Serbia has a very diverse offer of groceries, so it is possible to prepare traditional Japanese dishes such as tempura, sushi and others.
Otsuka Kouki, personal chef of the Ambassador of Japan, H.E. Takahiko Katsumata, specializes in preparing European, and especially French dishes. He also worked as a chef for the Japanese embassy in Turkmenistan, before coming to Belgrade in 2020.
