Authentic yet inventive, Kisso Japanese Restaurant at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit emphasizes offering lovers of Japanese cuisine the true taste of Japan according to each season’s specialties.

Now, true to its motto, ‘To Everything A Season’, as summer reaches its peak, Kisso is sourcing two premium oceanic delicacies – Hamo and Ishidai fish – to inspire a supplementary menu of dynamic dishes offered throughout this July and August 2019.

Hamo (Pike Conger)
A white-meat fish from the eel family with a mild, light flavor, Hamo, or Pike Conger, is believed to have invigorating qualities. Its finicky preparation puts people off making it at home: some 3,500 tiny bones have to be removed before the fish can be sliced very thinly with a special hamokiri-bocho knife.

Enjoy: Hamo Konabe, thinly-sliced pike cnger fish fillet with vegetables in paper hot pot ; Kinoko no Dobinmushi, pike conger fish fillet and clear mushroom soup in Japanese teapot; Hamo Tempura, pike conger fish fillet tempura served with plum paste and warm soy sauce; an dHamo Nigiri Sushi .

Ishidai (Strip Beakfish)
Another rare fish, ishidai doesn’t show up much on sushi menus. A small fish found in shallow Japanese waters, it features distinctive black and white stripes. It has a clean, sweet flavor and good, tasty fat content.
Enjoy: Ishidai Otsukuri, striped beak fish sashimi; Ishidai no Nabe Shabu-shabu, striped beak fish fillet in hot pot, and; Takenoko no Kinome Miso, striped beak fish marinated with miso and bamboo shoot.
