Matcha Sweets Buffet Delights at Hotel New Otani Makuhari in Chiba

01.April.2019 | FOOD / SPOT

Hotel New Otani Makuhari is set to delight all with its premium buffet stuffed with desserts made with Kyoto’s famous Uji matcha tea. It will run every day from April 27 to May 6 after which it will run on weekends and holidays only up to July 7.

Uji matcha is known for its rich flavour and slight bitterness. Those distinct notes are made even richer when combined with desserts. Hotel New Otani Makuhari invites everybody into the palate-tingling world of Uji matcha with its delicate taste whether it be in the luxurious Uji Matcha Roll Cake or sumptuous Uji Matcha Tiramisu.

A must-try dessert is the New Edo Dainagon Shortcake crafted by the hotel’s grand chef Shinsuke Nakajima. It is part of his “Edo Sweets” series in which he takes traditional Japanese sweets and ingredients and skillfully makes them into something contemporary.

 

Also on the menu is the Super Melon Shortcake and Super Chocolate Shortcake. These are part of the “Super Series” which makes use of only the best, carefully selected ingredients. This series has made its mark to the extent that it has even been picked up by Japanese news media.

 

One slice of any of these shortcakes―pictured above―can be enjoyed at the hotel’s SATSUKI bakery. The buffet will also allow you to enjoy as many of the other cakes as you want too all of which are normally priced from ¥1,500.

In addition to the matcha buffet, a dinner service will be carried out in front of customers by the chefs with a menu that includes roast beef, teppanyaki, sushi, tempura and more. Pick from 25 options that span Japanese, Western and Chinese cuisine.
