At Aoi, we specialize in Washoku, a traditional Japanese cuisine registered under UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage since 2013. Our award-winning chefs from Japan prepare each dish using the finest culinary techniques and feature only fresh, natural and seasonal ingredients.
Japanese cuisine oftentimes uses seafood-based flavorings such as dashi stock even in their vegetable dishes. Our menu, on the other hand, is rooted in Shojin cuisine, a genuine vegetarian cooking originating from Zen Buddhism. This distinction allows us to provide our guests with a diverse range of true vegetarian options.
Our mission is to support a healthy lifestyle for our guests and allow them to experience a large variety of flavors through our unique culinary creations. This is made possible by emphasizing the use of local, organic and sustainable ingredients to accentuate the authenticity and health benefits of Japanese cuisine.
