13 Japanese restaurants in Lebanon for delicious sushi and more
Japanese cuisine is very popular in Lebanon and it is not surprising.
With their appreciation of gastronomy and their long-standing tendency to explore the world and its variety of cultures, the Lebanese have developed a strong affinity with Japanese cuisine. And it shows in the success of these restaurants across the country.
Most people think of sushi when Japanese cuisine is mentioned, however, it hardly represents that delicious Far Eastern cuisine which offers a wide variety of traditional dishes.
So, even though we love sushi, it is worth trying some traditional dishes popular in Japan like the tasty Okonomiyaki pancake and Shabu-Shabu meat and veg served with dipping sauce.
Also worth savoring are the grilled chicken and glazed Yakitori green onion skewers in sauce, and the bowl of Gyudon rice topped with beef and onions cooked in a slightly sweet sauce.
Either way, and whatever your preferences, here are some of the Japanese restaurants in Lebanon serving this delicious cuisine.
Some even offer a Zen atmosphere and a unique experience that takes you far to this ancient East Asian country with a rich culture and whose cuisine the Lebanese have readily adopted.
