  • Hand drip tea speciality shop Tokyo Saryo reopens Ochazuke stand for limited time only!

    26.April.2019 | FOOD

    Tokyo Saryo was the world’s first ever hand drip tea specialist shop. This year, they’re celebrating the first tea of the season with the reopening of Ochazuke stand Tokyo Saryo. The Ochazuke stand was a big hit last year, and this year it will be open for a three month period from Wednesday 24th April to Wednesday 31st July.

     

    Ochazuke is a Japanese dish that every Japanese person must have had at least once in their life. For many, it is a normal option for a light breakfast that you can make at home. It’s just green tea poured over cooked rice. Simple! However, in recent years, replacing the green tea with dashi stock has become the most popular form of this breakfast. The Ochazuke stand hopes to encourage people to use green tea for their ochazuke in their daily lives more often by creating an original ochazuke dish which really carries the flavour of green tea. The recipe has been specially made to fit in with modern daily lifestyle.

    This ochazuke is sprinkled with lots of green tea so you can really enjoy “eating” tea! Soft sprouting tea leaves that resemble the appearance of nori seaweed are collected and ground into a powder called tencha. This tea remains in its unground form of matcha. Pour water over the original green tea powder and the fragrance of the tea will be released!

    Teahouse original ochazuke: Eel ¥500 Teahouse original ochazuke: Salmon ¥500
    Teahouse original ochazuke: Scallop ¥500  Teahouse original ochazuke: Plum ¥500 (*tax included in prices stated)

     You can also add olive oil to your dish afterwards for just ¥50.

     

    Order Tokyo Saryo’s hand drip tea on top of your order (+¥150) and you will be presented with the first tea of the season that uses tea leaves freshly collected from Kagoshima. The leaves were collected on 7th April 2019 and a special recipe is used to make this tea.

    It’s not just tea they serve here! As an important base flavour, the stand also serves up dashi. This is made by combining bonito fish flakes and kombu kelp sourced from Makurazaki to produce a high quality and delicious flavour.

    You can also choose to add a topping of Nicomaru Genmai which is made from brown rice. This is very popular among adults as it adds a luxurious fragrance to your meal.

    You can eat in or take out for the same price. Every day, sales will end when they run out of rice, so get there as fast as you can!

  • Enjoy Deliciously Rich Aged Sushi at the Newly-Opened Wadanoya in Ebisu

    29.September.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Have you ever heard of jukusei sushi?

     

    Jukusei sushi is aged or matured sushi. It overturns the idea of fresh fish and instead tries to bring out the maximum possible flavour out of the fish through ageing. Just how does the flavour of aged sushi change from the other sushi I’ve eaten?

     

    Today I visited Wadanoya, an aged sushi shop in Ebisu, Tokyo that receives direct deliveries from Kyushu.

    The restaurant is located between Daikanyama Station and Ebisu Station, just a 5-minute walk from either. It’s located on the lower first floor of a building.

     

    They offer both relaxing counter seats and horigotatsu, or sunken kotatsu seats. When there aren’t a lot of customers in I recommend eating at the counter where you can chat with the owner.

    The meal I ate was a set course. The starter was sashimi which I had with white wine. This fish was caught in the Goto Islands.

    Next up was tempura – Satsuma chicken and seasonal vegetables. The chicken was juicy with a light dressing. It’s eaten with salt and ponzu. The summer vegetables were okura and eggplant. These were also grown in Kyushu.

    This was followed by horse-meat sashimi from Kumamoto served with hot Kabosu Kosho. Adding even just a little to the meat allows for enjoyment of a completely different flavour. The meat is soft, melts in your mouth and doesn’t smell.

    Next was sea urchin from Nagasaki Prefecture topped with butter shoyu and fish offcuts. The butter shoyu gives the sea urchin and offcuts an extremely rich flavour. It was a luxurious dish with a hearty serving of fresh sea urchin.

    And then the star of the show which I couldn’t wait for – aged sushi!

     

    This fish is meichidai, or grey large-eye bream, which had been aged for one week. My first impression was “How rich!” It’s a little thick and has a deep flavour. Its good, rich taste fills your entire mouth.

    I also ate other aged sushi too including mackerel and tuna. The mackerel I had was aged in the refrigerator for 3 days and the tuna one week. It might have been the first time I had ever eaten such thick, smooth tuna.

     

    The owner said that each respective fish is aged for the right period under the right temperature conditions. They go to such lengths to create these rich flavours!

    Having enjoyed my fill with a full belly the last item on the course was a large serving of dagoshiru soup. It contains lots of ingredients like chewy dango, carrots and greater burdock. It had a subtle and mild taste.

     

    Wadanoya is a popular restaurant that originates from Osaka. It’s sure to end up popular in no time in Ebisu too. The restaurant is celebrating its opening until the end of October 2018 by serving their 28-item sushi course for ¥10,000 down from the regular price of ¥12,000.

     

    Take advantage of this special price and try aged sushi for yourself.

What’s even better is that the store’s brown sugar tapioca lattes are served with twice the amount of tapioca to the normal tapioca teas they sell.

    THE ALLEY 黒糖タピオカ

     

    The Brown Sugar Matcha Latte is a combination of bright springtime matcha and milk giving it a two-tone colour. The bitter flavour of the matcha draws out the sweetness of the brown sugar tapioca. Both the drinks’ appearance and taste are immensely satisfying!

  • Chef Jun Kurogi to release Japanese caviar brand “CAVIAR PURE”

    09.December.2017 | FOOD

    Kurogi is a Japanese restaurant that is said to be the most difficult in Tokyo to get a reservation. The owner, Jun Kurogi, has a group company called A KUROGI HALAL FOODS, who is releasing a new brand of caviar called CAVIAR PURE together with JAPAN CAVIAR, Inc – the biggest producer of caviar in Miyazaki Prefecture – with the hope of global expansion. CAVIAR PURE will go on sale starting December 13th.

     czMjYXJ0aWNsZSM1NDkzNiMxOTM5MDAjNTQ5MzZfZlpiZ2VRcGdjYS5qcGc

    JAPAN CAVIAR’s caviar brand “CAVIAR PURE” uses leading edge techniques and delicate skill that has been handed down through the years to produce a great flavour unique to Japan that was born from the Japanese mindset to deliver only the best of the best.

    czMjYXJ0aWNsZSM1NDkzNiMxOTM5MDAjNTQ5MzZfTnFaSWFsYVZVSy5qcGc

    A lot of high grade imported caviar uses preservatives, pasteurization and high salinity (5-7%) to prioritize the prolongation of food storage. However, using this process reduces the flavour and freshness of the caviar. That’s where “CAVIAR PURE” comes in. Only sturgeons that are raised healthily are harvested for their fresh roe which is processed into caviar. The company is also able to produce a low salt concentration thanks to blending low mineral salt. This is where the real flavour of the caviar comes in: as once it has been cured to bring out the good flavour it is quickly put in cold storage producing fresh caviar for you to enjoy.

     czMjYXJ0aWNsZSM1NDkzNiMxOTM5MDAjNTQ5MzZfUmNFZk9NTW9KYi5qcGc

    Moreover, everything from harvesting to the production of the caviar is consistent in Miyazaki Prefecture. No chemicals are used at any point during the rearing of the sturgeons – they are reared within strict guidelines which are are firmly adhered to so as to not spoil the flavour.

     czMjYXJ0aWNsZSM1NDkzNiMxOTM5MDAjNTQ5MzZfYUVmVk5FeUhrZC5qcGc

    The deciding factor of the caviar’s great taste is the natural flavour of the caviar brought out by blended low mineral salt. The seasoning uses only the best blended salt selected by the caviar masters around the world. Jun Kurogi is one of those masters and demonstrates excellence of his seasoning with the harvested caviar.

     czMjYXJ0aWNsZSM1NDkzNiMxOTM5MDAjNTQ5MzZfWk5UdHNJWmFIYi5qcGc

    If you’re feeling a little bit luxurious then why not try some high quality caviar obtainable only in Japan?

    The interior of “Shinjuku Kakekomi Gyoza” has been designed to look like the Edo Period fire fighter organization, “Hikeshi-tai.” Paper lanterns hang from the ceiling and there are wooden tabs hanging all over the wall. When you enter this store, you will feel as though you have time-slipped into the Edo Period and you can enjoy the atmosphere and the lively feeling.

    “Colorful Rainbow Gyoza” has a skin with a chewy texture and is packed full of meat. The 5 colors of the gyoza are made of the following; squid ink, turmeric, spinach and red peppers. The skin does not absorb water and become soggy so it is good as a take-away item. This gyoza is not only very delicious but is a very photogenic 5-colored gyoza.

    This gyoza uses specially chosen cuts of pork and special attention has been paid to the “umami” flavor of the meat. It is a “shoronpo”-like gyoza with lots of meat juices. The secret of the meat juices is the fact that high-quality scallop muscles and fish soup is used. The flour used to make the skin has a chewy texture and is suited to envelop the meat juices. No garlic or “nira” (leek) is used so it is very popular with women. The more you chew the more the meat juices fill your mouth and it is a truly exquisite gyoza.

     

    2017, November 29 (Wed.) is known as “good meat day” (The reading of the numbers in Japanese – “ii niku” means “good meat.”) On this day a “Ii Niku no hi” campaign will be carried out. The campaign will be carried out from 23:00 ~ 5:00 (90 minute duration) for all customers who have reservations after 23:00. “Colorful Rainbow Gyoza” (500 yen per order) will be offered (the 5 gyoza will be the following gyoza; boiled gyoza, fried gyoza, deep fried gyoza, gyoza cutlet and colorful rainbow gyoza.)

    The 3 major noodle dishes in Japan are ramen, soba-noodles, and udon-noodles. What people like about these noodles is how different they are according to the area. Broadly speaking, people in the East like soba noodles, and people in West like udon-noodles. Therefore, Tokyo is in the soba culture area. If you are looking for a modern type of restaurant, there is the Michelin-starred restaurant called “Tamawarai” in Harajuku.
