Japanese cuisine is quite popular in Lebanon and this is not surprising.
With their appreciation of gourmet food and their since-ever tendency to explore the world and its variety of cultures, the Lebanese have grown a strong affinity to Japanese cuisine. And that is seen in how successful these restaurants have been across the country.
Most people think of sushi when Japanese cuisine is mentioned, however, it hardly represents this delicious far-eastern cuisine that provides a large variety of traditional dishes.
So, as much as we love Sushi, it is worth trying some traditional dishes that are popular in Japan like the savory Okonomiyaki pancake, and the Shabu-Shabu meat and vegetables served with dipping sauce.
Dishes also worth savoring are the Yakitori grilled chicken and scallion skewers glazed in sauce, and the Gyudon bowl of rice topped with beef and onion cooked in a mildly sweet sauce.
In any case, and whatever your preferences, here are some of the Japanese restaurants in Lebanon serving this delicious cuisine.
Some even offer a zen ambiance and unique experience that take you far to this ancient East-Asian country of rich culture, and which cuisine the Lebanese have gladly adopted.
