Chef Mario Payán leads Reach for the Stars Asian Edition dinner

Cocktails by Cesar Montilla complement the evening

The Reach for the Stars Asia Edition dinner series continues on September 23 with an evening of oriental flavours led by Mario Payán, currently considered “the most complete chef in Japanese gastronomy in Spain”, and hosted by chefs Diogo Ribeiro and António Muniz at the Mizu Teppanyaki restaurant at Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa in Porches.

With a deep knowledge of Japanese gastronomic techniques and traditions, combined with a strong sense of purism, Mario Payán blends these characteristics with a unique omakase menu that has become the traditional essence of the Kappo restaurant in Madrid, where he has been since 2016.

Dinner can be booked from 7pm, with a tasting menu for €125 pp and the possibility of wine and sake pairing for €75 pp.
