunch. With tasteful interiors and food that is artistically presented with great finesse, you’re in for a visual feast as well. For reservations call 04 399 3373 or visit www.watatsumi.ae.
