Never been a huge fan of beer until I had a taste of Japanese premium beer, Kirin Ichiban. A sip of its unique taste which offers a smooth and rich flavor taste got me asking for more. Guess what?

Kirin Ichiban collaborated The Table, Isetan Lot 10 to specially curate Japanese cuisines made from premium and authentic seasonal ingredients, designed specially to complement Kirin Ichiban. A premium beer authentically crafted in Japan using 100% malt, Kirin Ichiban’s unique taste is a result from its innovative “First Press” brewing method. What’s “First Press” technique? It’s a unique technique, where only the first press of the malt liquid is used, exuding a pure, crisp taste with no bitter aftertaste.

Soup: Chicken Dumpling with Collagen Chicken Soup

A wholesome chicken broth that’s slow boiled for more than 6 hours with a fresh whole chicken extracting its full flavors and natural collagen. The juicy chicken dumpling made using Toriden’s secret recipe that mixes chicken gizzard with cabbage give extra texture and flavors to it.

Truffle with Toriden Tamago (Soft Boiled Egg with Chicken Miso)

Soft boiled egg is placed on a spread of chicken miso and topped with slices of black truffle. Its served cold and is cooked to perfection to reveal a perfectly runny yolk.

Matsukaze Yaki

This flat meatloaf of minced chicken is simply yummy. It’s a winter inspired dish using burdock root.



Grilled Yellowtail

Charcoal grilled and marinated in sweet teriyaki sauce, this yellowtail is subtly balanced with the sweet, crisp and mild flavors of Daikon (radish).
