The Japan External Trade Organization and the Consul General of Japan in Los Angeles are partnering with 10 Phoenix restaurants to host the Taste of Japan: Specialty Seafood & Sake Series.
From Friday, Feb. 16 to Friday, March 1, each restaurant will create and serve unique, limited-time dishes highlighting Japanese seafood, specifically the Hokkaido scallop.
Residents can visit the following restaurants to experience the Taste of Japan:
Each restaurant will put its unique spin on the scallop; for example, Hana Japanese Eatery is offering the scallop dusted with potato starch, flash fried and topped with soy vinegar vegetables and ao nori while Kuka Sushi and Izakaya will offer a raw scallop served with basil olive oil, pink salt and yuzu sherbet.
"We are also committed to further strengthening the relationship between Japan and Arizona in the area of food as well as economic and cultural people-to-people ties," Kenko Sone, Consul General of Japan in Los Angeles, shared in a press release. "I hope Arizonans will take this opportunity to enjoy the marriage of Japanese seafood and sake."
