This business is the result of meticulous planning and operations by manager Chou Yun-Chang and the five-star dining experience here offers various high-quality meals, including the Arasiyama Lunch Set (starting from NT$500) and Dinner Set (starting from NT$800). --By Niang Chen, translated by Naomi Lai
A. The Chef's Recommendation Meal Set (NT$750) includes a wild vegetable and fruit salad, seasonal sashimi (including Hokkaido shrimp, tuna, tai fish, scallops and seasonal fish), Grilled Silver Cod with Miso, Seafood Steamed Egg, Seafood and Wild Vegetable Tempura (prawns), seasonal sushi, Clam and Miso Soup, dessert, seasonal fruit and coffee/juice.
B. The Beef and Sea Salt Hobayaki (NT$320) uses juicy Wagyu beef, placed on a Houba leaf then heated on stone. The mixture of the delicately-fragrant leaf, marbled fat of the beef and its thick aroma makes this entree irresistible and delicious. Sprinkle on some French sea salt to bring out the sweetness of the meat.
