Japan in the Heart of Warsaw

Ginza is one of the most expensive districts in Tokyo. It has elegant shops, department stores, boutiques, chic restaurants and cafes. It is a popular meeting spot for both city residents and tourists. But now you no longer need to travel that far to experience the atmosphere of modern-day Tokyo. Downtown Warsaw has its own Ginza-a bona fide Japanese sushi bar.

The eatery is located at Warsaw's Hilton Hotel, which lends it an air of prestige. The establishment's black walls and furniture contrast well with the classy gray and red interior.

Japanese cuisine is believed to be the healthiest in the world. It is well balanced and based on natural ingredients. Its staples are rice, fish, seafood, algae, vegetables, and soy products such as tofu and miso. Japanese cuisine, virtually devoid of seasonings, is famous for its minimalist dishes and artful arrangements, where no ingredient obscures another.

Ginza offers Japanese cuisine in its minimalist form. The flavor of the rice prepared at the restaurant is slightly sour and distinctive. The menu also features a wide array of hot dishes not available anywhere else in the Polish capital.

Chef Matayoshi Haragucchi is ready to prepare sushi not on the menu on request, suggesting new, surprising food combinations.

Patrons can choose to go for the grilled duck in teriyaki sauce (kamo no teriyaki), kobe beef (kobe - gyu sukini), kobe beef sirloin steak (kobe - gyu steki), swordfish stewed in miso sauce (kajiki no miso - niginza bomb), or special maki with fish, seafood and vegetables. Ginza is the only restaurant in Warsaw that offers a sushi brunch menu with dishes also for children, available on Saturdays and Sundays, from noon to 4 p.m. The restaurant offers an attractive lunch menu on weekdays from noon to 4 p.m., where you can find sushi for zl.40, maki for zl.38, sushi sashimi for zl.50, and lunch of the day for zl.35.

Patrons can order dinner combined with a sushi-making demonstration and mini-course. As opposed to Tokyo, Warsaw's Ginza has quite affordable prices. A typical lunch here costs only zl.40, dessert included.

Ginza Japanese Restaurant, Hilton Hotel, 63 Grzybowska St., 00-844 Warsaw
