Here's a glimpse of Hokkaido Autumn Festival at Carousel, Royal Plaza on Scotts

Royal Plaza on Scotts will be bringing Hokkaido cuisine back to the buffet counters of its award-winning restaurant, Carousel. From 11 to 19 October 2014, guests will be able to indulge in Hokkaido’s rich variety of fresh seafood and flavourful cuisine. The hotel has invited two distinguished Japanese guest chefs, from renowned Keio Plaza Hotel Sapporo’s Miyama Japanese Dining restaurant, to feature a selection of Hokkaido dishes in Carousel.

Chef Atsuhisa Yamamoto and Chef Masahiro Watabe will be preparing their signature dishes for guests during the promotion. Chef Yamamoto has spent more than 12 years studying Japanese cuisine at a traditional restaurant in Sapporo. He later held the title of Kitchen Department Head Chef of Akizu, Hokkaido Specialties restaurant of Keio Plaza Hotel Sapporo, and is now the Head Chef of Miyama Japanese Dining restaurant. He specialises in seafood dishes and often visits fish markets all over Hokkaido to select the freshest ingredients to bring the finest flavours of the season to the tables. His dishes are so popular that he has been invited to present his specialties on many television programmes in Japan.

Chef Watabe, who is joining Chef Yamamoto, will be showcasing his culinary expertise with a sumptuous variety of dishes. He specialises in Nimono, a simmered dish in Japanese cuisine that consists of a base ingredient simmered in flavoured shiru stock. With his culinary expertise, he has won a multitude of awards from various Japanese cuisine contests in Hokkaido.

Guests can look forward to sampling authentic Hokkaido cuisine with signature dishes from the two guest chefs, such as Ishikari-nabe (Hokkaido-style Hot Pot with Salmon and Vegetables), Akisake Chan-Chan Yaki (salmon and fresh vegetables grilled with Miso paste and ginger; Teppanyaki specialty of Fisherman’s Town in Hokkaido), Kani-iri Dashimaki Tamago (Japanese omelette with crab and Bonito stock) and Sanma no Yakumiae (fresh Pacific saury with condiments). Please see menu below.

Guests can also enjoy a traditional Taiko drums performance and learn more about the art of tuna slicing with a live demonstration on the first day of the promotion.

Hokkaido Autumn Festival promotion will be available at Carousel during the dinner meal period, from 6.30pm to 9.30pm, at $78++. Guests can contact Carousel at 6589 7799 or for enquiries and visit for online reservations.
