Quintessence カンテサンス

 

Quintessence is a 3 Michelin star French fusion restaurant and consistently ranked top 3 restaurants in all of Japan. It's such a renowned restaurant that it doesn't require any introduction, so it could be challenging to score a reservation. They only start accepting requests 2 months prior to your arrival date so try to plan ahead and call on the first availability date.

There is a dress code: Elegant Casual (For gentleman: Jacket is recommended attire. Short pants, tank top, sandals are forbidden). We went in the blazing hot summer so luckily a blazer/jacket is not required. 

3 Michelin star sounds expensive, but Quintessence has a budget lunch option:

Lunch - ¥10,260
Dinner - ¥21,600
Service charge of 10%

The tasting menu consists of 7 dishes that truly demonstrates Chef Shuzo Kishida's artistry. Simple presentations, but each dish is complex and mind blowing combinations. Just when you thought you had the best dish of your life, the next dish is presented. I guess that's the definition of 3 Michelin star. It's really a life changing experience. 

I don't want to ruin the surprise of each dish but the 3rd last picture is a dessert. It looked like a dab of olive oil and balsamic vinegar but it's actually coconut pudding, pistachio nut oil and expresso. Truly a masterpiece and mind blowing culinary experience!

We advised Quintessence we're celebrating our 5th year anniversary and Chef Shuzo Kishida's was kind enough to make us a delicate candy rose made out of sugar as a gift to us. It's so detailed and beautiful, I was so amazed and appreciate the kind gesture of Chef Shuzo Kishida. If you want to try a 3 Michelin Star without breaking the bank, this would be your best option! Highly recommend it!
