Available from 15 to 28 March, the menu consists of a six-course tasting menu, priced affordably at $75++ per pax, contemporary dessert curations and a lineup of Spring cocktails to commemorate the changing of seasons.

The tasting menu has been specially curated with Chef Janice, and the theme is to present a dining experience with a contemporary expression of art and food. Diners will start off with a warm and comforting Dobin Mushi that is made with a base of Katsuo dashi with the additions of kinmedai and spring vegetables. The savoury umami flavour balances out with the freshness of the vegetables, making this soup a highly palatable entry to the course meal. It will be followed by the Maple Iberico Pork Jowl served with a lentil bacon puree in which diners can enjoy the excellent texture and ratio of meat to fat. A citrusy palate cleanser, named Citrus on Wood, refreshes the tastebuds with a cardamom panna cotta at the bottom of the bowl with the tartness from the bergamot bubbles.

Perhaps my favourite and most surprising dish of the evening, the Nenrin will wow diners with the multiple layers of flavour, texture and temperature as on one side, you have a mushroom risotto and pan-seared foie gras, while on the other side, a burdock ice cream, with black garlic and salted caramel circling around the plate. You might think that the combination sounds farfetched and might not work out but put a bit of every single element of this plate onto a spoon, and you can truly understand why this dish is being highly raved about.

The meal concludes with the Kyoto Garden, constructed with an earl grey ice cream rock, orange blossom jelly and floral parfait, and the Ichigo of the Tochigi strawberries prepared four ways. All in all, an artful presentation and display of how different herbs, spices and ingredients can come together to create a masterpiece. What are you waiting for?
