We served 21 dishes from 20 different countries, such as Thailand's "Som Tam," a salad made with green papaya, or "Sate Ayam," an Indonesian-style yakitori. Also, in a space on the 2nd floor, we held a tuna carving event! 200 servings of roast beef and pork soup were served to visitors free of charge. Additionally, visitors were able to enjoy meals with drinks from Suntory's The Premium Malts and ROKU.
