We invite you to enjoy a sensory journey through the flavors of Japan at the Indochine Culinary Festival held from August 12th to 20th, 2021. Savor in the inventive creations of our renowned Chef Alicia Padilla García, perfectly complemented by pairings of Sake NAMI.
At NIZUC Resort & Spa, all our gastronomic journeys are thoughtfully curated for a wide variety of tastes to provide our guests with an unforgettable experience led by our team of international master chefs.
This year’s highly anticipated festival at Indochine will let you discover authentic Japanese flavors imbued with touches of our Mexican Spirit. The cuisines will captivate your epicurean senses with aromatic flavors and aromas from the East.
NAMI,the first Mexican sake made using the traditional Japanese technique, will be the official pairing partner for the event. The secret to NAMI’s distinctive taste comes from the Koji process. It is believed that those who enter the room where the rice rests for three days, should be in a state of peace with right-minded intentions and speaking positive words in order for the rice to absorb the good energy and turn it into a tasteful Sake. When it comes to NAMI, it’s the dedication of Mexican craftsmen whose passion and joy are reflected in the unique taste characteristics that make NAMI a top quality artisanal Mexican Sake.
The experience begins with a spectacular first course of Toro Nigiri, with tuna belly, Negi, and fresh wasabi accompanied by Haiku Beer.
Up next is Maguro Indochine, our signature tuna roll with medium fatty tuna, kiuri, and homemade yuzu kosho, and truffle oil accompanied by Matcha Tea.
The third course is Hiramasa, a yellowtail kingfish cured with yuzu and tangerine, citrus puree, coriander seed, and nori seaweed.
The gastronomic journey continues with Uni, a delicious cream of sea urchin, salmon roe, and green and white asparagus with a glass of Nami Junmai Sake.
The palate is prepared for Hotate-Katsuo, pan-sealed scallop, mashed cauliflower, and coriander puree with bonito foam, perfectly accompanied by Nami Junmai Ginjo Sake.
It is time to cleanse your palate with Sha Betto, a honeydew Sorbet, which readies you for the Gyu-Hire, beef smoked with walnut wood, creamy edamame puree, beef jus, and Japanese mushrooms accompanied by the bold Nami Junmai Daiginjo Sake.
Conclude this memorable evening with Dezato, a delectable apricot mousse with miso & corn ice cream accompanied by a cup of Nixta, made with coffee and agave honey.
