The Japanese restaurant “KATO’S DINING & BAR” at the Hotel New Otani (Tokyo) will offer the “ultimate shaved ice” “Satsuki shaved ice” for a limited time from Saturday, April 29, 2023 to the end of September.
Hotel New Otani’s “ultimate shaved ice”
In May, you can hear the footsteps of summer. At the Hotel New Otani (Tokyo), shaved ice, which can be said to be a summer tradition, will appear. The fluffy shaved ice, made with natural Nikko ice and carefully selected ingredients from the hotel, is a must-try in the summer.
In 2023, there will be a lineup of all three types, including “mango”, which is in season in early summer, and “strawberry” and “Wasanbon”, which are standard every year. Mango, a new addition to the group, is filled with mango jelly with pulp and black honey jelly, and is finished with plenty of mango arrowroot sauce for a finish that is irresistible for mango lovers. The bright yellow appearance is also attractive.
In addition, “Strawberry” is shaved ice with a 100% Amaou sauce that uses the pulp of Fukuoka’s special strawberry “Hakata Amaou”. No cream is used, so you can enjoy the original sweetness of strawberries and the texture of the pulp to your heart’s content.
“Wasanbon” is natural ice with shiratama (rice flour dumplings), yokan jelly, and brown sugar bean paste, topped with wasanbon sauce. The secret ingredient “moshio” enhances the soft sweetness of wasanbon sugar.
Enjoy the unique fluffy texture of “Nikko natural ice”
The “Nikko natural ice” used in all shaved ice contains no impurities, and when shaved, it becomes “soft and fluffy” like cotton candy. It has a smooth mouthfeel and doesn’t have the tingling sensation typical of shaved ice, so you can fully enjoy each flavor.
