La Rochelle Fukuoka – Japan

 

Dinner by Hiroyuki Sakai Iron Chef French

I have probably watched every episode of Iron Chef even now when I see an old episode on TV I still watch it. I like how it is made to seem so dramatic and the voice over just tops it all off. I found my self looking on the internet for places to eat in Fukuoka and to my surprise saw that Hiroyuki Sakai Iron Chef French has a restaurant close by so I had to try it out.

The menu at La Rochelle Fukuoka is in Japanese and French neither of which I can read however my French knowledge extends to the word degustation. Seeing this on the menu made it an easy choice the degustation it is.  At 12000 yen or about $120 AUD for the five courses considering the food it is reasonably priced defiantly  less than I was expecting.  

Not knowing what was going to come out made it more exciting! When a dish came out first tasting it and then trying and guess what it is and whats in it. The food was all excellent French style strong flavors , rich sauces lots of butter and cream. Exactly was you would expect from Iron Chef French.

Dessert Cart

Another unexpected thing was that dessert was not a fixed course but a whole cart was wheeled out and you could pick and choose what you wanted. The waiter was not just cutting up and serving it up rather taking great care and plating it up just like if it had come out of the kitchen.
