Settling into our New Location – Blossoms Aruba

new location

We are nearing the end of the third month in our new location, having opened our doors in mid-April. Moving an entire restaurant operation as carefully crafted as Blossoms is not easy! We’re still experimenting with the best interior layout, creating private room dining options, and preparing our gorgeous fish tanks and waterfall features, but you won’t notice any of that when you come for your culinary adventure through Japanese and Chinese cuisine!

We spent many happy years at our previous location and had no intention or desire to move. But when ownership of the resort changed, life became increasingly difficult for us and eventually intolerable. It is our hope that justice will be served through the courts to bring final closure to that difficult transition time. Rather than dwell on the negative, however, we are embracing what promises to be a bright future in our new location! Your favorite venue for Japanese sushi, sashimi, maki rolls, Teppanyaki and every Chinese dish imaginable is now found on the second level of the South Beach Centre in the heart of Palm Beach. But don’t worry – you don’t have to climb any stairs because a pressure-activated escalator will promptly and conveniently deliver you to our front door!

The Terracotta Soldiers at the New Location

As always, we have carefully placed all our Terracotta Soldiers throughout the restaurant, both inside and out, because your culinary adventure at Blossoms simply wouldn’t be complete without their watchful gaze. They’re very good about letting us know if anything is amiss!

Do you know about the origins of China’s famous Terracotta Army? It’s a collection of sculptures made to accompany the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, when he died around 210 BCE and protect him in the afterlife. First discovered by farmers in 1974 who were digging a water well, latest estimates in 2007 revealed more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots pulled by 520 horses and another 150 cavalry horses! Additional non-military terracotta figures have been found in other pits nearby, including musicians, strongmen, acrobats and officials.

All Your Favorite Dishes are at our New Location

Our full Chinese and Japanese menu is available at our new location, including one of the most unique dining experiences you can have on One Happy Island – our Teppanyaki tables! If you’re not familiar with Teppanyaki, let us first introduce you to the concept:

Teppanyaki is a particular style of Japanese cuisine where the food is prepared on a flat-surface grill. The word itself is derived from teppan (meaning iron plate) and yaki (meaning grilled, broiled or pan-fried). The advantage of Teppanyaki over grate-style grills in the restaurant setting is the ability to handle a wider array of small ingredients that would otherwise fall through into the open flames, including rice, eggs, and more finely chopped meats and vegetables.

At Blossoms we use the Teppanyaki Table to display the culinary prowess of expert chefs by seating dinner guests in-the-round on three sides of the grill to watch their meal being prepared. This transforms your experience from merely having a meal to enjoying an entertaining presentation of Teppanyaki cooking!

And of course you can also enjoy our extensive menu of Japanese Nigiri Sushi, Sahimi and Maki Rolls – delicious dishes carefully assembled to look as good as they taste:
