We've had the Kaiseki experience in Japan but never in Singapore. It was an opportunity to compare and contrast. We were invited for a food tasting in August 12.
The Kaiseki experience is very dependent on the chef but this day we had a choice of the beef wagyu and the ribeye.
Overall the Kaiseki experience is that high quality food is served in food displays that exemplify the high quality of the ingredients, you're to admire it before consuming it and the beauty enhances the experience. Kawai !!
For starters we had a mixed salad, in dainty bowls. A light clear soup with fresh vegetables and mushrooms.
Chilled Jap noodles soup and then the sashimi, slivers of very fresh fish in colourful plates.
For the mains we had a small Japanese hearth brought to our tables and the lovely pieces of wagyu and US ribeye cooked before our eyes. I almost jumped in surprise when I saw the small crab on the hearth also, but it didn't move and it was for decoration and consumption.
The tasty surprises did not end when they brought out the desserts, lovingly prepared and tasty. My only regret it that I'm restricted to 8 photos, I had lots more to share with HGW readers.
Value: We were invited so I cannot comment on the prices but you can be sure it in the three digit range. Pricey but it will be appreciated by Asian friends who appreciate the decoration, service, food plating and quality of food.
