From Cheese to Japanese

Every year the Widder Hotel creates a very special Pop-Up Restaurant and this year is no exception. However, this Winter’s Pop-Up is totally different to the raclettes of recent years and has instead a Japanese twist!

Hot Pot à la façon Ruinart

“Oishii”, is the Japanese word for delicious and the “Hot Pot à la façon Ruinart” is a very special interpretation of this concept, combining Japanese cuisine with Ruinart Champagne, and a choice of Ruinart Brut, Blanc de Blancs and Rosé.

As soon as you enter the restaurant the Japanese feel is apparent. The vestibule is decorated with a host of red lanterns and inside the all the furniture has been designed by the UK interiors brand MADE.COM to transport you to a version of Japan in Zurich.

Japanese Salad as Starter

We began with the Japanese salad which was beautifully fresh and crisp and combined perfectly with a glass of Ruinart “R” Brut.

Next up we had the traditional Winter dish of “ShabuShabu”  which is served on the table like a fondue chinoise. The iron cooking pot contained Ito Konnyaku flour noodles in a tasty broth with pak choi and shitake mushrooms.

In a separate bowl we had thin slices of filet of beef, fish balls, giant prawns and salmon and we could use our chop sticks to simmer them gently in the pot.

The hot pot was complemented by a glass of Ruinart Rosé which had subtle notes such of ginger and cardamom which went very well with the main dish.

To finish off we had a delicious, fluffy Japanese dessert which is slightly reminiscent of a light version of English trifle.

So if you fancy something different from a traditional fondue or raclette, why not go Japanese for a change? It really is totally “oishii”!
