August, 2022, Dubai, UAE:
Authentic Japanese restaurant, Hidemasa, will be welcoming guests to celebrate six days of the joyful Obon Festival. To mark the occasion, the venue will be offering an exclusive set menu which will be available from Saturday, 13th until Friday, 19th August 2022. There will be no better place to gather with family and friends to enjoy delicious dishes paired with premium drinks, during the traditional festival.
The annual Obon Festival, also known as the “Bon Festival,” is a traditional Buddhist practice performed in Japan to pay respect to one’s ancestors. It began as a solemn commemoration of the idea that departed loved ones occasionally return in spirit. However, over time, it has expanded to include a variety of other typical fair elements, such as carnivals and games.
To kick off the special celebration, DIFC gourmands and casual diners can enjoy Edamame with Sea Salt over great conversation as a starter, and indulge in fresh Sake Carpaccioor a lightly seared Beef Tataki as mouth-watering appetizers. Alongside the appetizers, an assortment of Sushi & Sashimi will be served, or guests may opt for hot canapés such as crispy Hyokomame Gyoza or luscious Grilled Lemongrass Chicken Skewered. For the main course, those celebrating can savour tasty platters with the likes of succulent Saikyo Miso Marinated Black Cod or savoury Agedashi Tofu. All those delicious dishes can be paired with refreshing speciality Japanese house beverages. To end the exquisite meal, Hidemasa will offer show-stopping desserts like a tangy Matcha Tiramisu with Orange Sorbet or creamy Coconut Tapioca Pudding.
Make this year’s Obon Festival celebration a night to remember with loved ones at Hidemasa.
