The Rhine Ruhr region of Germany has most definitely not escaped the increased popularity of sushi and other Japanese dishes such as tempura. A major concentration of excellent sushi bars can be discovered in Düsseldorf, some of which have a tradition reaching back well over thirty years. This is due to the state capital of NRW being one of the largest communities of Japanese residents outside Nippon worldwide.
Opportunities to eat good Asian food in general are also available in the cities across Rhine Ruhr such as Bonn, Cologne, Essen and Dortmund. Some restaurants offer relatively authentic tastes from China, Vietnam, Korea and Thailand.
