Even if you are not an admirer of Japanese cuisine, you could not but be impressed with the artistry and presentation of the eight course Winter Tasting Tour devised by Executive Chef Moon Kyung Soo.
The menu normally consists of the following but as I am allergic to seafood, I was given alternatives so don’t necessarily match the image with the menu below (!) :
White Shrimp with Hokkaido Sea Urchin; Steamed Hokkaido Kegani Crab with Shiso Ponzu; Sushi and Sashimi in Edomae Style; Grated Lotus Root Cake with Kyushu Garlic and Karei with Lemon Miso Sauce; Kagoshima Wagyu Beef with Homemade Tofu; Prawn Rice Cake Isobe Yaki with Fish Cake Soup Kansai Style and Soba Ice Cream with Kyoto Dried Persimmon.
Course 2 – this course was pure theatre with a touch of the Harry Potters!
Course 6 – you have to unwrap your beef!
Course 8 – just love the delicacy of the footprints here.
Unofficial course 9 – Sweeties!
A recommendation is to complement this menu with Sake with suggestions from the property’s Sake Sommelier, Sano Nobuhiko. As I was a little jetlagged, this proved a temptation too far for me! Next time …
