Kaiseki-ryori 懷石料理 is a multi-course Japanese dinner that is equivalent to Haute Cuisine in French cuisine. It features the ingredients of the season and showcase a whole array of style of the chef de cuisine. You never would have the same Kaiseki twice. If you are in Japan, you have to try this at least once, even though it would set you back between ¥8,000~18,000 ($120 ~$2,500) depending on the ingredients.
Even so, it’s still cheaper than most Kaiseki in Singapore which is around $250~$400.
Typical it will come in the following courses – a selection of appetisers (boiled, stew, marinated), sashimi, a fried dish (tempura), a grilled dish, a steamed or cooked dish, a noodle or rice dish and dessert.
