Set in a heritage shophouse on Mohamed Sultan Road, Esora is a kappo-style fine dining restaurant helmed by Head Chef Takeshi Araki and Chef de Cuisine Noboru Shimohigashi. It is a place that epitomises an affinity with nature & attention to detail, to create a heartfelt dining experience that resonates beyond the dining table.
Emotive and imaginative, Esora showcases Modern Japanese cuisine guided by an affinity with nature. Here, the chefs are storytellers and every dish is an intimate tale of nostalgia, seasonality and sheer fanaticism.
Esora is a warm and welcoming space, where the chef-guest relationship is always at the forefront. The main counter sits below a skylight dressed in Japanese washi paper—a feature that pays tribute to the endless possibilities of cloud formations in the open sky that inspires the cuisine at Esora. It is also a reference to the restaurant’s name, in ‘painting in the sky’ in Japanese.
Set to open palates and minds, Esora presents a dedicated tea-pairing programme, the first of its kind in Singapore. The selection is an elegant expression of nature’s essence, and an ode to the people who have dedicated themselves to the perfect brew. Each blend is specially selected and refined to create a complementary flight to each meal that embodies a balance of precision and emotion.
