A. The juicy and tender Sauteed U.S. Sirloin Beef with Green Pepper Demiglace Sauce is perfect with black salt, spice salt, and black pepper sauce.
B. Sesame Salmon Salad with Mustard Dressing is a refreshing dish that goes well with the handmade mustard and vinegar dressing. The edges of the salmon are coated in white sesame and pan-fried just slightly to enhance flavors.
C. Charmant has private rooms that need to be reserved in advance.
