Today’s post is from my special guest in Tokyo: Valérie Steinlauf. Valérie is a food lover and a restaurant’s connoisseur. I trust 100% her judgment and I’m very happy she’s sharing with us her amazing experience at Craftale.
Mifune is an izakaya-style Japanese restaurant in Roppongi, but it is also the name of the very famous actor Mifune Toshiro. He is most remembered for his lead roles in legendary director Kurosawa Akira’s movies, such as Seven Samurai (1954) and Rashomon (1950): both black and white classics. I saw the latter and found it very interesting and quite special.
Love love love this restaurant! Kaikaya by the sea is a busy, fun, loud, crazy restaurant in Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward with absolutely delicious food!
Nobu Tokyo is part of the Nobu group owned by chef Nobu Matsuhisa. The Nobu group has 32 restaurants in 28 different cities around the world, across five continents.
What a fabulous culinary journey I had with Chef Daisuke Kaneko at L’AS!
Chef Daisuke Kaneko, a young chef full of talent and ambition, opened this restaurant in 2012. He uses Japanese ingredients to explore French cuisine.
Wow, this place is just WOW! You’ve probably heard many people saying “This is the best sushi restaurant in Tokyo” and they are right. There are many “best” sushi places in Tokyo and Matsukan is for sure one of them.
I landed at Haneda airport on April 1st at 6:20pm and I was at Nanbantei at 8:30pm to have my first dinner in Tokyo! My first for this trip of course!
Nanbantei is my favorite place for yakitori. It used to be our family restaurant when living in Tokyo from 2009 to 2012.
A perfect place for Shabu-shabu and sushi! You can choose an all-you-can-eat for ¥ 8000 ($65 or 60€) or an a-la-carte menu. Hassan is a 2-min walk from Roppongi station (Exit 1a or 3) and is located beneath a bookstore. My friend Kana found this restaurant and took me during my last trip to Japan.
Hi, I’m Dina , and I’m addicted to Tokyo, Japan!!
People who know me know I’m a big fan of Japan. I love their culture, their cities, their shrines, their temples, their art, their subways, their Shinkansen (high-speed trains), and especially, their cuisine. I lived in Tokyo for three years and I could never get enough!
