If you watch Travel Channel or Food Network, you hear the words "umami" from critics so many times but you don't know what it is.
I found it here. I wish Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain (I respect them a great deal) were here to agree with me. It's just impossible to explain how much each dish amuses my tongue, as well as my eyes. Also, the smell was so appetizing (cause' I tend to smell foods before I eat). Love Kobe steak here (clever idea on "soy sauce mousse" for the steak). No question, we cannot get real Kobe beef in the US (especially here serves champion Kobe's and I think it's illegal to import any beef to the US now). Oh, and I have to say that I give kudos to whoever chef is in charge of soups here. This is real "umami" in those dashi and impeccable choice of veggies go in there as well.
Love full bodied red vino from Kenzo estate in Napa, which was introduced by GM there (super nice guy!).
Whole experience here was awesome, which is complemented by great service by staff. This starts as we are seeing the signage of the restaurant, and until we step up those stairs to ground level. I wanna go back there again on my next visit to Tokyo.
