|Perfect for any occasions|
HOMEMADE BREAD ＆ ORIGINAL SOYA BUTTER
Homemade bread served with hot stones in the bag to keep the breads warm.
The breads was so tasty and delicious.
Spanish Red Urchin/ Smoked Tofu/ 10 Years Miso / Fried Green Beans
The dish was one of the highlight if you saw my video.
Creamy Spanish red urchin and bean sprout placed on top of the smoked tofu and the assertive taste from the 10 years old miso.
MUSHROOM/ PROSCIOTTO BLANCMANGE/COFFEE BEANS
The mushroom soup was served with coffee foam and garlic chips on top of the prosciotto blancmange.
HOKKAIDO CRAB/ JAPANESE APPLE/GAZPACHO/YUZU
After pouring them together into the plate
So beautiful plated! You can have some fun pouring and mixing the ingredients onto a plate.
Overall taste: light and refreshing.
AMADAI/ BLACK TRUFFLE/ KOSHIHIKARI/ SEAWEED
This is definitely another highlight!
The broth for this dish was prepared in a syphon manner to achieve the desired flavour.
The soup is ready!
The waiter will then pour onto the bowl with the premium fish in the centre.
I was told the Amadai (Tile fish) was grilled with oil and seasoned with salt before putting it open-air for half a day to achieve the perfect crispy texture of the skin with the meat inside still soft and tender. The fish is served along with baked risotto and edamame in it. The risotto and edamame are prepared using the rice from Niigata City as well. You can see that's a lot of effort to prepare this.
JAPANESE WAGYU STEAK/NIPPON-ROSSINI STYLE
和牛ステーキ "ニッポン" ロッシーニ フォワグラ トリュフの極上のひとさら
Japanese Wagyu Steak is one of their signatures and a must try.
Chef cutting the beef
And tadah!!! The plating is amazing I know right!
The wagyu beef was served along with taro and seaweed butter and special crafted autumn leaves using red and yellow beetroots and baked onion. The beef is so tender and juicy.
PASSION FRUITS/ MIKAN/ LYCHEE
I don't mind having this everyday.
The combination was perfect!
The chef creatively used sweet potatoes and chocolate to create the autumn tree and leaves. There are sweet potatoes powder scattered over the dessert plate along with the bee pollen and maple syrup sauce to give the sweetness in it.
Come in a small box containing four mini bite-size desserts to pair it with a cup of coffee or tea.
In the box:
white chocolate with green tea, dorayaki red bean, French cake and chocolate in jasmine flavour.
