World-famous chef Nobu Matsuhisa returns to his Hong Kong restaurant for Gala Dinners on 20 and 21 November 2018. The 8-course Omakase Menu (HK$1,488 + 10% service per person) features premium seasonal ingredients from Japan and beyond, prepared in Nobu’s innovative new style, with a preview of NOBU InterContinental Hong Kong’s 2019 culinary promotion, “LIUHE WAREKI” Japanese Gourmet Experience.
“Wareki” refers to the ancient Japanese calendar, which consists of 24 solar terms, each named and reflected by seasonal changes. Over the centuries, this calendar has been crucial for farming and fishing and as an indicator for the culinary industry when selecting seasonal ingredients.
“Liuhe” is a metaphysical term alluding to 6 directions within the universe: East, South, West, North, Heaven and Earth. At NOBU InterContinental Hong Kong, the concept is being transformed into the 6 Dimensions of Japan: Past, East, South, West, North and Future and integrating the “Wareki” concept to create the 2019 NOBU Gourmet Series, showcasing 6 viewpoints. Each promotion will combine seasonal components related to “Wareki” (Japanese calendar) with “Liuhe” (direction).
Aspects of the NOBU 2019 “Wareki–Liuhe” Japanese Gourmet Experience are incorporated into the Gala Dinner Menu.
