Duck Terrine Campagne style.
Pan-fried Gambas prawn with risotto(+Y300).
From the Y2860 lunch course(+Y300 for the prawn).
I’m quite impressed by this place! Honestly I wasn’t expecting high for this place because it’s located on the top floor of a department store(Daimaru Tokyo) and we could easily get a table for a weekend lunch even though we only booked the night before….but I was surprised by how high the quality of the food was. Appetizer, main, dessert….everything was so well prepared and delicious. Plus we got a table next to the window and had a nice view over the streets. All of that for about Y4000(including a glass of champagne which was reasonably priced). Incredible value!

Super popular Okonomiyaki restaurant from Osaka. We went around 5:30pm on a weekday and luckily there was no queue yet but the seats were already half-filled. After that the queue just kept getting longer and longer. They don’t take reservation so there is no other easy way other than going early on a weekday or be patient and queue. Once you are inside though, the atmosphere is quite relaxed and the waiters won’t try to hurry you or anything. All the food are cooked in the kitchen and delivered to your hotplate table for you to sprinkle seaweed or katsuobushi on top. The food are very nice in general, despite they are slightly on the salty side. Not the harder, more solid okonomiyaki I am familiar with, but the soft and liquidy kind. Other than the regular “sauce flavour”, which is easy to get tired of cos it is so sweet, you can also choose “Salt” or “Soy sauce” or “Ponzu” for some items. Four of us shared all the food and with 2-3 drinks each, it was about 2500yen per person.
