WHY GO? A quiet, charming and cosy restaurant located in a neighbourhood shopping mall. Umenohana specialises in detail-oriented kaiseki cuisine with a focus on both preparation and presentation. Signature kuroge black wagyu and snow and king crab are of the highest quality.
WHAT TO ORDER? Begin your experience with a choice of premium fresh fish including hon maguro otoro or uni, which is sweet and custard like—the ice cream of the sea—served either as sashimi or sushi, the latter with sticky rice scented with vinegar. Follow this with the house special of imported crab, steamed or coated in a flaky, crunchy tempura batter. The meat is very tender. Continue with the signature of village-reared black wagyu, slow-cooked sukiyaki style in a broth of soy sauce and mirin, accentuating the sought-after fatty taste of this rarely seen beef. The tofu accompanying this dish is home-made, organic and delivers a unique flavour. Themed set menus are available so one can enjoy a wide variety of smaller dishes should one prefer. Desserts are a choice of either simple fresh fruit or a creamy matcha ice cream.
Drinks An extensive selection of sakes and Japanese liquors is offered with helpful annotations explaining their origin and taste. There is also a short but ample wine list.
Price: 2,600 Baht/person
