BANGKOK AMAZING GOURMET
Gourmet in an Ice Dome
For me Osaka is always the must-visit city in Japan, as epicurean knows it is the city of kuidaore (to become bankrupt as a result of one's overspend on eating and drinking), a word to describe Osaka people obsession with food. In Osaka, residents willing to spend more on food, thus became the center of gourmet in Japan.
Lucky (or unfortunate hahaha) in Bangkok we also have the chance for trying out kuidaore.
Nanohana, a fancy washoku restaurant with specialty on traditional Osaka cuisine, emphasizes on quality ingredients with the use of essential Osaka dashi (stock) and usukuchi shoyu (light soy suace) matching with skilled chefs culinary presentation. Enhanced by a sip of sake, a meal at Nanohana is both the upmost pleasure for our eyes and taste buds.
