Japanese BBQ restaurant Akabeko is opening in Dubai

The yakiniku concept is coming to Palm West Beach.

Dubai is home to a range of cuisines from around the world. Now, it is set to welcome the Japanese restaurant. Akabeko. Scheduled to open on Palm West Beach in May, here’s what you need to know.

In Japanese, akabeko means red cow and refers to a legendary animal in the Aizu region. The legend inspired a popular children’s toy. Now, the cow makes up Akabeko in Dubai’s brand logo.

Akabeko in Dubai will be a nose-to-tail dining concept. The approach ensures that every edible part of the animal is prepared and consumed. While the menu has not yet been unveiled, we know that it will serve premium Wagyu meat.

Akabeko in Dubai will specialise in a yakiniku experience, which translates to grilled meat dishes. The phrase refers to a barbecue and the cooking of bite-size meats over flames of wood charcoal. And, if you want to know what to expect, the site shows meat being cooked on a hot fire.
