Nobu Cape Town's new Nobu Lite Menu - perfect for after-work dinner and drinks

Nobu Lite platter

Foodies and sushi-lovers can now indulge in a series of 'tastes' of Nobu thanks to this award-winning restaurant's innovative new Nobu Lite menu, showcasing a smorgasbord of tapas-style tasters that reflect the fusion style that has placed this innovative dining brand on the global food stage.
It's an affordable way to get the best of Nobu's dishes and enjoy the great ambiance and cocktail menu at the same time.  On Thursdays, a DJ plays great lounge music (either Grant and Craig Da Sousa), making it an ideal after-work spot for a light supper and drinks to start winding down the week.

Available daily from 6 to 8pm, the menu features a host of delectable culinary offerings for the lighter-diner. The stars of this menu are the three Lite offerings, served family style for four people to share.

Nobu Lite features tastes from some of Nobu's most loved carne courses including Beef Kushiyaki, Chicken Anticucho, Pork Belly and Beef New Style while there is also the Pescetarian Lite option which features Salmon & Tuna Tacos, Hot Miso Chips, Tuna Tataki with Ponzu, Tuna Tempura Roll and Salmon Anticucho Skewers.

Vegetarians are in good hands thanks to the Vegetarian Lite option with tastes including the famous Broccoli Chili Salsa and the Shojin Tempura. And the grilled aubergine is to-die-for!

Nobu also invites guests to create their own platters or to select dishes individually, so, if you're just two people for example, it's a better option to create your own, as the platters may be a bit big – although you can always give them a try!

Other menu choices served between 6 and 8pm in the sophisticated Nobu Lounge include their cult six-piece sushi rolls as well as a selection of interesting edible innovations that reflect the Nobu brand's Japanese roots and Peruvian influences. These can be enjoyed alone or as part of a platter.

Apart from Nobu’s famed sake-based cocktails, give their wickedly delicious, recently launched Patron cocktails a try.

Overall, my absolute favourites were the Tuna Tacos and the Tuna Tataki with Ponzu – I would go back just for those dishes!
