Akira Back – JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi
The menu at this restaurant is a blend of various cultures like Japanese, Korean, and South American. Akira Back, the chef, is originally from Korea but grew up in America and used to be a professional snowboarder. The restaurant has a cozy dining room with dim lighting, a fancy cocktail bar, and a spacious open kitchen. The dishes are meant to be shared and offer a modern twist on traditional flavors. This year, Akira Back’s culinary skills were recognized with the MICHELIN Bib Gourmand Award.
