MY DELICIOUS MEAL AT TAN-ETSU
Today I head off to Mid-town which is an uber hip area in Tokyo with cutting edge boutiques, the stylishly chic, and food galore. There are European style cafes, traditional Edo style Japanese restaurants, a Dean and DeLuca shop, and so much more. Today I go to to one of my favorite spots, Tan-Etsu, which serves traditional style Japanese cuisine. Tan-Etsu has the most amazing two layered bento box that arrives with a ceramic bird on top and an assortment of twenty something different delicacies. The presentation of the meal is so stunning that a part of me didn’t want to ruin the visual aesthetic, but I knew that the best was yet to come. The Japanese take great pride in serving food that is not only stimulating to the taste buds, but to the visual senses as well. From the succulent eggplant, to the savory sweet egg, the fish cakes, and the enchanting kuromame (black bean) for good luck, every delicate bite is a mouth watering experience. Another bonus with Tan-etsu is the option of dining on the terrace which offers stellar views of Tokyo both during the day and at night.
Tan-Etsu is located in Tokyo’s Mid-Town District at the:
Garden Terrace 3rd Floor, Akasaka 9-7-4 Minato-Ku
