[Tokyo] Wakuitei (わくい亭) in Honjo-Azumabashi


I had dinner at Wakuitei (わくい亭) not so far from Tokyo Skytree. They are so popular as big minced cutlet. I heard that they’re western-style restaurant. No matter how I look at it, it never seems western-style !

But they have cozy atmosphere and was good. At first, appetizer (otoshi) was served. Otoshi is served automatically. It’s included in table charge. Boiled burdock and beefmeats. It was tasty, but it was never western foods :p

That day’s menu. Left is Japanese foods, and right is western foods. Probably…

Sashimi. Lean meat of tuna, sea urchin, and abalone. I didn’t have any good expectations as seafoods, but so fresh and good.

Especially, this abalone … !

Clam steamed in Japanese sake. I liked it best in all dishes that I had at the restaurant that day. The ingredients is clams, water and salt. That’s all. Still, why does it so delicious ?
