More than 2,000 years ago, an ancient tradition began when women went freediving for oysters and pearls along the coast of Japan. These women, who were praised all across the country for their hard work, were known as AMAss or “sea women”. Today, this old technique has again come into favour as a sustainable way to dive for seafood.
During the 19th century, Japanese people began to immigrate to Peru, which subsequently had a huge impact on the food culture. The Japanese influence manifested itself as the Nikkei cuisine, a fusion between the two countries’ culinary delights. The thrill and fun of two cuisines being fused together is now taking the world by storm!
The AMA restaurant experience is primarily inspired by Nikkei cuisine and delicious seafood in a vibrant contemporary environment right by the sea in Helsingborg. The heart of the restaurant is the open kitchen that features a raw bar with fresh seafood dishes, a robata grill and an oceanside cocktail bar.
