Dine On Fancy Authentic Japanese Food Casually at SHARI in Ginza

06.October.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

SHARI is a restaurant located on the second floor of Mitsui Garden Hotel Ginza-gochome, a new hotel that opened on September 26 located within walking distance from Ginza Station and Higashi-Ginza Station. This restaurant serves authentic and fancy Japanese-style food as well as luxurious Kobe beef, gozen set meals, and much more.

Ginza is known as the expensive, upmarket part of Tokyo, and when talking about small local restaurants there the pricing threshold tends to be rather high, but at SHARI customers can enjoy proper Japanese cuisine in a more casual manner and at a much more affordable price, with the typical set lunches starting at just ¥1,200.

Sophisticated is the word that springs to mind upon entering this restaurant, as your eyes meet the gorgeous mix of wood on black. As well as table seats, they also have counter seats too, allowing for you to enjoy a little luxury on your own if you so wish.

There is an additional restaurant inside the main restaurant itself that goes by the name Teppanyaki Mitaki, a tiny six-seater restaurant that serves Kobe beef, a type of wagyu beef and one of the top three beefs in Japan.

SHARI Gozen – ¥3,000 (Before Tax)

I ordered the SHARI Gozen which is served during lunchtime. This set comes with six small bowls, each filled with different colourful foods. It’s a cute-looking set♡

There’s lots of meat and fish included in the set. For meat, they have steak made with domestic beef. It’s succulent and drizzled in a rich sauce that fills your mouth deliciously with a single bite. With the sashimi, the restaurant makes sure to serve fish that’s in reason. There were 3 types of fish so it was a very satisfying meal.

The set can also be served with a variety of deep-fried foods, stewed foods, and cold fishes, as well as rice, miso soup, desserts and more. No matter what you order you can rest assured you’ll be full afterwards.

 

SHARI is a chic and stylish restaurant with great food, plus it’s located in Ginza. And you can enjoy all of this at a super low price!

Lady’s Gozen – ¥2,600 (Before Tax)

I have to recommend the Lady’s Gozen if you’re looking to enjoy fish and vegetables. It comes with two varieties of sashimi and one fried fish, all in season, as well as an assortment of fried food, savoury egg custard, and four side dishes.

It also comes with rice and sushi rolls as well as a dessert like the SHARI Gozen.

The whole dinner menu is lined with Japanese food, including sashimi, tempura, fried food and more. There’s also various courses, including the Teppanyaki Mitaki course which is priced from ¥12,000. It comes with Kobe beef of course in addition to various other high quality ingredients.

Shu – ¥1,000 (Before Tax)

I also recommend this Japanese-style cocktail for those thinking of staying late. It’s inspired by the colours used in kabuki theatre―a Bloody Mary combining shichimi, nihonshu, and tomato juice. The rim of the glass is lined with more shichmi for a spicy and refreshing kick when you sip.

Check out the cute glass it comes in too.

 

From affordable lunches to dinner courses made with top quality ingredients, SHARI can be enjoyed throughout the entire day with its diverse menu line-up. Be sure to pay a visit to tuck into authentic Japanese cuisine in the luxury district of Ginza.

  • Sai Sai Jaran Jaran #7: SILENT SIREN’s Yukarun Has Her First Afternoon Tea at Ginza’s ‘THE GRAND LOUNGE’

    13.May.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Sai Sai Jaran Jaran is a featured series here on MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON from the members of the all-female band SILEN SIREN (aka Sai Sai) who visit various hot spots in Japan and experience different things, the Sai Sai way.

     

    Band keyboardist Yukarun has always wanted to try having afternoon tea. To make her dream come true, she took a visit to THE GRAND LOUNGE in Ginza.

    THE GRAND LOUNGE is a multipurpose lounge for adults located on the 13th floor of THE GRAND GINZA in GINZA SIX.

    Normally in restaurants afternoon tea is often reserved just for the afternoon but at THE GRAND LOUNGE you can enjoy it any time.

    *The afternoon tea set shown above is for 2 people.

    The afternoon tea set here costs ¥4,200 (before tax and service charge). It comes with 7 hors d’oeuvres, 7 sweets, strawberry mille-feuille, and a teapot with free black tea refills. Strawberries are the running theme until June, so the desserts and hors d’oeuvres are made using plenty of Japanese “tochiotome” strawberries. It’s a big tea set so can be enjoyed by couples or big eaters.

    Yukarun is very pleased with the afternoon tea set so much so that she must take a photo beforehand! There are so many strawberries sweets. “I feel happy just looking at this assortment♡” she says.

    The drinks in the set are made by San Francisco-based high tea brand Mighty Leaf. There are 11 types to choose from―9 hot and 2 iced―all of which Mighty Leaf have ensured are organic with only the best herbs chosen.

    You choose your favourite by smelling the fragrant aromas of each bottle. The one most popular with Yukarun was the “White Orchard.” White tea and green tea are used as the base in this drink which are blended with melon and peach fragrance. The fact you get free refills makes it a favourable service.

    Time to tuck in!

    The tasty line-up will have you wondering where to even begin eating from.

    It’s not just the sweets that are piled with strawberries but the light appetisers too. These appetisers include foie gras, salmon and more―all extravagant delectables.

    “Delicious!” says a satisfied Yukarun as she takes her first bite from the bottom row appetisers.

    The variety of sweets is diverse, from jelly to tarts, mousse and beyond. “The sweets come in cute mini sizes! And they’re all super delicious!” comments Yukarun.

    “The tea I chose is really tasty too! I don’t think I’ve ever had tea this good before!”

    Then it was time for the crowning jewel of the afternoon tea set: the strawberry mille-feuille. It is a recreation of the legendary mille-feuille sold at Maxim’s de Paris, a much-loved French restaurant in Ginza that closed in 2015. This sandwich-like dessert takes crunchy pie and stuffs fat strawberries and custard cream between them. It’s a popular dessert ordered by itself too. The version of it that comes with the afternoon tea is half-sized.

    “So good! This is true happiness♡” says Yukarun who is clearly enjoying herself. The mille-feuille can also be ordered for takeout.

    How was your first ever afternoon tea experience, Yukarun?

     

    “It felt elegant and sophisticated being in a place like this. There are lots of bite-sized appetisers and sweets so it’s fun to try them one by one. It’s fun thinking about where to eat from too, and I was really glad you get to choose your own tea. I definitely want to come here again in my own time! I want to dress up and come with my girlfriends.”

    The items that come with the afternoon teas at THE GRAND LOUNGE change with each season, and right now it’s all about strawberries. Head to THE GRAND LOUNGE yourself and treat yourself and others to a luxurious afternoon tea―at any time of the day.

  • The Premium Bread of Ginza Nishikawa Arrives in Japan’s Tohoku Region

    11.June.2019 | FOOD

    Ginza Nishikawa is a popular bread shop that opened its doors in Ginza last autumn. The store has announced that on June 27, it will open its 10th branch in Hirosaki, Aomori―the first to open in the Tohoku region.

    The shop sells one product: a high-quality premium loaf whose water content Ginza Nishikawa are very particular about. The bread’s chewy and slightly sweet taste is best enjoyed as it is―and on the first day. If left after the first day, you can enjoy a completely different tasting experience. This is because the water content decreases after day one. If toasted from the second day onward, the bread has a deliciously particular aroma which you don’t get when the bread is soft.

     

    This bread goes extremely well with Japanese ingredients and condiments, such as kinpira gobo (braised burdock root), nasu miso, narazuke pickles, pollock roe, shuto (pickled bonito entrails mixed with honey, mirin and sake), and so on.

     

    Ginza Nishikawa also recommends eating the bread with alcohol, such as a light and slightly sour red or rosé, or a strong white. It also goes well with sparkling wine, especially brands from Japan. With cocktails, they recommend drinking fruity ones like peach, loquat, or yuzu. Bread is normally seen as a breakfast food, but this bread is also one to be enjoyed in the evening too.

    Ginza Nishikawa’s bread is handcrafted into delicious loafs that anyone can enjoy at anytime by their skilled bakers. The staff check the temperature of the weather and level of humidity to carefully calculate the rate of water absorption and fermentation time to ensure high quality results every time. And to make sure that the flavour and texture of the bread is exactly the same at every branch, the company created their own evaluation system.

    The water in the bread is made with an alkaline ionizer which is what makes it so unique, giving it a smooth texture like silk.

    The stores also sell four different cloths that wrap around a single loaf (¥1,296 tax included).

     

    Be sure to stop by Ginza Nishikawa if you’re passing through Aomori Prefecture.

    Get ready to dine on desserts in style as Shiseido Parlour announces its second-ever Midsummer Parfait Fair at its Salon de Cafe in Ginza which will be held from August 1 to 25.

     

    Four incredible summery parfaits make the fair’s lineup, each centred around local and seasonal fruits. This year sees the return of the popular mango, fig and strawberry flavours, and for the first time ever, a melon flavour made with melons from the city of Furano in Hokkaido.

    Hokkaido Prefecture Furano Melon Parfait – ¥1,980 (Tax Included)

    Made with sweet and fragrant Furano melons grown in Hokkaido’s city of Furano, this angelic delight of a parfait is made with classic silky vanilla ice cream, refreshing hibiscus jelly, and for added accent, a squeeze of cranberry sauce. The fresh melon piece toppings are packed full of mouth-watering melon juice. The melon is served in several different ways for textural enjoyment including skinless slices, a slice with the skin on, and melon balls.

    Wakayama Prefecture Kinokawa Fig Parfait – ¥2,160 (Tax Included)

    The seasonal figs in this parfait have been grown and nurtured laboriously. The figs are plucked in Wakayama prefecture and are served fresh on your dessert. Tucked under the hearty serving of figs is a red wine-laced compote, sauce and sherbet while placed gracefully on top is a baked tuile. There is also a fig and apple jelly for that cheek-sucking sweet kick.

    Okinawa Prefecture Apple Mango Parfait – ¥2,580 (Tax Included)

    If you love mangoes, then you’re in for a treat with this parfait which is prepared with mangoes from Okinawa which have been cut up into different shapes and sizes. The dessert contains a midsummer medley of ingredients including a tropical homemade mango sherbet, an exotic sauce, milk flavoured ice cream, and cranberry sauce. Savour the succulent taste, smooth texture and sweet aroma of the elusive Keats mango, the richest and most delicious of all mangoes, and one which has only a limited production in Okinawa from mid-August onward.

    Nagano Prefecture Hatake Kobo Koihime Strawberry Parfait – ¥1,890 (Tax Included)

    Finally, this tempting parfait is made with strawberries from Hatake Kobo in Nagano. Because of the regional climate of Nagano, these gorgeous strawberries are delicious from summer through fall. They are served with classic vanilla ice cream for the absolute perfect pairing.

     

    Which of these do you want to try the most?♡

    The result is a rich potage with a distinct moist texture and melon-like flavour. The squash is as velvety as butter and combines deliciously with the nut assortment.

     

    “Toriko” Beetroot & Red Onion Sour Potage

    “Toriko” is a sour potage that mixes together beets, mini tomatoes, red onions, and apple cider vinegar for a refreshing, tangy kick. The combination of ingredients also makes for a colourful presentation and healthy pack of nutrients.
