Dashi Dreams at Nihonbashi Dashi Bar Hanare

Nihonbashi Dashi Bar Hanare, guided by Ninben, is a hidden gem established in 2014 that celebrates Japanese culinary heritage with a focus on bonito broth. It offers two culinary paths: ‘Classical techniques’ for traditional dashi-based dishes and ‘hanare techniques’ for innovative, Western-influenced creations, changing with the seasons. 


The essence of Nihonbashi Dashi Bar Hanare lies in ‘raw materials,’ ‘tradition,’ and ‘sophistication,’ blending traditional Japanese elements with an elegant ambiance. The menu features ‘dashi-infused rice’ prepared in contemporary Western pots, with ‘classical’ options highlighting bonito dashi’s umami and ‘hanare’ dishes infusing international flavors, all in harmony with the season. Dashi-infused rice combines rice with meats, seafood, vegetables, and mushrooms, along with seasonings like soy sauce, mirin, salt, and vinegar, focusing on the balance of these elements.


This traditional Japanese culinary art of dashi-infused rice varies regionally and seasonally, offering diverse options like chestnut rice in autumn and oyster rice in winter. Unique renditions like ikameshi, kakimeshi, taimeshi, and unagimeshi can be found across different regions.

As a side dish, Dishes Japan recommends that you indulge in the Deep-Fried Chinese Yam with KATSUOBUSHI. This Japanese-style potato fritter showcases the distinctive umami essence of bonito flakes, perfectly harmonizing with the expertly crisped Japanese yam, thus culminating in a delightful culinary masterpiece.
