  • Nikkei in Manila Unveils New Hamachi Offerings
  • Great news to all sushi and sashimi lovers out there! Nikkei is bringing Japan’s famous yellowtail fish to their branches for the first time by introducing their newest dishes featuring the hamachi

    The fish in the spotlight is the hamachi, also known as buri in Japan. It is a yellowtail fish that is commonly used for sashimi and sushi because of its consistent and high-quality taste.

    It used to be available only during the winter season but because of artificial seedling technology in Japan, hamachi can now be enjoyed in all seasons.

    Now, you have the chance to taste the goodness of hamachi as Nikkei finally unravels their new Hamachi menu, and we were lucky enough to sample these special dishes prepared by Executive Chef Richie Buenaventura himself.

    For those who seldom eat raw sashimi, Nikkei’s Hamachi Sashimi is here to change your mind. This dish is made from the loin part of the hamachi that has a rich, fresh, and buttery flavor.

    Next in the menu is the Hamachi Aburi Nigiri. This sushi is made from the belly part of the fish cooked the aburi style using a blowtorch, making the natural fish oils come out and add flavor.

    Another sashimi is the Hamachi Carpaccio or known as tiradito in Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. It is made from thin slices of the fish’s chutoro or the meat between the loin and the belly.

    Just one look at this dish, and you’ll be amazed by the clean contrast of each slice showing the amount of fat with a portion of the loin.

    Last but not least is the Hamachi Kama, a grilled teriyaki made from almost everything you can get from the hamachi like the fish stock, the head, and of course the collar, which is the most flavorful part of the fish. It is served with cilantro salad on the side.

    If you want to sample all hamachi dishes in one plate, they are also serving the Hamachi Set complete with all four hamachi dishes good for two and four persons.
