Haisai Kitchen is located a 3-minute walk from the Daikanyama Station, in one of the most pleasant residential neighborhoods of Shibuya, Tokyo. The restaurant has terrace seats and is also dog-friendly!
Fusion Okinawan Food!
Haisan Kitchen has a kind of laid back bistro-resto vibe. The two co-owners and chefs are very friendly and will recommend some of their favorites on the menu if asked. There are table and counter seats. The dishes aren't exactly typical Okinawan to be exact. They incorporate elements of French and Italian cuisine that comes from the chefs' past experiences.
Lunch is about ¥1,000. You can have this dish of "Okinawa Soba" noodles that is topped with lots of healthy seaweed. The broth has a deep savory taste that you can drink to the last drop because it's not too salty or oily.
For about the same price you can order this really nicely presented dish of pork and veggies. Pork is commonly eaten in Okinawa but you can see and taste the European cuisine influences here with the dijon mustard and the balsamic vinegar sauce.
TABLE FOR TWO Program Participant
Haisan Kitchen is part of the TABLE FOR TWO program that started in Japan in which a small portion of the revenues from each meal goes towards providing a meal to a child in need in a developing country. Another good reason to eat at this restaurant!
