He brings to Zipangu a taste of the traditional Japanese dishes, staying true to the roots of Japan as evident in his signature dishes. The chef has put together a menu of five signature dishes that range from seafood to fish, meat and rice. To this, he has also added a Japanese dessert with a Malaysian touch.

Let's break it down.

They begin with the exquisite Fresh Sea Urchin Pudding with Consomme Jelly and Caviar, moving on the New Zipangu Style Grilled Gindara with Saikyo Miso. Gindara is black cod which is deliciously grilled with creamy and sweet miso from Kyoto.

Chef Karasawa’s other signature main course is the Grilled Australian Wagyu ‘Kobe Premium’, Grilled Foie Gras and Seared Sea Urchin.

Another delectable treat awaits is the Rice with Corn and Truffles in a Claypot, Japanese pickles, Akadashi miso soup. Matcha Ice Cream and Rice Ball in Coconut Milk with Gula Melaka is the chef’s signature dessert.
