Akabeko: A Bespoke Japanese Yakiniku Experience in Dubai

A Culinary Journey Led by Chef Yosuke Matsuoka

At the helm of Akabeko's culinary journey is the illustrious Head Chef Yosuke Matsuoka.  With over 30 years of experience honing his craft at renowned restaurants worldwide, Chef Yosuke is hailed by Gault&Millau as a top-tier Japanese culinary expert. His dedication and leadership earned his team the prestigious title of Middle East's Best Hotel Restaurant at the World's Culinary Awards 2022.

Indulge in the World's Finest A5 Wagyu

Akabeko prides itself on serving the pinnacle of culinary luxury – world-class Japanese A5 Wagyu beef.  This prestigious beef, known for its exquisite marbling, unmatched tenderness, and melt-in-your-mouth sweetness, is sourced from the finest-bred Japanese cattle.  Its unique rearing process and rigorous grading standards ensure an unparalleled dining experience that sets the gold standard of culinary excellence.

An Authentic Umami Experience

At Akabeko, each cut of A5 Wagyu is masterfully prepared at your table by our expert team, delivering an authentic umami experience that tantalizes the taste buds.  We embrace a nose-to-tail philosophy, honoring every part of the cow, including the often-overlooked 'left behinds.' This approach not only ensures sustainability but also elevates the extraordinary flavors of each dish.
