KAISEKI, a luxurious Japanese multi-course experience, will soon pamper gourmands at Matsu in Lone Pine Hotel, Penang.
An exquisite art form balancing tastes, textures and appearances, it is considered one of the most exalted culinary concepts in the world.
The Kaiseki promotion, to be introduced on March 1, features seven-course meals priced at RM98++ per person, or RM115++ with additional wine pairing.
According to the Japanese cuisine chef Alex Ong at the hotel in Batu Ferringhi, the concept is still rather novel here.
“Kaiseki is the ultimate style of Japanese cuisine. It emphasises fresh and fine ingredients and the aim is to bring out the natural flavours in perfect harmony,” he said.
