Asuka Japanese Dining
AT JW MARRIOTT HOTEL JAKARTA
Diners in Jakarta desiring sublime Japanese gastronomy and traditional ways flock to Asuka Japanese Dining at JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta. Exuding classic Japanese style with its light wood décor and a long sushi bar alongside the busy chefs, Asuka is renowned for, among other things, its exquisite sushi. Executive Japanese Chef Nishiura Osamu and Sushi Chef Takasugi Harumitsu not only have a special link with excellent vendors at Tsukiji market to be sure of the highest quality fish, they also handmake the sauce for the sushi rice, which is fermented for two to thee months before being deemed suitable. In fact, all the sauces in Asuka Japanese Dining are made in house the traditional way. Asuka's chefs make the most of their Tsujiki vendor to access seasonal seafood at the very peak of its freshness and diners benefit with delights like iwagaki – summer oysters with a mere fleeting season, kinki, tachiuo, as well as uni, eel, tuna belly and many other delights. Meat lovers are also well catered to here with beautifully marbled grade 5 Kumamoto beef used to pamper the taste buds.
While there is plenty of choice on the à la carte menu, the signature omakase menu allows diners the benefit of relaxing and allowing the talented chefs to let their imaginations run free as they create and serve a multi-course tasting menu derived from the freshest seasonal ingredients, utilising a variety of cooking techniques to create a unique experience every time.
