Japanese food culture, Food event in Tokyo, Japanese unique ingredients and classes
The café is located right next to Tsukiji Honganji Temple, good place for escaping from busy fish market.
Whole glass window gets you full view of spacious garden to the beautiful Buddhist architecture.
Typically, the space is filled with moms who just sent their children to school and have spare time for once for a while breakfast with chatting, like I did.
The most fascinating menu is the morning plate. There are 18 kinds of tiny dishes come with warm congee and miso soup in a tray. The breakfast style is similar to the meal which is served in ryokan accommodation, serving many kinds of little food plates.
Since we prepare breakfast and lunch box, we call bento box, in the morning, we spend super busy time until family leave home. So we need something treat for every day's work, of cause with good and healthy food.
I believe the place is also desirable for tourists, because you can try many different Japanese healthy homey taste with nice and calm atmosphere.
The menu is not only for the breakfast. See the sweets varieties! The café opens from 8 am to 9 pm. There are lunch menus and other meal options as well.
Have you heard Yakiniku, which is indoor BBQ often grill small bite size Beef, but also there are Pork and chicken on the restaurants' menus.
Grilled on charcoal heat then dip several sauces. The meat goes well with beer. Grilled meat is super treat food for everyone.
I just heard from Israeli, Yakiniku BBQ is now popular among the people who visit Japan.
The beer glass is served frozen! I can't get enough of it.
This thin sliced one is beef tongues.
We eat it with specific soy sauce based yakiniku sauce or salt added fresh lemon juice.
Yakiniku is one of the food I'd like you try while you are in Tokyo.
There are many Yakiniku restaurants in Tokyo.
Ventilation system in each restaurants are great, so you will not get the smell from the grill.
I recommend you try Yakiniku while you are in Tokyo.
Since I used to work as a flight attendant, I had visited many cities in the world. I often go for dinner with crew and enjoyed local foods in restaurant in the world.
We sometimes visited Chinese restaurant because we could find easily and sometimes miss Asian food during our stay.
There are some kinds of Chinese food in the world. We enjoyed Dim-sum in London and New York City, local seasonal food such as Shang-hai crab in Hong Kong and fine Chinese dining in Singapore.
I highly recommend High quality Chinese restaurants in Japan. The ingredients are seasonally fresh and amazing cooking technique result in sophisticated Chinese dishes. Also the hospitality service make you impressive experience.
Recently I went to a Chinese restaurant " Ginza Aster". There are some branches in Tokyo and it has been popular years and my father's favorite restaurant. The restaurant is very busy during lunch and dinner.
Peking duck wrapped with thin flour crepe. The duck is traditional way, served only crispy duck skin.
This is an impressive dish for summer specialty. Shrimps and sun dried tomato cooked in chile sauce served with crispy fried rice.
Cold green noodle served like cold ramen noodle.
Cold tapioca and fresh fruits in coconut milk.
Every dishes are served perfectly!
If you are looking for something not Japanese food restaurant, the place is worth to visit your new dining experience.
I'd love to share Japanese Shojin ( vegetarian) restaurant in Roppoingi.
Restaurant shojin offers the menu of Shojin cuisine. Shojin means food that Buddhist priests cook for dairy meals. The cooking doesn't require any animal proteins.
However, the regular meal is used traditional dashi stock, which contains bonito flakes infused soup. If you make a reservation in advance for vegan menus, the chef will make dashi with vegetable stock.
This place I'm sure the vegetarians and vegans enjoy authentic Japanese food.
