Over the next month, Akai Doa 2.0 will play host to a culinary collaboration you don’t want to miss

The theatrical Japanese dining experience, Akai Doa 2.0 has made a real impression since returning to Las Vegas on K’Road. With various light installations by Angus Muir setting a celebratory tone and delectable degustations by Azabu’s Head Chef, Yukio Ozeki, keeping punters impressed, the pop-up has, despite only opening a few months ago, already hosted a number of acclaimed culinary events. But none has been as hotly-anticipated as the one that is set to start this Friday and run throughout the month of June.

Looking to take Akai Doa 2.0 up another notch, Yukio Ozeki is joining forces with acclaimed chefs, Kyle Street and Jordan Macdonald from Culprit and the resulting event is shaping up to be the ultimate culinary collaboration. Beginning this Friday, 6th June, and running until 11th July, Akai Doa x Culprit will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and will see head-to-head culinary battles where the chefs will engage in one-upmanship to tantalise diners’ taste buds. Comprising eight courses in total (Street and Macdonald will create four courses, as will Ozeki), the menu is expected to be an intriguing, experimental Asian-fusion affair, making the event a gastronomic experience you won’t want to miss.
