New Japan Inspired Culinary at Aman Hotels

News Aman Hotels and Resorts, a Singapore-based hotelier, has launched a new culinary concept named Nama, which continues traditions of Japanese cuisine.

The name Nama actually comes from Aman written in reverse. At the same time, in Japanese “nama” means “raw” and that also unleashes struggle of Aman to update its gastronomic offers and add more Japan inspired experiences. After more than a year of development, the first Nama is scheduled to be added to Amanpuri, the company’s hotel in Phuket. Within a year, Nama will debut at all hotels and resorts by Aman, and in each of them the menu will be slightly adjusted in accordance with locally produced ingredients.

Fresh and raw dishes, as well as classic Japanese delicacies, require ingredients of premium quality. According to Aman, they will import from Japan markets such as the famous Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo and will also purchase daily catches of local fishermen. The menu of Nama includes sushi, sashimi, nigiri sushi and some delicacies as Kobe Wagyu and Kobe Gyu steaks. The meat will be grilled directly on the tables and will be served together with Moshio mineral salt.

In order to create the atmosphere of minimalism and elegance, which are parts of the Japanese concept of beauty, restaurants’ design and staff uniforms will be made in a simple elegant manner in mostly neutral shades. The serving requires a separate mention. Special tableware was commissioned particularly for Nama. It includes shigaraki ware with special glazing, the recipe of which was developed in the 17th century, and oribe tableware that was developed in Japan yet in the 16th century.

Apart from the Phuket hotel, Nama will be soon available at Amanpulo hotel in the Philippines and Amanjena hotel in Morocco.
