Known as one of the world’s best restaurants, Noma has recently moved to the Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo, Japan, for a two-month residency that offers diners a spectacular 15-course fixed menu.
One of the main attractions from its tasting menu is an imaginative dish that consists of raw shrimps topped with tiny, wild black ants.
According to a reviewer from The Japan Times, that ants’ “little pinpricks of sharp acidity” were a perfect complement to the “sweet, pink flesh” of the raw prawns.
Other palate-challenging dishes offered by Noma include the ‘Fermented black garlic leather’ and soba noodles made with raw squid.
Would you dare to give these dishes a try? Prices for the fixed menu, including wine pairing, cost approximately US$550 per head.
