As the vibrant pink cherry blossoms bloom along the scenic terrains of Japan, it marks the beginning of the annual Japanese Sakura Festival. Known also as the Japanese Hanami Festival, the celebration heralds the arrival of the spring season that captures the blooming of the beautiful and delicate cherry blossoms across the country. These legendary flowers represent the spirit of renewal, friendship and the ephemeral nature of life itself, reminding us to cherish every moment of life’s wonderful encounters.
Nobu KL Hanami High-Tea
In conjunction with the Hanami celebrations, Nobu Kuala Lumpur have since launched their Hanami High-Tea, which will take place across the first four weekends of April this year (1st & 2nd April, 8th & 9th April, 15th & 16th April, 22nd & 23rd April). Inspired by the delicate nature of the cherry blossoms, the artistic presentation and exquisite flavors of the Nobu KL Hanami High-Tea captures the essence of Hanami perfectly, allowing guests to indulge in a sensory experience that is sure to delight and inspire.
“The Japanese Sakura Festival is a huge annual celebration in Japan. During this season, the weekends are usually spent eating, drinking and barbecuing amongst friends and family underneath clouds of flourishing cherry blossoms. It is a time to appreciate our loved ones and to be grateful of our lives and the nature surrounding it. That is why my talented team of chefs and I believe in the importance of highlighting those values within this Hanami High-Tea that we are debuting. It is an intimate experience of flavor that can and should be enjoyed with the people we treasure most. I am infinitely proud of my team, as we were successful in encompassing the beauty and simplicity of spring within this 3-course Hanami experience,” said Chef Philip, Head Chef of Nobu Kuala Lumpur.
This exclusive menu boasts Japanese classics with a modern combination of simplicity and palate-cosseting luxury, showcasing the culinary expertise of the restaurant’s skilled chefs. With dishes such as the Wagyu Sando, King Crab with Spicy Ponzu Chukka Ramen and an indulgent White Goma Mochi with Sakura Tea Cremeux, guests can expect a delightful combination of complex textures and sumptuous flavors. Along with that, enticing wine and cocktail packages are present within the high-tea menu as well. The Nobu Hanami High-Tea menu is the perfect way to pamper your loved ones with a Japanese-inspired afternoon tea experience that is both authentic and lavish.
Being one of the most renowned Japanese franchises worldwide, not many other places appreciate the significance of the Japanese Sakura Festival like Nobu Kuala Lumpur. The bright and vibrant colors of the season, spirits of togetherness, fulfilling meals with loved ones, and embracing the rich traditions of such a hallmarked Japanese cultural celebration can only truly be felt here. We have put a lot of hard work into developing our Hanami High-Tea menu and we are proud of what we will be showcasing to the Malaysian culinary scene this upcoming month.” said Alexander Tito, General Manager of Nobu Kuala Lumpur.
