With the radiant sunbeam shining over, summer begins with shades of gold. Despite the reflecting sunlight which tints the sea surface into gold, ocean in fact contains numerous resources in the colour as well. Throughout the months of May and June, The Window Café is going to indulge you with two golden gems of the ocean. Kick off the summer with Golden Gems Seafood Buffet Dinner that features the gold-like sea urchin and fish maw.
Sea urchin, one of the top three delicacies in Japan, stands out itself with the robust hint of brine, custard-like creaminess and lingering umami. Rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals, sea urchin is highly nutritious and from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, the foodstuff can lower the chance of having cardio-diseases. Using the renowned sea urchin found in Hokkaido, the ingredient is in superior quality that spoils your palate.
Savor the distinctive earthy and briny tones from Baked King Prawn with Sea Urchin and Black Truffle. Grows naturally around the root of hazelnut bush, black truffle resembles a nutty aroma that echoes with the ocean scent brought by sea urchin. Presents in a creamy texture, the melt-in-the-mouth sea urchin on the other hand gives a contrast to the bouncy king prawn. Other recommended sea urchin dishes include Sea Urchin, Queen Crab and Salmon Cake with Potato Mashed, Char-grilled Tuna with Sea Urchin and Honey Citron and more.
Displaying in creamy golden, fish maw ranks as an ambrosia together with abalone, sea cucumber and shark’s fin. Fat and cholesterol free, fish maw is rich in collagen and well-beloved by women for its excellent skin repairing function.
Tonify yourself with Fish Maw and Chinese Caterpillar Fungus with Basil and Peanut Sauce on Ice. Renowned as an elixir, the antioxidant-rich Chinese caterpillar fungus aids in detoxification and strengthen our immune system. After stirring the fish maw and Chinese caterpillar fungus with the a-little-bit-minty basil, the cold dish is so refreshing and best relished during summer. Other recommendations include Braised Fish Maw with Chicken, Prawn, Slices of Abalone and Mushrooms and more.
Consists of the two featured golden gems, Steamed Sea Urchin with Fish Maw, Hokkaido Egg White and Yoghurt demonstrates how the ingredients harmonize with each others.
