Japanese cuisine offers an abundance of gastronomical delights with a endless variety of regional and seasonal dishes. With its aesthetic of beautifully presented food and maximum use of fresh, high-quality seasonal ingredients, it’s no wonder that Japanese cuisine is so delicious and so highly prized by people around the world. One such restaurant we found in Lodhi Road main market – Guppy with plenty of Japanese food options. With the minimalist design and most comfortable seating this restaurant brings the best Japanese food to us. The unique flavours packed in the food here is full of umami.
We visited during their Hanami festival and were very interested to try the cuisines from Hanami menu only which is specially curated and has very selected and perfect dishes in it. Hanami is basically Japan’s cherry blossoms festival which is celebrated to enjoy the transient beauty of flowers. This special menu is available all throughout the summers. From their menu we tried the following:
Grilled Asparagus and Rocket Salad: Grilled Asparagus created the robust flavour in the beautiful and vibrant salad bowl.
Kale and Water Chestnut Dumplings : Eaten with chilli soy ponzu sause we loved the flavour and fillings of these dumplings.
Wood Smoked Chicken Wings & Prawn Pirikara : Smoked with cherry blossom wood we loved the crispiness of chicken wings. Prepared in creamy chilli bean sauce Prawn Pirikara are something to die for. A must try here.
Mango & Tuna Roll : Covered with the slices of Alfanso Mango we learned how this sushi is made. Again an amazing delicacy.
Two way Grilled Chicken : We got two flavours in one plating – grilled chicken legs with black pepper sauce and chicken breast with teriyaki sauce. loved both the flavours.
For desserts their Honey Toast is a must try.
If you a non veg lover the their Hanami menu is a must try.
