A Cooling Japanese Meal

When I was in Japan, my Thai friend brought me to a restaurant nearby the Imperial Palace to have a taste of a really amazing Japanese meal.

This restaurant is inside a 5-star hotel, therefore the interior decor is a bit upmarket too. The ambiance was really nice for a quiet lunch.

All the items in the meal were served cold except the soup. Everything was presented so nicely in small dishes.

A Japanese meal is normally commenced with the soup as the chopsticks will be moisten to minimise the 'stickiness' of them to the food.

The main dishes in a Japanese meal are normally prepared in different ways; some preserved, some braised, some steamed, some boiled, and some grilled. However, they were chilled in this meal that I had.

This meal even came with some sashimi, which is my favourite Japanese food.

This tofu came with this meal too, but it tasted very different from the tofu I had before. It was silky smooth and it gave a cooling after-taste to my throat.

After I had finished with the main course, a chilled glass bowl was put in front of me.

It was actually the dessert of the day, mixed fruit served chilled.

I call this meal an amazing meal because it gave me the internal cooling that lasted for hours even when I was walking under the hot summer sun.

This meal should cost a bomb! I have spent almost S$900 per person at a top traditional Japanese restaurant in Singapore.
