The Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre Debuts Its Inagiku Japanese Dining Experience Package

SHANGHAI, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- Jul 23, 2013 -- With a legacy stretching back to 1866 and an iconic status within the Japanese dining scene, Inagiku is one of those places that seems impossible to improve upon. And yet, at its location in the new Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre, the impossible has occurred. Combining its luxury accommodations with an eight-course dinner at this legendary restaurant, the Inagiku Japanese Dining Experience Package introduces guests to two remarkable Asian experiences.

Serving premium sashimi, sushi, teppanyaki and the tempura that made the restaurant famous, Inagiku at the Shanghai Marriott is helmed by Chef Mitsuru Tamura, an Osaka-born chef whose passion for arranging flowers appears in his flawless presentations on the plate. Guests who book the dining package will have the chance to see and taste this for themselves during the eight-course dinner for two that is included, along with a deluxe guestroom and breakfast for two daily. Considering that the Inagiku location in Hong Kong is known for lengthy waits just to get a reservation, this package presents one of those rare opportunities to bypass the crowds.

Guests at this business hotel in Shanghai will appreciate Inagiku's luxuriously understated décor, from the streamlined main dining room outfitted with navy blue and blonde woods, to the five private dining suites named after different types of Japanese porcelain. The crisp sleekness of the restaurant offers a calming antidote to the teeming streets outside, especially the nearby Nanjing Road, which is known as China's No. 1 Street.

So what exactly can guests expect to try at this Japanese restaurant in Shanghai? For starters, sea urchin paired with caviar; followed by shrimp cakes, matsutake mushrooms and citrus. From there, sashimi graces the table; crab works its way into egg custard; shrimps are rolled with tofu, pumpkin and eggplant; Australian Wagyu beef shares plate space with foie gras; shrimp tempura cozies up to a rice bowl; and chocolate cake finds an ideal partner in green-tea ice cream. This is one Shanghai hotel deal, in other words, your taste buds will thank you for.

The Inagiku Japanese Dining Experience Package requires a minimum two-night stay and costs RMB 1,780 per night. Of course, after such a memorable meal, guests will be in no hurry to leave, which is why late checkout (subject to availability) is also included. Some great things, it turns out, can indeed become even greater.
