Japanese-Peruvian Cuisine at Buddha-Bar Manila with Chef Shigeki Iimura

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Chef Shigeki Iimura, world renowned chef and Corporate Japanese Chef of Buddha-Bar group, visited Buddha-Bar Manila to introduce new Japanese-Pevuvian cuisines to its customers. That means more choices to choose from for those who love to spend their dinner at this cool restaurant in Makati.

The awesome culinary treat, held on May 20 and May 21, is a world-class experience since not everyday do we meet chefs from foreign lands. Not only were the dishes superbly appetizing on both their look and taste, but the opportunity to interview Chef Shigeki is something very memorable for me. I am always fascinated with individuals who possess a lot of creativity and chefs are known to be very imaginative and innovative in coming up with unique concepts that will surely make you want to keep coming back for more surprises from their kitchen.

Japanese-Prevuvian is also known as Nikkei cuisine, this particular type of cooking has its roots in South America, where there is a huge convergence of Japanese and Latin American culture. Best described as a fusion of Japanese food made with Peruvian ingredients and cooking technique, Nikkei cuisine has become a global food trend among many cities worldwide.

I was the early bird so I got to be the first to interview Chef Shigeki who was very willing to accommodate my request. Actually, the Restaurant General Manager was the one who arranged that I get that interview to make my time more productive. I knew that it might be a bit difficult oif I request for the interview later or at the end of the event.

The entire demonstration is a lengthy video so I decided to divide it into several parts and uploaded at our YouTube channel at . We also have another lengthy video containing our interview. This is also divided into several parts so as not to upload bigger size video files.

Chef Shigeki crafted a well-balanced and enticing mix of flavors for Buddha-Bar Manila’s authentic Japanese-Peruvian menu. These include sumptuous dishes such as Aji Tuna Ceviche Chifa, Sesame Seared Salmon Ceviche, and Aji Tuna Ceviche.

Diners can also feast on a choice of entrée: Miso Black Cod, Mixed Lentils, Black Corn Puree, Black Sesame Soufflé or Grilled Beef Tenderloin Steak with 3 Sauces. Other options for the entrée are Chilean Sea Bass, Wasabi Sauce, Green Tobiko and Ikura or 12 Spices Grilled Pork Ribs.

The sushi bar features a selection of Salmon Tiradito with Orange Aji Amarillo, White Fish Tiradito with Truffle Cream, Contemporary Ten Maki Roll, Strawberry Philadelphia Roll, Soft Shell XO Crab Roll, and Veggie Caterpillar Roll.

For dessert, enjoy a serving of Chocolate Coffee Mousse with Vanilla Miso Toffe or a contemporary twist to the classic Japanese Style Tiramisu.
