TungLok Group kicks off 2023 with a Four-Hands Japanese Dinner taking place from 10 to 12 January 2023 at QĪN Restaurant & Bar. QĪN’s Executive Chef James Tay joins hands with the Group’s Executive Chef of Japanese Cuisine Cash Fong to present an eight-course collaborative menu. This is the second of a four-part Four-Hands Modern Gastronomy Dinner series which made its debut last November.
Armed with over 20 years of culinary experience in Japanese restaurants, Chef Cash expertly blends Japanese cuisine’s delicate complexity with Chef James’ repertoire of innovative culinary techniques in this Four-Hands menu.
The first of eight courses, the Hamachi Mosaic is an edible masterpiece. Composed of hamachi and nori, the roll is served in a hamachi bone dashi broth imbued with fragrant shiso oil and garnished with sustainably farmed caviar from local premium caviar retailer, Kairos Caviar. The crisp freshness of the bubbly Delamotte Blanc de Blancs 2014 pairs perfectly with this elegant creation.
Kinki impresses with its refined simplicity. The star of the dish is the channel rockfish, which is in season this winter. Diners will savour the fish at its peak, boasting an unparalleled flavour and sweetness that is enhanced on the grill. The dish is completed with a zesty yuzu miso sauce to cut through the richness of the smoky fish. Paired with the Elena Walch Beyond The Clouds 2019, this award-winning white wine complements the buttery Kinki with its fruity and floral notes.
