Authentic Japanese at Yoshino

Yoshino Brings An Authentic Japanese Experience For The Holidays

In recent years Japanese cuisine has become increasingly popular. In Saigon, Vietnam’s busiest city, there are many high-quality Japanese restaurants and Yoshino is one of the best places you can visit in Saigon for authentic Japanese cuisine. The restaurant is named after the famous place Yoshino (吉野), an ancient town in Japan, and its main mission is to provide exceptional service and authentic Japanese dishes. “We try to make Yoshino the ideal venue for authentic sushi, sashimi and nabe addicts,“ says Chef Choi.

Yoshino will enchant you with its delicate traditional “omakase” set dinner, together with an extensive a la carte menu. The restaurant also features a variety of fresh seasonal fish and Wagyu beef imported weekly from Japan. The dishes are based on authentic Japanese recipes with the freshest and finest seafood and ingredients. You can witness how the chefs create your dishes. Each season has characteristics that are deeply rooted in foods, and the seasonal dishes at Yoshino are a unique feature associated with cultural traditions. Offering business executives the ideal Japanese lunch option is Yoshino’s Lunch Kaisaki set menus, which include an 8-course option featuring Chef ’s choice of appetizer, soup, sashimi, fish, beef, sushi, and udon or soba (from VND880,000++/set). For those who crave for Teishoku experience, they can enjoy a sumptuous 20-option menu priced from VND270,000++. Crafted to highlight the authentic flavors of Japanese Izakaya, Yoshino’s a la carte menu showcases a robust choice of Japanese classics.

Sumptous delicacy dished

Dining at Yoshino is as close as it comes in Saigon to a full-spectrum restaurant experience in Japan. With a beauty cherry blossom painting on the pagoda-like ceiling, cleverly reflected in black marble flooring or the large mirror over the sushi counter, reflections of food and tables meet the eye everywhere you look—creating a sense of theatrics. Worthy of a special mention is the spaciousness, with a capacity of 100 guests: one Western- style private room and five Japanese- style private rooms (Horigotatsu style) with traditional reed mats—it is here that dining encompasses both food and surroundings to become a complete cultural experience.

Yoshino’s sake menu runs deep—at least a dozen choices, from home to premium sakes (Daiginjo), from sakes with pear or lemony flavors to earthier ones that evoke straw or mushrooms. They can be served chilled or heated, allowing their subtler flavors to emerge—servers can be your guides here, so don’t be shy asking for advice. Or bypass sake altogether for shochu or go for local wine and beer. Rather than accents to a meal here, these drinks can serve as stewards that open the palate to an eclectic lineup of Japanese small plates, as well as raw fish cut like jewels by our chefs.

This festive December, Yoshino restaurant will present a very authentic menu for Christmas Days only two days December 24 & 31, 2018. Christmas Eve Kaiseki Dinner includes 8 courses and a glass of sparkling sake (VND2,150,000++/ person). Especially for New Year’s Eve, the best of tradition is Osechi, a traditional New Year’s cuisine. Osechi is not easily available at Yoshino because it’s eaten only on several days beginning on New Year’s Day. The Traditional New Year Celebration set lunch & Matsu Sake is priced at VND1,300,000++/ person, and the Traditional New Year Celebration set dinner & Matsu Sake is priced at VND1,700,000++/ person.
