Known for its fresh produce such as Matsu Kinoko mushrooms and fragrant Amaou strawberries that are famous for their large size and sweet bite and seafood gems like Ebisu oysters and Shikanoshima Island clams, Fukuoka is a culinary destination not to be missed.
Managed by the Fukuoka City Fishery Cooperative Association, Hakata House is one of Fukuoka’s best eateries. And for two nights only, Thursday and Friday, 8 and 9 March 2018, the restaurant‘s executive chef, Yasuhiro Yamada, will be the guest chef at WHISK, cooking alongside WHISK chef Oliver Li.
The menu will feature six dishes including grilled Ebisu oysters with Hakata‘s famous mentaiko and charcoal-grilled whelk (sazae) with Japanese ginger bud (myoga) salad. While there will be plenty of seafood, also amongst the highlights is the free-range Hakata chicken – known for its firm bite and juicy flesh – and, last but not least, Amaou strawberries!
Chef Yamada will physically tend to the kitchen on 8–9 March, but the menu will be available until 22 March 2018. The Culinary Postcard from Fukuoka menu is priced at $690 for four courses and $890 for six courses. I‘d go for the strawberries alone.
