Amazing fusion Peruvian-Japanese
Azabu combines Peruvian Japanese Nikkei flavours with more Tokyo-style dishes in a dining room that’s just as lively. Hidden away out the back, off Maidstone Lane is Roji, Azabu’s stealthy saké and cocktail bar.
Executive Chef Yukio Ozeki is a big fan of Nikkei, the fresh Peruvian Japanese crossover flavours that have grown out of Peru’s huge Japanese community. Yukio’s menu combines Nikkei-influenced dishes and modern Japanese with an emphasis on the fun and the interesting. The large and small plates are made to be shared - don’t be shy.
Azabu is Chef Yukio Ozeki’s happy place. Co-owner and Executive Chef at Azabu, Yukio made his name at Ebisu and Lucky Lucky Dumplings, but really wanted to do his own thing. This is it!
Whether you're after a bit of a nibble or just a casual drink, tucked out the back of Azabu awaits a cosy speakeasy appropriately named Roji (translated - Alleyway). With access via the restaurant or Maidstone St, up the graffiti alleyway, the vibrant space not only has a tempting sake and cocktail list, but there's Pacman, great tunes and the right amount of understated chic.
