Nobu at One&Only Cape Town introduces new Vegan and Vegetarian ‘Omakase’ Menus
The number of people adopting plant-based diets continues to rise steadily year on year. This, in response to emerging research on the benefits it may have for one’s health as well as for the environment. With the aim of catering to this emerging trend, Nobu Cape Town has introduced exciting new vegan and vegetarian offerings to their repertoire. The two new ‘Omakase’ set-menus elevate plant-based ingredients to new heights and are comprised of six dishes each, crafted with the intention of giving diners some delicious meat-free alternatives to the existing signature Omakase menu. ‘Omakase’, meaning ‘Chef’s choice’ in Japanese, offers a menu ‘from the heart’ and resembles a tasting-style menu designed to impress guests with a creative and curated selection of dishes reflective of Nobu’s exceptional Japanese cuisine with Peruvian influence.
The Vegetarian Omakase provides diners with an authentic Nobu experience, crafted largely from plants, with the inclusion of dairy and eggs. Guests can expect variations on Nobu classics such as Crispy Rice with Avocado and Butternut Puree and the famous Baby Spinach Salad Dry Miso, or brand-new dishes such as Daikon Steak with Vinegar Miso and Quinoa Salsa, or Mushroom and Vegetable Toban Yaki (roasted in a ceramic plate) with Anticucho Sauce.
The Vegan Omakase, offers a similar culinary experience, yet containing no animal by-products. Dishes include Vegetable Tacos, a vegan Sushi Selection served with Vegetable Consommé, Tempura Vegetables, and a Seasonal Fruit Cobbler with Coconut Sorbet for dessert.
Alternatively, guests are welcome to order from the à la carte menu, which includes the restaurant’s world-class selection of sushi, hot and cold dishes prepared using only the freshest produce, line-caught fish, and premium cut meats. An irresistible assortment of desserts and an extensive wine and cocktail menu are also on offer. Nobu, situated at One&Only Cape Town in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, features a modern medley of Japanese classics fused with Peruvian flavours, and is the brainchild of Michelin-starred chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Nobu Cape Town spans two floors and boasts sleek, contemporary décor, with the option of both indoor and outdoor seating.
