The kanji for washoku (和食) are literally “harmony” and “food,”
Food is not just about fuel, it’s about an experience as much as it is about sustenance. We constantly think about our customer’s nutrition and experience guided by five simple principles that lead to harmony and balance:
Five colors: We strive to include five colors — red, yellow, green, black and white — using whole quality food, ensuring nutrition in every meal.
Five tastes: Salty, sour, sweet, bitter and spicy and a hidden taste called umami. When each taste is represented, palates are stimulated without being overwhelmed.
Five ways: Five preparations, such as roasting, simmering, steaming, frying and pickling.
Five senses: Engaging all senses: sight, sound and texture, as well as taste and smell.
Five outlooks: Of partaking in food, Gratitude, Wabi-Sabi, Community, Wellbeing and Positivity.
