DJAPA-licious yeah I know that's stupid.. but hey, you're reading this..;)
Wan Chai, I have thoughts of Wan chai being old dirty and kinda funky mostly gritty and seedy.. but, this place is clean cool and Funky. thats Funky good, actually, Funky GREAT!!!
Djapa is Brazilian Japanese food - cool mash up.
It may sound odd but it's really quite good.
This place is located in what seems to be the ever on going new construction in Wan Chai - when you are walking into where this restaurant is located you may feel as if you are in a cheesy open air strip mall, don't let that fool you.
This place is cool, hip, fun, and most importantly DELICIOUS.
When you walk up you are immediately greeted by the color splash the furniture and art throws at you- great music is playing and a huge Murakami sits above you and oversees the whiskey bar it's an amazing piece.
The art in this place is insane(we'll talk about that later)
I sat down at the bar - Do you like whisky? if you do you have to sit at the bar too.
You simply have to.
I m a huge fan of japanese whiskey and this place is the place to get it.
What an amazing collection.
They have stuff from private collections that you just cannot get your hands on.
Just be ready because that kind of whisky is pricey $$$but if you find one you love, and you know it. You have to try it. simply amazing.
If it were up to me I would have not left the bar.
I could have stayed here and gone hungry and still left a happy man.
But this is a restaurant, we have to try the food, the food is fusion of brazilian and japanese cuisine and they do it right
ok I ll admit that after I did the whisky flights, I m a bit cloudy on exactly what we ate.. but I will tell you this.. it was delicious, fresh and incredibly good.
we had some charred hominy that was amazing
some beef, the kagoshima ribeye with egg that just melted in your mouth - so good
the pork & plantain
the kagoshima chuck roll - which was killer - cooked to perfection each medallion melted in your mouth.. (Im hungry)
the started was the shiso salad negi, micro greens, golden berries- i love meat, obviously and this salad would have been satisfying just to eat alone.
This place is also for art lovers- everyone can and will appreciate the colourful art by many different artists from around the world.
ThesHajime Sorayamae - you've seen his art on aerosmith just push play album.
Yayoi Kusama - they large pumpkin is right next to you LOL
those are just 3 of the featured artists..
every piece in this place is real and amazing the loud, fun graffiti style pieces make you feel relaxed. This place is unpretentiously cool in every way.
