As part of the commitment to upgrade its dining venues this year, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali is delighted to unveil its new look Hamabe with a revitalized Japanese culinary concept. This re-launch has been timed to coincide with the festive season, which will see the resort welcome guests from around the world and satisfy their needs with even more versatile dining options.
Hamabe has been given an aesthetic facelift with a contemporary design inspired by the serenity of a traditional Japanese garden. A new entrance with an eye-catching feature wall creates a distinct sense of arrival where guests are personally greeted by a costumed hostess. There are additional table settings and a signature robata grill joins the existing teppanyaki counter.
The menu at Hamabe has been refreshed to offer guests a more defined Japanese dining experience. There is a greater emphasis on authenticity through the use of high-quality ingredients and food preparation techniques. The implementation of a modern serving style encourages sharing so that everyone can sample all the different things on offer.
Hamabe’s famous teppanyaki counter still remains a highlight at the restaurant where guests are treated to the theatrical performance of dishes being cooked before their very eyes. The sushi and sashimi counter also draws attention to the artistic precision and knife skills of Hamabe’s well-trained culinary team.
Exclusive to the new Hamabe is a robata grill that introduces guests to a traditional cooking method from the Sendai region in northern Japan. It originated from local fishermen gathering around a communal source of heat on board their boats to cook food and stay warm whilst out at sea.
Similar to a barbecue, robatayaki is where food is slow-cooked over hot coals and served on wooden paddles. This technique is suitable for various meats, seafood and vegetables as it enables natural flavor to be retained.
“Hamabe has long been a favorite dining outlet at the resort serving healthy Japanese cuisine that complements Westin’s wellness philosophy. However, it was simply time for a change and we decided to explore some of the other cooking alternatives that Japan has to offer. Robatayaki is not only delicious; it brings likeminded people together over good food and social conversation. It is a welcome addition that promises guests a well-rounded dining experience at Hamabe,” says Mr. Bipan Kapur, Managing Director of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
Hamabe is open daily for dinner only from 5.30 pm onwards with stylish seating in full air-conditioned comfort for up to 64 guests. A special opening promotion is available for table reservations made in advance with a generous 10% discount on all Hamabe Kaiseki set menu. This offer is valid for a limited time only from 1st to 19th December 2015. Visitwww.westinnusaduabali.com for more details.
