Beige by Alain Ducasse**

Want a romantic dinner?

Located at the Chanel building in Ginza, Beige by Alain Ducasse is a two-starred Michelin restaurant which uses fine Japanese ingredients for its modern French cuisine. The interior uses various materials such as wood, silver, and gold, coupled with warm lighting to provide a cozy ambiance.

Dinner offers three options, a three or a four-course menu and a tasting menu; we chose the three-course menu (¥14,000). First we had the welcoming snacks and amuse-bouche, both used various vegetables and sour sauce that gave a freshening taste. For appetiser, I chose sautéed Kurumaebi prawn, mango and cucumber, coriander condiment. I was quite surprise that they used mango as a side and the taste accidentally matched. The main dish was poached blue lobster with quick-sautéed courgette from Kamakura, the lobster was really tender and I was in love with the red onion garnish. Lastly I chose pistachio soufflé with cherry sorbet for my dessert, I was a little bit dissapointed with the soufflé as it wasn’t soft enough. The petit fours and chocolate was really good, especially the yuzu profiterole.

And citron flavoured macarons as a leaving gift, who doesn’t love macarons? Beige made my day.

想要一個浪漫晚餐?

開在銀座Chanel的Beige by Alain Ducasse是米芝蓮兩星的法國料理餐廳,每道菜都用上了日本的嚴選材料,非常精緻的現代料理。餐廳的室內裝飾大部分用了米色,銀,金,和木材的材料,配上柔和的燈光,很溫暖舒適。

晚餐提供三種選擇,分別是任選三道菜或四道菜,和品嚐菜單。我們點了三道菜的(¥14,000),在東京的最後一頓晚餐說真的點多肚子也沒有空間了。一上來是不能缺少的歡迎小點和開胃菜,都是以蔬菜為主,酸酸甜甜帶點清新的感覺。頭盤是油爆虎蝦配芒果,青瓜,和香菜,也是走清新鮮甜路線,芒果很鮮甜(青瓜自動忽略因為我不吃)。主菜是白灼藍龍蝦配油爆鎌倉西胡,龍蝦好嫩,很喜歡配菜裡的紅洋蔥。甜點好奇的點了開心果梳乎厘配櫻桃雪芭,有點小失望本來以為梳乎厘會像空氣一樣的,但這個一點空氣的感覺都沒有,不知道是改良過還是裡面加了開心果和櫻桃醬的關係。雖然甜點有點失望但我喜歡他們的小糖果和巧克力,尤其是那個柚子奶油泡芙。

離開的時候還送馬卡龍,Beige怎麼可能不讓女生心動。
