For Italian and Japanese inspired fusion try the Light Smoked Lobster and Potato Potage, Battarga or dried fish roe withPotato Cappuccino and Green Sauce, Fresh Salmon Confit, Asparagus and Ikura or Salmon Roe Salad, Japanese Wagyu Beef Tagliata, Chinese Kale, Daikon Cake, Tapanade and for dessert Matcha Tiramisu and Kuromame Catalanai.
From Master Chef Nobu himself, try Kue or seasonal Japanese Garoupa Sashimi, Blood Orange Caviar, Sateamed Local Garoupa in a new style, Clear soup with Bamboo Shoots and Sakura Ebi Shinjyo or seasonal small shrimp from Japan cooked in cherry blossoms followed by an assortment of Sushi. For dessert, try the Peanut Crumble, Nobu Beer Ice Cream and Jasmine Peach Soup.
