An excellent example of Asian cooking in Girona. When Umai opened its doors, there were few other restaurants of this kind in the city.
An excellent example of Asian cooking in Girona. When Umai opened its doors, there were few other restaurants of this kind in the city. This is the story of a chef of Mexican origin and his Chinese wife, who decided to create a restaurant featuring Oriental cuisine with a sushi bar. The chef had the opportunity to work at different places in Tokyo for four years, where he learnt to create top sushi. As well as Japan, Umai takes a culinary tour of south-east Asia, via India, Malaysia, Korea and China. As such, on the menu you'll find sushi but also other, less well-known creations like 'yukhoe', Korean-style veal tartare. Just next door, and connected via a terrace, is Izakaya, where there is a more informal style of cooking, for instance with dishes created with 'robatayaki', a typical Asian way of cooking using coal embers. The well-priced set menu of the day allows you to choose between various options from its range of dishes, and they also do tasting menus.
