Awarded One Michelin Star in 2021 Zuicho offers an immersive and interactive Japanese culinary experience centered around refined “kappo” cuisine, prepared from the finest ingredients sourced daily from Japan.
Kappo, literally meaning ‘to cut and to cook,’ is a multi-course, multi-sensory meal that is curated entirely by the chef, offering a less formal cuisine emphasizing the closeness between the chef and his guests. A master kappo chef has a command of diverse cooking methods, a deep understanding of the seasonality and quality of ingredients, prioritizes presentation, and carefully curates the order of each dish in the meal. Kappo diners enjoy a mixture of both raw and cooked dishes as they observe and interact with the chefs throughout the meal, from just across a beautiful hinoki counter.
The restaurant’s environment is the perfect portal to experience an entertaining Japanese dining culture. A beverage list of wine and sake has been curated to perfectly complement the ever-changing seasonal menu courses.
Head Chef Fumio Suzuki is a traditional kappo chef, and a master of numerous cooking methods, all focused on drawing out the flavors of seasonal ingredients. A Tokyo native, he credits being born and raised in the center of Japan’s culinary scene with a sense of how impactful food and dining is to enjoying culture and life.
Chef Suzuki has spent the past twenty years honing his skills in Tokyo where he was head chef of the prestigious Kita-Ooji. Suzuki then further refined his skills as a chef at Ginza Uchiyama, famous for holding Michelin stars for over 10 consecutive years by serving the highest standard of sophisticated, Kyoto-based, kaiskei cuisine.
Chef Fumio looks forward to meeting each guest at Zuicho and feels blessed with the opportunity to share his style of kappo with Hong Kong.
