Okonomi As You Like It
Singapore, September 2014 – Keyaki presents an additional reason to celebrate weekends with a new okonomi concept kaiseki weekend brunch. Featuring a curated menu of perennial Japanese culinary favourites, guests may indulge in this customisable eight-course experience by selecting their delicacy of choice from each course. Weekend Brunch at Keyaki is from 11.30am to 2.30pm and priced at $75.
Okonomi is a Japanese term which translates to ‘as you like it’ or ‘your preference’, and Chef Hiroshi Ishii (石井博) has applied this concept to the new weekend brunch at Keyaki. Guests are presented with a tasting menu of eight courses and invited to select one of five different options per course, allowing them to tailor the experience to best suit their preferences.
The menu was crafted with balance in mind starting with lighter, chilled presentations such as Kobachi and Sashimi to slowly waken the palette, before proceeding on to textured, hot dishes such as Yakimono and Teppanyaki. The savoury courses are rounded off with Shokuji dishes which are crafted to cleanse the palette, before concluding on a sweet note with a delightful choice of desserts.
