Breathing new life into the weekly dining tradition is QT Gold Coast’s innovative Japanese restaurant and bar Yamagen, with the launch of Friday Lunch by Asahi.
Yamagen reinvents a traditional Japanese izakaya with a modern twist. It is a blend of old school kitchen samurai skills and new school chef invention led by culinary whizz Adam Lane. The Friday Lunch is expected to fish out market-fresh sashimi, cocktails foodies have not tried before, share plates that are too good to share, flame-grilled kushiyaki sticks and of course, ice-cold Asahi Dry. Popular lunch favourites include the Insta-worthy sashimi tacos, thinly sliced truffle snapper, house-made gyoza and teriyaki chicken paired with Japanese fusion cocktails and one of Australia’s largest Japanese whisky range. And then, when the lunching is done, it is time to head to the bar with the type of buzz a place gets on a Friday afternoon, when that post-work hype is in the air.
Yamagen Friday Lunch by Asahi is available every Friday from 12pm to 3pm. The restaurant and bar is also open Tuesday through Saturday from 5.30pm until late.
