Meaning “aristocratic craftsmanship”, Ki-sho 葵匠 reflects a value deeply ingrained in every aspect of the dining journey we intend for our guests. From the architecture of the building and the vessels that contain the food, right down to the seasonally inspired ingredients you savour and the sake you sip, Ki-sho 葵匠 is a culinary showcase for Japanese artisanship delivered with omotenashi.
Set in a heritage black-and-white bungalow along Scotts Road that once served as a residence for colonial era civil servants, Ki-sho 葵匠 offers a kappo-style dining room with an L-shaped hinoki wood counter that sits 11 guests. Additionally, two dining rooms – for eight and 12 guests respectively – on the upper deck offer guests an exclusive space to dine in complete privacy.
“There is a lot to be said about the power of food, for myself and my guests. The changing of seasons and, with it, the transition of ingredients, inspire me to look inwards, to reflect and to find momentum in life. It re-energises me to seek out the bounty of the season and to explore new ways of cooking them to delight my guests. While food replenishes one’s energy physically, I want my cuisine to bring harmony to one’s senses and to replenish the soul.”
