Japanese fusion culinary hub Origami welcomes diners to its new space in Fashion Avenue, Dubai Mall
Japanese fusion culinary hub, Origami, has been a fixture in Dubai’s contemporary dining scene for over eight years, offering diners a beautiful blend of Japanese and local flavours. Their newest and third branch has opened its doors in Fashion Avenue at Dubai Mall, with a complete makeover from interiors to menu.
Set forth to reinterpret Japanese eating in Dubai, Origami was launched in 2014 to make fresh, quality-grade sushi casually accessible, with their flagship store situated on the top floor of Al Souq Mall in Umm Suqeim 3. Eight years on, their values remain steadfast and the brand retains custom and ritual amid progression, offering a culinary experience housing respected craftsmanship in an immersive retrieval of Japan’s most revered underground sushi bars; unembellished, imperfect and simplistic.
Staying true to the authentic and intimate Japanese dining experience, the venue seats only 40 diners; and boasts striking interiors and a unique seating design that is a take on time-honoured Japanese and Arab dining traditions where groups sit on a carpeted floor. Diners at Origami will feel as if they have been transported to the far East as they set sights on black matted tiles and textured glass partitions.
The establishment’s refreshed menu features new dishes such as Chicken karaage, Salmon in potato chips, Beef katsu, Cauliflower popcorn, Salmon tataki and Unagi and foie gras as part of the small dishes, sashimi and uramaki sections. Dedicating an entire new section to grilled items, Origami also serves sumptuous new additions including Grilled chicken wings, Grilled sea bass with tomato salsa and Prawns tsukune.
