New HK restaurant openings helmed by top world chefs

The Araki

Having achieved three Michelin stars first in Tokyo and then again in London, Chef Mitsuhiro Araki is the only Japanese chef in the world with this incredible distinction. After relocating his eponymous restaurant from Tokyo to London in 2014, the legendary chef once again brings his unique style of Edomae sushi to another metropolis. His new Hong Kong branch with only 12-covers is located at House 1881 Heritage Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui and opened last month.

Chef Araki, is renowned for top-notch tuna. Working with the best suppliers such as Ishiji, one of Japan’s most famous tuna wholesalers which only works with the best restaurants in Japan and overseas, Araki sources the best part of the tuna, for example, the fibrous part closest to the head which is difficult to cut but has the best cross-section of the different cuts of tuna. The restaurant only serves 20 pieces daily.

As an advocate of sustainability, Chef Araki is offering top-tier sushi made from both Japanese and non-Japanese fish and also decadent and surprising Chinese ingredients. Every morning he and his team visit local fishermen personally to look for the fresh catch of the day. The same approach is found at his restaurant in London, where he made waves by using European ingredients such as salmon, Cornish squid, and langoustine. Chef Araki has also been experimenting with Chinese ingredients, such as dried abalone, fish maw and bird’s nest in the daily changing omakase menu.
