One of the best things about our trips to Japan is the cuisine but we rarely eat non-Japanese food here. After all, when in Nagasaki........... On our way to Dejima, we spotted Garcon Ken between the tram lines and the restored town area and it begged a pause to look. Ken emerged and advised the menu for the day. He had us at the first items. Well, it was the old European quarter, after all. I ordered a ragoutte and my wife sauteyed chicken. Lovely salad and champignon soup arrived unexpectedly before the main course. It was a lovely day with the windows wide open, rows of blooming tulips along the adjacent old Dutch town. Very pleasant. The food was even better. Ken chatted with us and poured complimentary drinks. Another surprise, a refreshing strawberry desert arrived. The biggest surprise was the bill, probably half what I was expecting. Garcon Ken (surname Watanabe, like the actor) is a skilled chef and clearly has a passion for excellent food and service in a relaxed style. I am not often moved to pen such reviews but the experience at Garcon Ken has left us with a wonderful memory of our visit to Nagasaki, a stand out over the other enjiyable experiences here. If you are in this town, don't miss Garcon Ken.
