The Shou Sugi Ban House culinary philosophy is born from our belief that true health is grounded in nature.
We believe in the healing power of plants and have chosen to embrace sustainability as a crucial aspect of the Shou Sugi Ban House experience. Our culinary team selects the finest locally sourced, organic foods based on hyper-seasonal collaborations with local growers and purveyors. Our biodynamic gardens are intentionally harvested to produce an array of leafy greens and superfoods that will be roasted, juiced and fermented.
Shou Sugi Ban House’s plant-rich culinary program was designed in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Mads Refslund, co-founder of Noma. His Nordic-inspired menu with Asian influences offers a deeply nourishing and artful dining experience.
Under guiding principles of wellness, sustainability and a no-waste philosophy, menus are inspired by the idea of eating closer to nature.
