Kia Ora, Tokyo: New ‘Zealander by Terra’ restaurant to offer NZ’s best

In the latest addition to Terra’s expanding Tokyo restaurant line-up, a treasure trove of New Zealand food and wine will be served up at its new ‘Zealander by Terra’ restaurant, opening on September 26 in the city’s Marunouchi commercial district.

Based on the fifth floor of the prestigious Shin-Marunouchi Building, Zealander by Terra is a joint venture with Tokyo-based Toranomon Jitsugyo Kaikan, which operates four hotels in New Zealand and has extensive knowledge of the Oceania nation’s food and culture.

The new restaurant follows the August 26 opening of Terra’s “South” restaurant in Ebisu, which offers a delicious seafood bounty from Australia and New Zealand.

“Zealander will offer diners a relaxed space to enjoy fresh, safe and delicious food and wine from New Zealand, which is famous for its commitment to quality produce,” said Ko Nagata, Managing Director of Global Sky Group.

“I welcome our partnership with Toranomon Jitsugyo Kaikan that has helped realise this new establishment, which will ensure Terra is able to offer the very best of Down Under in the world’s leading gourmet city.”

New Zealand has a rich culinary heritage, ranging from succulent roast lamb, one of the nation’s top export meats, to superb seafood such as oysters, mussels and salmon, matched with top-quality wines.

Zealander will capitalise on such quintessential Kiwi foods, combining food recipes and spices from around the world and serving modern tapas and grilled foods.

Zealander’s sommelier has also selected a range of typical New Zealand grape varieties including pinot noir and sauvignon blanc, giving diners the best on offer from New Zealand’s distinctive winegrowing regions.
