Nnaka is a small restaurant with a simple menu. It consists of three options – modern kaiseki, chef’s tasting or vegetarian – but in no way should it be confused with being basic or thoughtless. Each option has anywhere from 9 to 13 courses. And each dish is made with fresh seasonal ingredients delicately mixed to ensure that flavors play off one another in a balanced way.
At the helm of Nnaka is chef and owner Niki Nakayama, who studied the culinary art of kaiseko – a traditional multi-course meal that pays special attention to balancing the taste, texture and appearance. Her studies played a major role in the restaurants’ philosophy. As she states, “Nnaka is committed to creating a meal that will engage your attention – it’s about enjoying the moment, the current offerings of the season, and ultimately, the food in front of you.” Visit Nnaka if you’re in the Los Angeles area.
