New traditional restaurant in the Balearic Islands.
15 April 2021
Contemporary Japanese restaurant concept ROKA is expanding its portfolio and announcing a new pop-up restaurant in the Balearics for this year's summer season. The location is exclusive and extraordinary: the luxurious Cap Vermell Grand Hotel at Mallorca. There, guests and visitors will soon be able to enjoy the Japanese culture, combined with the Spanish lifestyle.
Japanese Signature Cuisine in the Balearic Islands
Located in a secluded valley on the eastern edge of the Balearic island, ROKA Mallorca opens its doors in the iconic Cap Vermell Grand Hotel throughout the 2021 summer season. 585 square meters of restaurant space will provide room for 100 outdoor seats, as well as a bar and DJ booth centered around Japan's signature Robata grill. In addition to its award-winning Robatayaki concept and individual interpretation of modern Japanese cuisine, ROKA also brings its signature energy to this new location.
Founded in London in 2004 by Rainer Becker, ROKA quickly followed its successful sister restaurant Zuma. At the heart of the menu is the Robata Grill, a traditional Japanese method of cooking over charcoal, inspired by the fishermen of Japan's northern coastal waters. Made famous by the brand's first restaurant in London, dishes include. kankoku fu kohitsuji, Lamb chops with Korean spices and sesame cucumber, and kampachi sashimi no saladaYellowtail sashimi with yuzu truffle dressing, is one of the signature dishes at ROKA Mallorca. The menu is rounded off by a range of signature cocktails such as the ichigo kub, a creation of gin, strawberry-mirin, Aperol, absinthe and lime. The Mallorcan offshoot of the restaurant concept also celebrates the culinary characteristics of the destination by incorporating typical flavours and ingredients of the island into its menu.
"We are very excited about the opportunity to open ROKA at Cap Vermell Grand Hotel this summer. This is ROKA's first pop-up and we feel the luxury hotel is the perfect location for it. We are very much looking forward to working with Toni Mir and the team to bring the ROKA experience to the island together," commented Sven Koch, CEO of Azumi Ltd.
"We are thrilled to welcome the ROKA brand to our hotel," said Toni Mir, CEO of Cap Vermell Group. "The energy of this concept perfectly complements our luxury resort and we look forward to expanding our exceptional culinary offerings for both hotel and external guests this summer."
ROKA Mallorca complements the existing restaurant portfolio in Canary Wharf, Mayfair, Charlotte Street and Aldwych in London and Dubai. Further new openings in 2021 are planned in Riyadh and Kuwait.
