Yamazato Sparkles with Traditional Tanabata Festive Fare

           The Tanabata festival, based on the celestial love story of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi who are represented in the legend by the stars Vega and Altair respectively, traditionally takes place across Japan in July and early August. Also known as the Star festival because of this heavenly link, activities during Tanabata include decorating homes, shopping malls, and streets with colourful streamers and boys and girls writing their wishes on strips of paper which are then hung from trees and bamboo. 
          Tanabata is a time for family gatherings and food plays an important part during the festival. Which is why award-winning Yamazato restaurant at The Okura Prestige Bangkok is marking the occasion with traditional Tanabata Gozen lunch platters and Kaiseki dinner with a twist. A number of the dishes feature decorations and ingredients with a Tanabata theme such as seasonal sweet corn and hair tail fish. In addition to delicious soups and noodles, also on offer are wonderfully fresh sashimi, tempura, and grilled dishes. Diners can enjoy a Gozen starter of mussels, shrimp and star-shaped paprika with yogurt egg yolk sauce, and a dish of duck with shimeji mushrooms and star-shaped vegetables. Highlights of the 8-course Kaiseki dinner include vermicelli with seasonal sweet fish (ayu), a hearty soup of pike eel dumplings, and a main dish of Spanish mackerel with spicy miso leek sauce.
          The Tanabata festival at Yamazato runs from 2 - 29 July 2018, lunch 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., dinner: 6 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. Priced at Baht 1,300++ for Gozen lunch and Baht 4,500++ for Kaiseki dinner.
