A meal at Kataori in any season is always a very special experience. The subtlety of his cooking is phenomenal. The dashi gets prepared during the meal with everyone getting a first draw in a shot glass. It is so good! A new course was the tempura style fried kombu with ebi on top of it. A prefect match in taste and a total contrast in texture. One is tempted to ask for seconds.
Unfortunately this place is close to impossible to book as its popularity soared during the pandemic. But try, beg your... More

残雪の金沢。
側を流れる浅野川。美しく透き通る青空。
雪解け水の豊かな瑞々しい調べ。
美しいお昼時に伺うことができました。
金沢の名店、片折さん。

大将ご夫妻の空気もお弟子さん達も皆さん
暖かで優しい、居心地の良い空間。
お料理はもう、言わずもがなの美味しさでした。
感激致しました。

奇を衒わないシンプルなお料理。
しかし一寸たりとも狂いのない凛としたお料理。
美しくそして優しいコースでした。

食材の細胞がどこも丸くて、まんまるで、
体の細胞にも優しく染み込んでゆく旨味。
お茶も全てこんなにまろやかなお味があるのかしら、と思いながら頂きました。

素晴らしかったです。

春菊豆腐、赤ガレイの一夜干しのお椀、
ヒラメとヤリイカのお作り、生クチコの茶碗蒸し
めじ鮪、寒鰆の焼き物、あん肝、、と続きます。
どこをとっても上品で繊細で深い味わいが拡がる。
ヒラメの状態も素晴らしくよかった。
生クチコの茶碗蒸し、クセの強いうのクチコが旨味と風味を良い塩梅で残しながらクセはどこかに飛んでいる。エレガントクチコ。エクセレントクチコ。
魚の火入れも絶妙でした。
当たり前かもしれませんが当たり前ではないんですよね。この完璧さ。
どのお皿も完璧って、ありそうでなかなか無い。
フナのおさしみ、鯉の洗いの感じですがフナだそうで。
フナあまり経験値無いのですがとても美味しく頂きました。香茸、豆腐入りの茶巾も美味、お出汁、あんかけ、本当においしい。お腹膨れそうで膨れない。
美味しいーー!、のエンドレスラビリンスコース。

締めのごはんものは5種類いただきました。
大将のお父様がお造りになっているお米もとてもおいしくて、そしてお母様お手製の梅干も酸っぱいのですがお茶漬けだとスルスルと日本の原風景を感じながら頂ける。

どれもこれも最高で、、
次回がまた楽しみです。

本当にありがとうございました。... More

Kataori continues to be a benchmark restaurant. Even in a season where there are not given highlights like crab or mushrooms. The subtlety and calibration of taste in his dishes is just extraordinary. For example the ankimo, soft in texture but bold in flavor created a very sensual experience. His Tabelog Gold level is well deserved, his two stars in the Guide Michelin are underrated in comparison to the three star place in Kanazawa.

Another amazing meal at Kataori. All the ingredients were perfectly cooked and subtly seasoned to express their best natural flavors. Glad to see the Noto 115 shiitake again! •

Purity, focus, quality. Kataori was an exceptional meal. Worth the journey and the contortions required to get a seat. Kanazawa is a lovely city to explore - make sure you stay a while as well.

Kataori 片折 3rd visit — best experience here so far. Loved how Kataori san showcased the color and purity of late spring ingredients. The botan ebi was huge and sweet; first time seeing so many live hotaru ika simply boiled in dashi, pure taste of the ocean and umami. •

Kataori 片折 2nd visit — I was even more impressed by the natural flow of the courses and the purity of the ingredients than the first time. Highlights were shirako on ice; freshly caught maguro slightly cut to soften the texture; and grilled shiitake which smelled like heaven. Looking forward to next time! •

Back for winter menu. Quality was top notch as always, although still shy of the first visit. The fresh tuna belly had a tougher texture than normal so some insane knife skills were used to balance the texture. Shirako on ice also gives the shirako more grip but the highlights for me were the shiitake and crab dishes.

Dried fern rolled with fried tofu, wild mustard

珠洲産干しゼンマイの信太巻き、壬生菜

戻し方が丁寧なのか,雑味が一切ないゼンマイが出色。しみじみと美味しく、体に染み渡るよう。

旬の高級食材が美味しいのはある意味当然だが、地味な郷土料理にも真摯に取り組み、負けないくらいに記憶に残る一品に仕上げているのが素晴らしい。

First visit in the summer at Kataori. I was looking forward to eat the seasonal vegetables and seafood. As always Chef Takuya Kataori did not disappoint. His skills and palate is remarkable. Only established in 2018 he is now ranked just behind Ogata in Kyoto in the #2 spot for kaiseki restaurants in all of Japan. Even more remarkable is the fact that he spent his entire career in Kanazawa and was never trained in Kyoto or Tokyo. His dedication to source the best ingredients is incredible. He built... More

Most likely the best Kaiseki restaurant in Kanazawa. Especially in the snow crab (Kano-gani) season. If you have your timing right, you come during the very short reason for the female snow crab (Kobako-gani), called "flavour box" in Japanese for its wonderful taste. And if you are really lucky, Takuya Kataori, the Chef/Owner picked up some Matsutake from Suzu.
Kataori-san kills the Kobako-gani right in front of you and the gently grills the legs on the Binchōtan grill. He feels when it is perfectly... More

Dinner at a very traditional Kaiseki place in Kanasawa. The young Chef indulged us five diners with 2 massive snow crabs which we ate completely in various courses.
The legs which he just grilled for a few minutes on the kappo grill on the counter were just sublime. Nothing added to them, just warmed in the shell for a few minutes and cut into halves.
A feast for eye and palate!
