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 ?
Fried fruit tomato with basil.
I heard it is so big, but it wasn’t so big as I expected. I expected too much. But it had lots of juice !!! Really good 🙂
Boiled conger eel.
Chicken’s liver putty. Big and thick putty ! I wanted to take it home ! And I wanted to put it on my favorite baguette. That baguette was not good. Just pity…
Fried pork fillet with black vinegar. I don’t like it, so I didn’t eat it at all.
Grilled salted special mackerel.
Whitebait kakiage. So crisp.
Pickled beef tongue with soy sauce. It tasted like liver. I liked it, though I felt strange at first.
Stewed wagyu beef with red wine. The stewed meat was so soft, and I could cut by my chopsticks easily.
Cutlet sandwich. I want to go on a picnic with this sandwich.
I don’t think they are western-style foods restaurant. Everything except sweet and sour pork was tasty. But I think they are izakaya. Absolutely :p
