Best Japanese Restaurants in Melaka

Written by Updated ago

Japanese cuisine is as intriguing and beautiful as the Land of the Rising Sun itself. With an emphasis on preserving the natural flavours of the ingredients, Japanese cuisine is renowned for its delicate-tasting food. Equally important is the presentation. It’s not uncommon to see elaborately arranged kaiseki meals on a tray, or a serving of glistening sashimi draped over thin strands of shredded radish, teasing both the eye and appetite with its marvellous arrangement and artful play of colours. A culture which places importance on the coming and going of the seasons, the seasonality of ingredients is also a prominent feature of this type of cuisine with unagi being popular in summer and nabemono eaten in the dreary winter months. Whatever the season it may be, there’s never a wrong season for Japanese food as we present to you a list of the best Japanese restaurants in Melaka.
