New Kamameshi Restaurant Requires You To Wait 18 Mins For Rice To Cook At Your Table
Dining at Hanare by Takayama requires patience.
During a time where fast food reigns, having to wait patiently for your food to be cooked is rare — almost even frowned upon. But kamameshi, the traditional Japanese dish that consists of rice cooked with toppings in an iron pot called a kama, is not for impatient diners. This is especially so at the upcoming new kamameshi specialist Hanare by Takayama at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, where our order comes with specific instructions to “refrain from opening the kamameshi lid before the fire is out”.
