PARCO Singapore will host the ‘Washoku’ appeal for the first time in Singapore! PARCO x “Al Quecciano” Chef Masayuki Okuda special event on the 10th anniversary of “Washishi” UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage
PARCO (Singapore) Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PARCO Corporation, celebrated the 7th anniversary of its Japanese restaurant “Itadakimasu by PARCO” in Singapore and the 10th anniversary of “Japanese Cuisine” registration as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. Mr. Masayuki Okuda, owner and chef of Al-Checciano, a restaurant active in Tsuruoka, a UNESCO Capital of Creative Gastronomy Culture, will hold a special event in Singapore on Saturday, March 18. Mr. Okuda will be honored by the authoritative French restaurant guide ” Gault Millau 2023 Grand Prix Terroir. This is the first project after winning the award.
Itadakimasu by PARCO brings Japanese cuisine to Singapore with the concept of “Enjoy the taste of Japan every day”, and it is very important that “Japanese traditional Japanese food culture” is listed as an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO. I’m proud of it. PARCO Singapore decided to carry out this project in this landmark year with the theme of “Spreading the Circle of Peace and Smiles Through the Deliciousness of Japanese Food” and hopes to convey the charm of Japanese food to Singaporeans in a new way. .
In addition to Itadakimasu by PARCO, PARCO Singapore also provides special coffee shops such as “Jurassic World Cafe” and “Minion Cafe” for a limited time in the local area, providing a richer life in Singapore through delicious food. Starting with this new initiative by Chef Okuda, we will continue working on a wider “food culture creation project” based on Itadakimasu by PARCO.
Through PARCO Singapore, PARCO Co., Ltd. will promote activities to further enhance the Japanese brand by disseminating various attractive Japanese contents involved in our domestic business overseas.
