Japanese cuisine has been globally acclaimed for distinct tastes, diversity and flair presentation. Innovative and ingenuine in every stage of cooking, Japanese cuisine often relies heavily on the preparation stage, the freshness of ingredients and varieties of side dishes which act as seasonings for diners to sample and mix as they like.
When it comes to high end dining experience, Kitaohji Ginza Bangkok, the premium Japanese restaurant situated in Thonglor, the heart of Thailand’s metropolitan capital Bangkok, would like to invite every food lover to experience the subtle beauty of meticulously prepared menus which are undoubtedly authentic Japanese. On this occasion, we would like to highlight one aspect that Japanese cuisine is well known for, that is: premium menus from the sea of Japan.
To the Sea of Delectability: Taste the Delicacies from Japan at Kitaohji, the Premium Japanese Restaurant
As it is well known, Japanese cuisine has a reputation for its own style of seafood for many reasons. Japan is an island nation with a long history of fishing, so the country has access to a wide variety of fresh seafood.
And that Japanese cuisine also places a strong emphasis on the use of high-quality, fresh ingredients, which in turn has contributed to the high quality of Japanese seafood that food lovers from around the world are fond of.
The important factor that contributes to the exquisiteness of Japanese seafood is the extensiveness of techniques utilized in preparing food in the Japanese tradition of cooking. The wide range of technicality in Japanese cuisine has made knowledge and technical prowess from practitioners in the tradition mandatory. This is the reason why one could say that to have fine cooked Japanese food is comparable to having experienced fine craftsmanship first hand.

In this part, Kitaohji Ginza Bangkok would like to present special menus with seasonal ingredients freshly and selectively imported from Japan as an invitation to every food lover to visit and experience premium Japanese cuisine at our restaurant. These samplings might hopefully sooth and stir your appetite and sense of adventuring.
Sakura Shrimp Donabe Gohan
Sakura Shrimp is named so for its coloring that resembles the world famous cherry blossoms’ (or ‘Sakura’) pastel pink on their petals that shine beautifully every year in Spring. Sakura Shrimp is also caught in the same season in Suruga Bay, Shizuoka Prefecture. The coloring factor of this type of shrimp made people name them the ‘sea jewelry’, which in turn reflects how much prices it is sought after.
Sakura Shrimp that were caught have to be prepared in many steps before export, i.e. dried in the sun to increase aroma, taste and savoriness. In this special menu at Kitaohji Ginza Bangkok, the premium Japanese restaurant, Sakura Shrimp is cooked in the specially prepared broth with rice, accentuating its aroma and sweetness to serve with other seasonal dishes.
Hotaru Ika Firefly Squid
The world famous squid, Hotaru Ika, Firefly (‘Hotaru’) Squid (‘Ika’), was named so because of their wee size and bioluminescent light production that they emit from photophores, making them resemble the fireflies of the ocean.
