Brazil Meets Japan
Originally started in Italy in 2012, Temakinho is today the leading restaurant company in Europe, specialised in Japanese-Brazilian fusion cuisine with eleven active restaurants and new openings being announced every month.
In each one of our locations, the Japanese culinary tradition meets with the taste, colours and vibes of Brazil to the beat of jazz, samba and bossa nova.
Our menu includes a wide selection of high-quality fish-based dishes such as Petiscos (Brazilian appetizers), Tartaras, Cheviche, Tiraditos, Rolls and Temakis. More recently, we’ve expanded our vegetarian offer to meet the needs of an increasing customer base highly sensitive to contemporary environmental issues and ethical sourcing.
Sustainability is a part of Temakinho’s philosophy since day one.
We source all of our fish from sustainable fish farming and ethical fishing and we strive to reduce and bring plastic waste close to zero on a daily basis.
All our takeaway packaging is sustainable, recyclable or compostable, our napkins are made of 100% recycled paper and we offer free filtered water to our guests in order not to sell plastic bottles. For those who prefer to consume sealed bottled water, we have glass bottled water available for purchase.
In addition, last year we’ve officially banned plastic straws from all our restaurants and replaced them with PLA alternatives, a compostable material derived from corn.
It’s a consistent commitment and enthusiastic effort involving all aspects of our business, which was officially recognized and rewarded in 2016 when Temakinho was the first chain of restaurants to be awarded the Friends of the Sea certification.
