Michelin-trained Japanese chef Yusuke Kitade promising exceptional Japanese cuisine with a trendy contemporary twist at The Parkside – opening in mid-February 2021
Hong Kong – Stellar Michelin-style Japanese dining is migrating to Tseung Kwan O with the opening of IZAKAYA BY K at The Parkside in mid-February 2021.
Michelin-trained Japanese chef Yusuke Kitade promises exceptional Japanese cuisine with a fashionable contemporary twist at the cozy izakaya modeled after Tokyo’s legendary ‘after work’ social hubs – convenient for local residents of the ‘new town,’ and a new destination-dining hotspot for adventurous aficionados to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Hong Kong.
A protégé of Michelin-star chef Shohei Shimono of à nu retrouvez-Vous Tokyo, he now revives his signature Haute modern Japanese cuisine at the new destination-dining hotspot in Tseung Kwan O, presenting classic traditional izakaya fare using fresh seasonal ingredients, from hot and cold specialties to skewers.
Signature specialties on the menu include Wagyu Beef Pot Rice, with top-grade Miyazaki filet A4 and with a twist of Madeira sauce, and Chef Yusuke’s “reimagined” traditional izakaya cuisine with a Midas touch for specialties including Fatty Tuna Tartare with Avocado Paste, Marinated Egg Yolk, topped with caviar.
Tender and juicy, the artfully deboned Chicken Wing “Karaage” is seasoned with ginger and garlic, soy sauce, and dashi. Simultaneously, Sliced Pork Roll Up with Soft Boiled Egg is also a novel upgrade of izakaya fare, requiring lengthy and delicate preparation to showcase chef skills and techniques.
Exquisite yet affordable set menus offer lunch and dinner options, with a la carte specialties from appetizers, tempura and skewers, and more.
IZAKAYA BY K’s premium quality menu is co-curated by a fellow veteran of Michelin-starred restaurants in Japan and à nu retrouvez-Vous in Hong Kong, Sushi Chef Yuki Kai, specializing in fusing the beauty and simplicity of freshest ingredients of traditional Japanese cuisine with contemporary flair and exuberance.
In izakaya’s spirit, the restaurant manager is also the Sake Sommelier, working with chefs on food pairing and introducing diners to hidden gems from Japan’s extensive sake world.
A fox statue at the entrance and playful interior décor of 150 fox figurines and paintings pay homage to design inspired by Japan’s 30,000 Inari shrines, where the fox ‘kitsune’ is revered messenger of the mythological god and symbol of prosperity and success. The theme extends to the restaurant’s signature inari (“fox”) sushi.
The 2,600-square feet, 125-seat restaurant is also divided into various zones and semi-private dining areas for a cozy social vibe, perfect for various gatherings, from family dinners and small celebrations to social gatherings and dinner dates.
IZAKAYA BY K is opening in mid-February 2021 alongside with sister restaurant TEPPANYAKI MIHARA next door.
IZAKAYA BY K is located at Shop G07, The Parkside, 18 Tong Chun Street, Tseung Kwan O, New Territories, Hong Kong – open daily from 12:00 noon – 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. For inquiries or reservations, please call (852) 3618-8211 or email [email protected]
