Fire-Bitter Water-Salty Wood-Sour Metal-Pungent Earth-Sweet I have crafted each course of this menu to reflect the Five Flavors of Asia. Although the dishes are not strictly traditional Asian, I'm certain my approach will be exciting and give you insight into the five elements that make up the Five Flavors of Asia.
