Private Chef - Elegant Japanese Dinner

Dive into a delicious journey that explores the bold yet minimalistic flavors of Japanese cuisine.

Chef Iliana will prepare a four-course meal with some of Japan’s most traditional dishes in this private chef experience. You’ll start by tasting fresh sashimi with soy sauce, and skewers of chicken yakitori with scallions. As the main course, you’ll explore the rich flavors of tonkotsu ramen made with egg, pork and noodles. For a sweet ending, you’ll enjoy pancake-like patties filled with red bean paste.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to accompany the menu, and may request pairing recommendations from the chef upon booking.
