Valletta will soon be welcoming a new eatery – Komaki Japanese Tapas & Whiskey Bar – and its menu’s going to be a little different, to say the least.

This spot is the brainchild of a very familiar face in the local foodie scene - Chef Daniel – the man behind Burgers Ink, and the recently-opened Waygu Bar & Kitchen.

Chef Daniel’s latest project is set to give patrons a taste of some unique Japanese delicacies and drinks; so get ready to indulge in some top-tier gin, whiskey, and cocktails.

So, what's on the menu?

If you’re an adventurous eater and down to trying new things, then Komaki’s dessert menu is the place for you!

One of the eatery’s most unique dishes is the ‘Scorpion Fest’ dessert, which is garnished with an actual scorpion.

If that makes your skin crawl, then best stay away, as some of their dishes even contain ants…
