Lost and Found in Tokyo
Staying at the Lost in Translation Park Hyatt Tokyo, a beautifully sleek and elegant hotel. Last night I had dinner at restaurant Kozue in the hotel.
The tasting menu had 28 "things" to taste that covered raw, grilled and simmered.
The beef was amazingly delicate and melt-in-the-mouth tender.
The soups had clear broths.
Salt pickled vegetables were simple and clean tasting.
Soba with duck broth and leeks, delicious.
The trip is crazy-short. Only one day in Tokyo, then a bullet train trip to Kyoto. Two days there, then back to Tokyo to return to LA.
Nutty and such great fun.
Here are some photographs from last night's dinner.
More to come.
