Wow. What a stunning meal! Florilége was voted No. 3 in the 2018 list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants (No. 99 in the world!) I have absolutely no question as to why. Chef Hiroyasu Kawate surprises you with both presentation and ingredients. There’s one dish in particular that shines for it’s thoughtfulness and sustainability message – beef carpaccio using beef from a 13 year old cow versus meat you’d normally have from a cow slaughtered at 2-3 years old.
Surprisingly the portion sizes were much larger than I anticipated and when our server noticed me slowing down, he had the remaining dishes made smaller so I could make it through. Say yes to the wine pairing – so good! And if you don’t drink alcohol, the non-alcoholic pairing was even more impressive and beautiful.
You’ll definitely need a reservation far in advance (1-2 months) – well worth it!
