Behind an inconspicuous doorway in The Chinnery at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, The Krug Room boasts an exclusive culinary experience as the only restaurant in the world that pairs a prestigious menu with various Krug champagnes.

Despite having only a maximum capacity of 12 seats, its exclusivity has never withheld culinary maestro Chef Uwe Opocensky from surprising diners with his unimagined levels of inventiveness and artistry in the dining area since it opened in 2006.

In April, a collaboration between two Michelin-starred chefs, Executive Chef Uwe Opocensky and Chef Hiroyuki Kanda of the eponymous restaurant, Kanda in Tokyo, will see the pair offer guests a 12-course menu that is available for just four days, from 9 to 12 April 2014.

Similar to The Krug Room in philosophy and esteem, Kanda is regarded as one of Tokyos leading kakureiga restaurants that are usually small and hard to find, with menus that are dictated by the chef according to the seasons freshest ingredients.

In the Krug meets Kanda 12-course promotion, the menu displays a unique crossover of Uwes progressive gastronomy and Kandas traditional Japanese culinary concepts through playful elements as yuzu and tonkatsu, as well as Uwes always inventive dishes such as Spring Garden that evoke not only an image and taste, but also emotion.

An ultimate Krug expression greets diners with their first dish with the mouth-watering Grande Cuve Washed Spiny Lobster with Krug Mayonnaise and Caviar that is immediately juxtaposed with the second dish, whereby Kanda infuses the traditional Japanese rice-wine, sake, with goose liver in Foie Gras Cured with Sake Lees and Yuzu Flavour.

Similar parallels between East and West cuisines are showcased throughout the entire experience, but it concludes symbolically in the Slow Cooked Miyazaki Beef Cutlet with Water Cress and Seaweeds by marrying the different cultures together in one dish.

Available only from 9 to 12 April 2014, reservations can be made now through Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong.

At HK$3,988 + 10% per person, guests can sample the Krug meets Kanda package that comprises two glasses of Krug Grande Cuve, a glass of Krug Vintage 2000 and a glass of the House of Krugs recently launched Krug Vintage 2003.

For HK$6,888 + 10% per person Krug lovers can savour The Magic 3, a themed package that includes various rare Krug vintages including a glass of Krug Grande Cuve, and a glass of the Krug Clos du Mesnil 1983, Krug Collection 1973 Magnum and the Krug Vintage 2003. This package is only for parties of 10 or more guests.
