Izakaya, an exceptional shared-dining concept in Munich, serving modern Japanese cuisine with South American influences, has been delighting its guests with traditional Japanese dining experience taken to a higher level by giving it a contemporary, creative twist for some time now. This season, it has come forward with a unique Oktoberfest menu, presenting its own take on the traditional festival, spiced up with Japanese and Peruvian flavours. The menu comprises a seven-course, Izakaya signature shared dining experience with a fusion of cuisines coming together for the traditional Oktoberfest. The innovative concept of Izakaya is based on the social aspect – guests are invited to share small plates and discuss new textures and flavours with one another. The seasonal banquet kicks off with Salmon, Yellow Tail, and Sea Bass with Yuzu soy, followed by Beef Tataki with Onion Ponzu and Garlic Chips, Sweet Corn Tempura, Creamy Spicy, Butter Ponzu, Weißwurst Gyoza and Sweet Mustard Goma. For the main event, prepare for Tonkatsu Japanese Sauerkraut and BBQ Sauce, grilled Poussin, Baby Chicken with Anti-Cucho Sauce and Roasted Kabocha with Pumpkin in tempura Sauce.
The Duchess, an elegant Michelin Star Belle Époque-inspired restaurant located in Amsterdam’s historical former KAS Bank, is celebrating World Vegetarian Day with delicious vegetarian specialities, such as fennel and pistachio salad, aubergine carpaccio and mushroom risotto. However, it doesn’t stop here; the vegetarian afternoon tea, served in the opulent tearoom, can make guests feel like true royalty. The extravagant menu presents a rich variety of niche patisserie, such as scones and luxury sandwiches including a tosti with kimchi and cheddar, a brioche with beetroot and feta and a mini falafel burger. The Duchess’s vegetarian options are becoming so popular thanks to their superiority, that even carnivores are tempted away from less adventurous meat options.
