Akabeko, Dubai's latest culinary gem, proudly announces the grand opening of its doors in West Beach, Palm Jumeirah. Akabeko introduces a new and exciting concept to the vibrant culinary scene, bringing the first Japanese A5 Wagyu focused “Yakiniku” experience to the city.

What is Yakiniku you ask? In the simplest terms, it is a popular Japanese dining experience that involves grilling meat over a tabletop stove. At Akabeko, this classic practice is reimagined and elevated with a focus on a journey through different cuts of Japanese Wagyu beef, delivering an unparalleled dining experience. With their nose to tail concept, Akabeko makes a strong statement about their commitment to the sustainable dining movement by presenting a menu that respects and honours the product, including all the "left behinds" and "secondaries".

Guests are invited to be taken on a culinary journey, as their expert service team guides them through the different cuts, ensuring each bite is cooked to perfection.

Enjoy up to 12 different Japanese Wagyu cuts that are not served anywhere else or let our chef decide with the Yakiniku Moriawase platter. Other signature dishes included the Supreme Wag-Yukke, a spicy tartar garnished with scallops, uni, ikura and the decadent Akabeko Donburi with prime Wagyu steak, uni, caviar, covered in truffle. Finish off your meal with Akabeko’s signature truffle ice cream.

The restaurant's location in West Beach ensures accessibility and a prime spot for residents and visitors alike to enjoy this unique dining experience. Akabeko's interior is a visual feast in itself, boasting a refined, minimalist, and natural aesthetic that creates an inviting atmosphere with nods to clean, Japanese design.

The comfortable booths provide a cosy setting for friends and family to gather around the grill, promising a fun and engaging cooking experience with socialising at the core. Top of the line smokeless grills imported from Japan ensure a smoke and grease free environment, allowing guests to enjoy their night without interruption.

Solo diners can enjoy a seat at the kitchen bar, where they can watch their meals served up by Executive Chef Yosuke Matsuoka and his team.

"At Akabeko, we are thrilled to introduce Dubai to a dining experience that combines the rich culture of Yakiniku with the beauty of Japanese Wagyu beef," said Hanabi Foods Group. "Our aim is to create not just a meal but a memorable and interactive culinary journey for our guests. We believe that Akabeko will become a new destination to learn about a new facet of Japanese cuisine beyond the current offering."

Akabeko Dubai's commitment to excellence extends beyond its culinary offerings. With attentive service and a commitment to providing an unforgettable experience, Akabeko sets itself apart as a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts and social gatherings.
