Voila’s cuisine is directly inspired by Hachinohe—its environment, its people, its ingredients—and we are constantly discovering new tastes that the region has to offer. Hachinohe, located at the southeastern edge of Aomori Prefecture, is full of seasonal delights.
A vibrant fishing port, the city faces the Pacific and has long been blessed with a bounty of seafood. Fruits and vegetables take on rich flavors in Tohoku’s unforgiving climate, exposed to the cold, biting yamase winds. We source our meat from Aomori, from beef, pork, and chicken to rarer meats like gibier, some of which we hunt ourselves. Our cuisine represents our impressions of the region and our experiences since moving to Hachinohe.
