The collaboration between two well-loved brands from Hakata will feature a specially curated menu for diners in Singapore
SINGAPORE, 14th August 2019 – Two well-loved brands originating from Hakata – IPPUDO and Les Trois Chocolats – are joining hands for the first-time ever for an exclusive dining experience in Singapore on 17 and 18 August 2019 at IPPUDO Tanjong Pagar outlet.
IPPUDO’s founder, Mr Shigemi Kawahara and 3rd generation owner of Les Trois Chocolats, Ms Emiko Sano, have collaboratively created a special menu with handcrafted appetisers, a special ‘dashi’ ramen as well as artisanal chocolate desserts. Both brands share a deep passion to bring flavours of Hakata to the world.
The experience starts off with a glass of welcome champagne and a snack, Cheese Senbei, made luxe with the use of Hakata mentaiko and caviar. A series of intricately made appetisers follow: dishes such as Beef Tataki with Consomme Jelly, Deep-fried Snow Crab and Zucchini with Soy Sauce Powder, Japanese Cold Corn Soup with Noodles and Summer Vegetables with Gazpacho Sherbet are sure to whet appetites for what’s next in store.
The main course features an IPPUDO special “Dashi” Ramen made special by combining two different kinds of dashi stock, meticulously prepared using porcini mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and kelp, as well as two different types of meats: beef and chicken. The medley of ingredients results in a flavourful and smooth broth. Paired with a variety of toppings such as tamago, chicken chashu, Japanese hornwort, menma and leek, the ramen presents a multi-faceted taste experience.
Expect the experience to be heightened at dessert time, with handcrafted artisanal desserts from Les Trois Chocolats. Started by Gensaku Sano (Emiko Sano’s grandfather) in 1942, the brand is the first artisanal chocolate shop in Hakata and boasts a passion for making recipes and chocolates perfect for the tastes of the Japanese. Drawing from her Japanese roots and her rich experiences in France, diners will be served special handcrafted chocolate creations such as the Ringo Exotic, featuring the citrus and herbaceous notes of apple, yuzu, ginger, basil, mango and passionfruit; Cacao, with strong flavours of pickled prunes in hot wine, Madagascar vanilla and cacao; and other artisanal desserts such as the Les Trois Chocolats Bon Bon Chocolats and Lime Meringue – guaranteed to end your meal on a delightfully sweet note.
