Showcasing the bounty of Japan’s Ishikawa
ISHIKAWA – well known for its hot springs, rugged landscapes and of course, pristine seafood from the western coast of Japan – came together in a neat package at a recent dinner hosted by Kenjiro “Hatch” Hashida at his eponymous restaurant in Mandarin Gallery.
Ishikawa is one of the more active prefectures in Singapore, holding regular events to promote their produce, so it was only natural for them to link up with a high-end Japanese restaurant to present its highlights on a plate. Hashida’s chefs didn’t disappoint, with a roll call of seasonal appetisers to sashimi platters and the highlight – Koubako crab or “box” crab which are female snow crabs indigenous to Ishikawa and prized for their fleshy meat and roe that are packed tightly into their shells.
