East Japanese Restaurant
Say sushi to a Jamaican, and you may get a raised eyebrow or a wrinkled nose. While sushi is not a popular food in Jamaica, it is rapidly becoming a favourite for many jamaicans. Jamaicans are always eager to try new things and this has contributed to the success of East Japanese Restaurant. And they have created a generous following of sushi lovers, that just can’t seem to get enough.
You won’t have to worry about the taste however, as the sushi is served with wasabi (horse radish) which adds a peppery taste as well as soya sauce to add flavour. As expressed by one of their regular lunch goers, who’s been dining there for more than a year,“Don’;t knock it until you’ve tried it”.
The extensive menu also features items such as steak - any style, shrimp tempura, grilled chicken breast stuffed with cheese and herbs. There is a teriyaki chicken.
Eating at East Japanese is not just about having a meal, it is a whole experience. If you sit at the sushi bar, you can have your meal prepared right there in front of you. Probably the best part of the package is getting to watch the intriguing Sushi Master, Takahashi at work. You’ll also get to experience the warmth and welcome from the entire staff of East Japanese, who treat their guests as if they are the only ones there.
Stepping into East Japanese is like stepping into a new world. The oriental themed restaurant captures every essence of Asia. Not to worry, unlike most Japanese restaurants you don’t have to remove your shoes.
If you haven’t quite mastered the use of chopsticks then, there is the traditional knife and fork, so you don’t have to worry about your food flying from your plate.
