The word TIRPSE may sound strange to pronounce, but its name derives from the French word for spirit (esprit), spelled backward. Located on the second floor K11 MUSEA, the restaurant by Mr. Ohashi Naotaka first opened in Tokyo, before expanding into Hong Kong. Here, TIRPSE was rewarded with a Michelin star within a mere two months of opening. Helmed by Chef Shimizu Yuta, the eatery welcomes diners from allover to try one of the two set menus available.
