10 Dec PLH’s FOOD BUDDHA opens Me Geisha in Rome, Italy
Me Geisha Sushi Bar opens in Rome early December 2015 by PLH’s the Food Buddha- Rodelio Aglibot.
Rodelio has just landed in Rome with the new restaurant ME GEISHA, Luxury Japanese Fusion Restaurant in via dei Filippini.
Not your usual Japanese restaurant, not a Chinese copy, but a concept of Asian cuisine that mixes different flavors – and which has already depopulated overseas. The cooking philosophy, that of dishes look great, good to eat and that instill well-being.
The decisive impulse that convinced Aglibot Chef to open a restaurant in Rome was the quality and variety of local produce, for a fusion infusion, that mixes ingredients Made in Italy with Asian dishes. “Given the wide availability of ingredients and seasonality, the menu of ME GEISHA will expand and evolve over time. I am in contact with local butchers for meat. I made long walks in the markets in the morning to study seasonal vegetables: Eggplant, mushrooms, onions, peppers, squash, herbs. Also the seafood will be local, the tuna is from Sicily and some specialty fish we catch in Japan.”
This is the menu of the GEISHA to sample the Sunomono (cucumber salad) with sea bass glazed with Mirin, puffed rice covered with tuna and Bacon, a rich pork broth Ramen, chicken and ham (36 hours) with poached egg, Napa cabbage, scallions, seaweed and onions, shrimp Tempura and the Hamachi with Ponzu sauce Japanese and Mandarin. Sweet, spicy and umami made with Italian raw and Japanese style.
