Never have I ever indulged in an almost 4 hour leisurely meal at a restaurant, and completely immersed myself in the bursts of flavour and texture in every single mouthful. THAT is the dreamy experience that is Tetsuya's degustation.
I couldn't help but giggle with delight like a little child, as I sipped on my wine on my starved stomach and anticipated the experience that was about to begin. Overlooking the tranquil Japanese Garden setting... it's an unlikely hidden escape away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
With such elegant service that never falters in it's promptness and informativeness, we were so well looked after by the classy waitstaff. And with the arrival of each dish so beautifully and colourfully adorned with it's tasty morsels and decorations, we savoured every minute and mouthful.
Each dish exudes delicate and clean Japanese flavours combined with French techniques, and you learn to appreciate the beautiful balance of various ingredients and flavours. A Date at Tetsuya's is a MUST for anyone who wants to go on a true journey of flavours, not just a meal.... but a MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE.
