UMI Rooftop + Tokyo Kitchen Brings Japanese Flavors to Mexico at Thompson Playa del Carmen
Inspired by Tokyo’s contemporary “Izakaya” style cuisine, UMI opens today under Japanese native Chef Román Osamu
Inspired by the North Pacific Ocean, this gastronomic experience envelops your senses in Asian flavors through its local, seafood-based menu. UMI offers views of the Caribbean Sea to complement its dishes, ranging from sashimis, makis, and nigiris to grilled octopus and salmon teriyaki.
“Japanese cuisine always uses local and seasonal products, since the freshest foods have much better flavor and nutritional properties,” said Chef Román Osamu. “This is the true essence of what Japanese cuisine is for me.”
The venue immerses guests in a multi-sensory experience through its cuisine, atmosphere, and service, transporting diners to Japan in the midst of Eastern Mexico. DJs and live performers with curated playlists create a lively ambiance contrasted with the serene aesthetic that pairs perfectly with UMI’s sake, beer, and cocktails.
