Contemporary Japanese restaurant ROKA has launched its first pop-up restaurant, Roka Mallorca at Cap Vermell Grand Hotel in Mallorca.

Roka Mallorca will serve its signature robatayaki cuisine at the rural retreat on the Balearic island’s historical east coast from 1 July until 12 September.

The robata grill has been at the heart of the Roka concept since the first restaurant opened in 2004 and its new outpost in Mallorca will bring the renowned robatayaki cuisine together with local flavours from land, sea, and sky.

Robata dishes include scallop skewers with wasabi and shiso; black cod marinated in yuzu miso; lamb cutlets with Korean spices; and Japanese eggplant in mirin, ginger and soy.

The restaurant features 110 outside seats, the robata grill, a dedicated bar serving trademark cocktails such as ichigo kub, a blend of gin, sweet strawberry mirin, Aperol, absinthe and lime, and a DJ booth.

Created and co-founded by chef-turned-restauranteur Rainer Becker in 2004, Roka followed hot on the heels of sister-restaurant Zuma’s success in London.

Mallorca is the brand’s first pop-up location, chosen personally by Sven Koch, Azumi Ltd CEO.
