Located in Al Yarmouk, the menu includes ceviche, sushi and grilled dishes.
Fans of Nikkei cuisine will be excited to hear about a new restaurant in Al Khobar. Aszu blends together flavours from Japan and Peru, and has opened in Al Yarmouk.
Aszu refers to a sweet drink made from grapes, and the original word means dry in Hungarian. Aszu’s concept is great for sharing, and covers small to large plates. The menu spans salad Nikkei, ceviche, Nikkei starters, sushi, grill, arroz and rice, and desserts. The drinks menu includes soft drinks and mocktails. The options include Chilli Tropical, Lime Mojito, and Mango Ginger Fizz.
The sushi bar includes Beef Wagyu Nigiri, Salmon Nigiri, and Tori Sesame Andes Roll. The grilled dishes include Mar de Andes Sea Bass with mountain herbs, Miso-Marinated Pacific Black Cod, and Nikkei Rib Eye Fusion with wasabi-infused mashed potato. The salads range from the ASZU Kai Salad to the Nikkei Tori Goma Salad. The desserts range from a Panna Cotta to Pastel.
Aszu in Al Khobar is a contemporary and classy space. The dark neutral tones span browns to greys with gold accents, and include patterned motifs across the bar and banquettes. Sink into one of the soft sofas with cushions, or sit by the counter and watch the team at work.
Al Khobar is welcoming a range of restaurants. Hamaya has also opened in the Eastern Province, and serves Nikkei cuisine.
Aszu in Al Khobar is open daily from 6pm to midnight.
