Bahrain’s gourmands are in for a treat with the debut of Gyuto, a brand-new Japanese restaurant, recently inaugurated at Al Liwan, Seef Properties’ latest open-air mixed-use development in Hamala.
Building on the success of its sister restaurant, Wakame, at Downtown Dubai, Gyuto offers an innovative dining experience by suffusing a contemporary touch to classic Japanese cuisine, said a statement.
Gyuto’s interiors feature picturesque traditional Japanese murals that “promise to add a distinctive ambiance,” says Gyuto co-owner Alawi Al Braik.
A selection of novel dishes from Gyuto’s menu includes Black Cod & Prawn Dim Sum served with lemongrass, sesame oil and ponzu garlic; Crispy Lobster Bao; Japanese Yellowtail Sashimi served with jalapeño salsa, citrus soy and orange jelly; and Firecracker Roses Maki with salmon roses, chopped spicy salmon and tempura crumb.
Vegetarians haven’t been excluded either, with a special menu comprising the decadent Truffle Miso Mushroom, Mushroom Tempura Hotpot, and five specialty maki dishes, to just name a few.
Desserts have also been given a contemporary Japanese twist, with dishes including Miso Caramel Cheesecake and Chocolate Matcha Fondant.
Al Braik commented: “With Gyuto, our endeavour is to introduce true quality and innovative Japanese fine-dining to Bahrain, and we look forward to offering citizens, residents and tourists a unique Asian hospitality experience that will surely be appreciated by everyone.
“I hope that Gyuto will become as well-liked as Wakame is in Dubai, and it will become a spot where family and friends can bond over their shared gastronomic experience,” he added.
Seef Properties CEO Ahmed Yusuf stated: “We are happy that a restaurant with the pedigree of Gyuto has opened at Al Liwan. The restaurant’s distinctive experience reflects the exceptional features of the project and qualifies it to become one of the Kingdom’s main tourist attractions in the near future.” - TradeArabia News Service
