Christmas dinner at a low-profile restaurant with 2 friends. Reservation is via email only. My friend, who had been there before, told me that the chef might not exactly be that easy-going, so I asked the only waiter there whether I could take pictures of the food or not, and he was very friendly and told me to go ahead. I was still unsure about using flashlights even though it was pitch dark inside, hence the dark pictures. The chef came out of the kitchen when we were leaving and he seemed friendly though. The Christmas dinner course with all-you-can-drink champagne and wine, was 10,000yen per person. A very small place and only 3 groups of customers that night.
Iberico ham and chorizo. The bread is imported from France, says the waiter.
Kuruma Prawn with radish in cream sauce.
Guinea fowl and foie gras in mushroom and truffle sauce.
Roasted duck breast with apple, in butter and honey.
The chocolate cake, not baked by the chef, is the birthday cake for other customer, who generously shared it with all of us. The chef made us sing birthday song for him. ^^;;
The food is very good. A lot of meat. I like the roasted duck the most even though it is a bit sweet. The prawn dish reminds me of fried prawns with mayonnaise from those Hong Kong style cafe. The guinea fowl one tastes very chinese, despite the French-ish ingredients. This place is not exactly a French restaurant, the chef cooks all kinds of food and you can make your request.
