The pork is just as exceptional, using a superior chestnut-fed pork, known to be tastier than normal pork.
It is harvested from carefully selected pigs which enjoys a natural diet that contains chestnuts. This contributes to a tender juicy meat with a sweet nuance.
The use of binchotan in cooking these high-end meats is essential to the Aburi-EN experience. Otherwise known as Japanese white charcoal, binchotan is a type of quality and expensive highly dense charcoal made of high grade oak.
Because of its high carbon content, it is rendered odorless which allows the natural flavours of food to shine through.
Moreover, it burns slowly without flaring unlike lump charcoal and briquettes. This gives a deep smokiness to the meat minus the charred flavours.
