[Hong Kong] Special Anniversary Meal at Hanare はなれ
Rating: ❤❤❤❤1/2 (4.5/5)
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to try a special menu featuring the award-winning Ibaraki Ken Hitachi Wagyu beef 茨城県產常陸牛 in celebration of Hanare's first anniversary in Hong Kong! Hailing from Tokyo, Hanare is an exclusive chef’s table experience inside Yakiniku Jumbo with only 8 seats serving a Wagyu-centric kaiseki, and we were lucky enough to have owner chef Nanbara San cook for us that day. The Hitachi Wagyu beef comes from cows which have been raised for over 30 months while feeding on superior nutritious ingredients in Ibaraki such as barley, wheat, corn and soybeans. What you get is beef that is tender and rich in flavors; every single cut was phenomenal and I’m still reminiscing about it even though it has been weeks.
I have been to Yakiniku Jumbo Hanare in Tokyo and while the Tokyo one is casual and rustic, the Hanare in Hong Kong is more posh and chic with dark walls and gold trimmings. When I walked into the dining room that day, all the drool-worthy ingredients for our meal were already laid out on the counter for our eyes to feast on.
