This authentic and low key Japanese restaurant Kappo Ishito specialized in Kaiseki (traditional pre-fixed haute cuisine). It is tucked away on the 3rd floor of a plaza, overshadowed by the very popular ramen joint (Orocho) next door.
We heard about their limited bento box (only 15 are made everyday) during weekday lunch, but we arrived too late.
The interior is quiet and low key, a huge contrast with the young crowd from next door .
I got the Sashimi Lunch Set ($13). The sashimi were very fresh and good quality. Simple, light and tasty!
Kurobuta (Black Pork) Katsu Set ($18). Both of my friends got this and they said it’s excellent! I tried a piece of the black pork and it was very tender and tasty.
The food is finely made with delicacy. I’m still interested in their bento box and hopefully I could try that sometimes. I wonder how their Kaiseki course dinner ($$$) is like?
