The symbol of the Japanese Imperial House and an indicator that autumn has begun, the chrysanthemum flower has been venerated in Japan for thousands of years. To celebrate the season of the chrysanthemum, Yamazato Master Chef Shigeru Hagiwara has created authentic chrysanthemum Gozen lunch and a delicious multi-course Kaiseki dinner.
Highlights of the Gozen lunch include dishes such as simmered sweet fish with roe, pumpkin, carrot okura and yuzu with chrysanthemum sauce; and Amberjack with edamame garnished with sweet potato and pickled turnip.
Stars of the offerings on the Kaiseki dinner menu include the starter of torched marinated mackerel; a sashimi presentation encompassing tuna, yellow tail, seasonal saury fish, and sweet shrimp; and a grilled dish of Spanish mackerel with yuzu and scallop with butter, garnished with sweet potato, pickled turnip and ginko nuts.
The Chrysanthemum Festival Feast at Yamazato restaurant runs from 1st – 27th September, with lunch served from 11.30am – 2.30pm and dinner from 6pm – 10.30pm. Prices are Bt1,600++ for Gozen lunch and Bt4,700++ for Kaiseki dinner.
