A night of up-close culinary experience with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa


World-renowned Chef Nobu Matsuhisa will be in Manila to host “The Nobu Experience”, a one-night culinary affair at his eponymous restaurant at City of Dreams Manila on March 31, from 5pm to 11pm.

Chef Nobu’s visit in Manila caps his month-long promotional tour of nine key cities around the world including Manila – London, Milan, Munich, Paris, New York, Melbourne, Perth, and Kuala Lumpur.

“The Nobu Experience” will showcase Japanese-Peruvian fusion artistry in the selection of handcrafted finger food and other dishes to be served in strategic stations: the sushi bar for cold dishes, robatayaki station for charcoal-grilled meats and seafood, teppan table for meat carving items, salmon and shrimps, and a dessert corner for signature pastries, sorbets and specialty desserts.

The experience will have the guests moving around the room, interacting with him and Nobu Manila’s chefs, indulging in dishes that are passed around canapé style, complementing those exquisitely on a buffet counter, or prepared a la minute in live action stations.
