Potato cream with lapsang souchong and alba white truffle at @piazzaduomoalba 💫 our first time trying some top-quality white truffle, and we were surprised by its pleasingly delicate flavour. it perfectly complemented the creamiest of potato creams and the smokiness coming from the lapsang souchong.
Insalata 21... 31... 41... 51, one of the showstopping signature dishes at @piazzaduomoalba 🥬 this is not your usual salad: it consists of over 80 different types of leaves and edible flowers, which vary following the seasons. 🌱☘️all the elements of this dish come from chef enrico crippa’s own vegetable garden, and are assembled every day to create an incredible harmony of flavours. 🌸 we tried something similar at @zaiyuhasegawa’s den and @namaesan’s @leffervescence (both in tokyo), and have to say we found some unique elements we loved in each one of them.
Food in japan is amazing. @restaurant_florilege takes everything that is amazing about japanese food, and makes it better. probably the best food we’ve ever had in japan, at what is currently japan’s #2 best restaurant.
thanks especially to the amazing tetsuya @hohohotetete who explained all the dishes in perfect italian. thanks @hiroyasu_kawate for the incredible experience!
An array of refined small dishes welcomes us on our arrival at @piazzaduomoalba. these almost reminded us of the first course of a traditional japanese kaiseki feast, where you start the meal with exquisite bites of seasonal local produce.
Worth posting a couple of images of @piazzaduomoalba’s stunning dining room featuring a beautiful fresco by @clementestudio. piazza duomo, located in the heart of the langhe region in italy, has three michelin stars and it’s currently number 15 in the @theworlds50best restaurants list. 🎀
