The award-winning cuisine of Narisawa, a two-Michelin-star Japanese restaurant in Tokyo, will be served in Singapore from March 24 to April 30. The five-week residence is a component of the Mandala Masters programme, which also features culinary residencies with well-known chefs like Mauro Colagreco, Gaggan Anand, and most recently, chef pair Virgilio Martnez and Pia Léon.
Narisawa is known for its distinctive “Satoyama” cuisine, in which he uses the freshest seasonal ingredients to honour the traditional food culture of Satoyama. It is the only restaurant in Asia to have received this honour for the last 15 years in a row. Diners can anticipate a strong focus on nutrition and sustainable gastronomy in each delicious plate that is inspired by nature.
In “Bread of the Forest” (seen above), one of his enigmatic interpretations, the natural yeast in the bread is seen working its magic on a mesmerising bed of seasonal flowers and fruits. The residency will have a brand-new dish designed to use locally-sourced, sustainably sourced ingredients. Diners can also anticipate local and regional ingredients, primarily from Malaysia and Indonesia, being incorporated into their existing signature dishes in keeping with the restaurant’s culinary vision.
While the full menu isn’t carved in stone, Narisawa explains that new items will make up half of this pop-up menu. With previously unserved sake and Japanese wine that has been carefully selected to combine, Narisawa seeks to attract drinkers.
Tickets are as excellent as courtside tickets because the renowned chef will be present for the whole five-week stint at the small, 20-seat eatery. With the help of his 15-person staff, he serves lunch (starting at $518) and dinner (starting at $748). This unique eating experience is only possible because of renovations being done to Tokyo’s Narisawa restaurant. Narisawa is also anticipating starting a branch in Shanghai later in May.
