The event lineup is as follows:

  • Dec. 3, 2021 – Yakiniku Night featuring grilled specialties including Japanese A5 (Sold Out)
  • Dec. 4, 2021 – Momokase Dinner featuring a paired tasting prepared by Chef Morimoto
  • Dec. 5, 2021 – 12 Beers of Christmas featuring holiday-themed brews and gourmet bites

On Friday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m., Morimoto Asia will host an outdoor Yakiniku Night with Chef Morimoto, featuring the finest grilled beef — including both Japanese A5 and American Wagyu — and the Ramen Rumble-winnning Surf ‘n’ Turf Ramen. Yakiniku Night is sold out.

On Saturday, Dec. 4, guests are invited to join Chef Morimoto for a once-in-a-lifetime evening with Yamazaki 55 Monokase, featuring one of the oldest and rarest Japanese whiskies in the world. Only 200 bottles of the 55-year-old whisky were produced, and one is at Morimoto Asia. Starting at 7:30 p.m., guests will enjoy a multi-course dining experience, with a menu fully customized and prepared by Chef Morimoto. Each dish will be designed to pair with aged Yamazaki whiskey — 12, 18, and 25 years. The culinary journey will come to a close with guests becoming among the few in the world to taste the smoothy and woody notes of Yamazaki 55. Each attendee will take home a custom-engraved Yamazaki 55 glass as a keepsake for the evening. This experience, which takes place at the sushi bar, is extremely limited, with only 14 seats available. Tickets are $5,055 (price includes tax and gratuity) and can be purchased online.

On Sunday, Dec. 5, the spirit of the holidays will return to Morimoto Asia with the annual 12 Beers of Christmas event, featuring holiday-themed beers and gourmet bites. Two different seating options will be available: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2-4 p.m. Each seating will feature 12 holiday-themed brews from Central Florida breweries and 12 samplings of pan-Asian cuisine, including traditional okonomiyaki, takoyaki, sushi & raw bar and Peking duck. Tickets are $95 plus tax and gratuity and can be purchased online, with upgrades to private booths and private dining rooms available. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend.
