Tantalisingly traditional: This St Julian’s joint is serving up authentic Japanese grub
With Asian cuisine becoming more and more mainstream, finding a spot that serves up traditional Japanese food has become way more challenging than we’d ever expected.
Luckily, Okurama Japanese Cuisine is here to save the day.
Situated at Triq Paceville in St Julian’s, this beloved spot has long stood out from the crowd thanks to its delightful grub, unique décor, and iconic buffet option.
If you’re big on sushi, you’ll be happy to hear that this Okurama joint is serving up all the traditional types of sushi you can think of – we’re talking nigiri, maki, temaki, and sashimi – as well as a couple of contemporary counterparts, like the Alaska Roll and Tokyo Rainbow.
Should you find it difficult to limit yourself to a handful of rolls, make sure to sample Okurama Japanese Cuisine’s platters, offering diners a taste of its vast sushi menu in one plate.
Sushi aside, this restaurant’s food menu is home to a vast range of dishes sure to satisfy any diner.
Start off with one of Okurama’s delectably light soups, before munching away on a couple of tempura delights and small dishes. Move on to the main course and treat your tastebuds to anything from Chicken Katsu Curry and Japanese BBQ Spareribs to Teppanyaki Seafood and Teriyaki Salmon.
There are also plenty of vegetarian options scattered throughout every section of the menu: think Vegetable Spring Rolls, Tofu Steak & Mushrooms, and Miso Soup – to mention a few.
