Celebrate Japanese Gastronomy at Oishii Japan

ASEAN's largest Japanese F&B showcase Oishii Japan returns this 22nd to 24th October for its fourth edition. Expect almoost 300 exhibitors representing 42 out of 47 prefectures in Japan and showcasing over 500 new food produce, specialties and machinery!

Visitors can attend demonstrations, workshops and also sample some of Japan's finest produce from fresh vegetables and fruits to premium meats and seafood. Look out for unique products such as the Sanuki olive-fed wagyu from Kagawa and the red snow crabs from Tottori.

I love the Amadai tile fish served at the Oishii Japan media preview at Lewin Terrace, with its full crispy-scales glory. Moohehe. By the way, Japanese-French fusion restaurant Lewin Terrace will be one of 50 Japanese restaurants in Singapore to offer special dining promotions from now until 24 October as a lead up to Oishii Japan 2015.

Besides food, there will be a special focus on shochu this year in a bid to promote the distilled spirit which is very popular in Japan but not as well known here. Shochu has a higher alcohol content compared to sake and can be made from sweet potato, rice or barley.

Visitors to Oishii Japan will be able to taste many varieties of shochu and pick up tips on enjoying this versatile beverage which can be consumed neat, on the rocks, with a mixer or incorporated into cocktails.

Thank you, Ninemer Public Relations for the invitation to the media preview.
