High end food reviews. Typically more than $100 per person for that special occasion or important business meeting that’s on the company’s tab.
I have always had an inexplicable fondness for anything Italian - the Ferrari’s, Monica Bellucci, Michelangelo’s art to their world famous Italian cuisine *said with that Italian hand gesture*.
I have imagined gathering up my tifosi on a nice Saturday afternoon, lounging in a posh Italian restaurant with the best available view, acting out my Italian fantasy of being an Italian playboy while eating my heart out on authentic Italian cuisine.
At the helm of Shisen Hanten is Chef Kentaro, synonymous with grandiose Szechuan cuisine, with a twist of Japanese influences. This year, we bloggers were invited for a taste of the Chinese New Year set menu, a rich eight course dining experience.
The menu heavily features seafood, and each dish is carefully thought out with significance and meaning attached to it. This also includes other festive goodies, like the Hokkaido Pumpkin Cake, Fish Nian Gao and the Golden Ingot Pineapple Tart.
