The Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort Montego Bay is bringing the enticing flavor and flair of the Far East to Jamaica with the opening of its newest dining option, Kenko Japanese Restaurant.
Located upstairs in the heart of the resort’s main building, Kenko features an inventive menu of Far East favorites prepared Teppanyaki style, affording guests the opportunity to be entertained by their chefs as part of the fine dining experience.
Kenko offers sit-down à la carte dining with full wait service in an elegant, sophisticated atmosphere complete with traditional Japanese music and décor. Menu starters include sushi, salads and soups, and diners are given a choice of three desserts – a homemade cheesecake infused with Japanese lemongrass and finished with strawberry and lime sauce, a baked green tea extract egg custard served with fresh fruits drizzled with caramel, or a fruit sorbet served with sesame tuile.
In-between, clients can enjoy decadent main courses expertly prepared right before their eyes. Some dishes include Tappan Lemon Chicken, Honey Ginger Scallops, Shrimp Teriyaki, and a Yakiniku Beef entrée featuring thin-sliced steak marinated in an apple soy sauce, teppan grilled to perfection. This is a highlight of the current choices, though menu options will change regularly to keep the dining experience fresh.
Dining at the new Kenko Japanese Restaurant is not included in the all-inclusive meal plan at the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort Montego Bay. A nominal charge of just $20 per person applies, and children 12 and under eat free. Resort elegant attire is required (flip-flops, t-shirts, shorts and bathing suits are not permitted), and smoking is not allowed.
Kenko is open Wednesday through Monday (closed Tuesdays) with four dinner seatings as follows: 6 p.m., 6:45 p.m. 7:30 p.m and 8:15 p.m. Reservations are required and can be arranged through the resort’s Guest Services Department. The first two seatings at 6 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. are open to adults and children 12 and under, while the later seatings at 7:30 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. are reserved for adults only (including teenagers).
