Hide Yamamoto – Mid-Day Kaiseki

Nice long lunches have become a thing of the past now that I have passed the 6-month mark in the company.

Today though, was an exception – I had made a reservation at Hide Yamamoto to celebrate a colleague’s birthday.

Nested in the heart of where all the celebrity restaurants are at MBS – the place was practically empty when we arrived at 12 noon. The restaurant did get busier a while later – patronised mainly by tourists as oppose to the corporate crowd like us.

The restaurant offers a weekday lunch menu at very good value (Note: The lunch menu offered to us is a scaled down version of what you will see on their website. Only SUSHI LUNCH and LUNCH KAISEKI options were available).

We ordered a combination of Don set, Kaiseki and A La Carte options. The quality of food was consistently good but what really stood out for me was the Kaiseki set —-

Appetizer
The Kaiseki experience started with a SELECTION OF SEASONAL APPETISERS. This was followed by a very delectable CHAWANMUSHI with black truffle flan and sea urchin (Truffle + Sea urchin = Heavenly!!) – I was so eager to devour it I forgot clean about photographing it.

Tempura
JAPANESE SPRING VEGETABLE TEMPURA

sushi
ASSORTED SUSHI

Beef
GRILLED BEEF ROLLED WITH VEGETABLES – awesome awesome flavors, really loved this one.

HY Sherbet
STRAWBERRY & KIWI SHERBET

Overall, a very delightful Kaiseki experience at great value. Service was prompt (we finished everything in an hour!) and helpful – I also liked the fact that they allowed us to share the Kaiseki set.
If you are looking for a ‘quickie’ mid-day kaiseki, this could jolly well be it!
