八寸 Hassun @ しのはら Shinohara, Shiga, Japan. Shinohara is one of the top 8 kaiseki restaurants in the entire Japan based on tabelog and while I don’t always agree with tabelog rating, it is also highly recommended by Takamura san from 日本料理 たかむら (秋田) Takamura in Akita, another top 8 kaiseki in Japan which I visited in winter (posts in #littlemeg_takamura ). My BFF had visited before and loved it, and this time he brought us here to introduce to us what many local gourmets and chefs considered as the best young and rising chef in Japanese cuisine. Another reason why I wanted to try Shinohara is because Shinohara san came from 招福楼 本店, the kaiseki temple in Shiga where many most famous kaiseki chefs, including Japan’s no. 1 Matsukawa came from. This meal and Takamura are the proofs that extremely high level of kaiseki are not limited to Tokyo and Kyoto. In fact they are some of the nation’s best. Detailed posts to come!
