Fantastic meal at one of the hardest to book restaurants in Kyoto, one of the very few side effects of the Corona crisis.
Very casual, informal, super professional, like a really well oiled engine, the team around Chef Noguchi creates an inspired cuisine which does not seem to follow rules but surely creates indulgence.
The layering of flavours is addictive, the creativity of its presentation astonishing and the execution flawless.
Onion with caviar on egg yolk, the saltiness of caviar contrast the sweetness of the onion while the almost red egg yolk binds it all together. Simple and pure it displays the intuitive deep understanding of the context of flavours, textures and temperature.
