Pizza Studio Tamaki
If you're travelling through, you probably wouldn't think of having pizza in Japan. You'd rather gorge on traditional Japanese cuisine, and rightfully so, but, you'll most definitely be missing out! You'll be missing out on the best pizza in your life and that's no exaggeration. Tokyo is adapting Italian cuisine to the Japanese palate and making it - dare I say it - better than the Italians.
Being this popular, you probably won't be able to get in without a reservation. With the perfect balance of flavours and the combination of Japanese and Italian ingredients, no wonder this place is so busy.
Pizza Studio Tamaki is a pizza place run by Tsubasa Tamaki who is very meticulous and particular about the ingredients he uses. Each ingredient is carefully selected to ensure the highest quality.
If you really want to know what the fuss is about, you need to try the Margherita. Sometimes the simpler, the better. You really get to enjoy the master's skillfulness with this pizza. Pair it with a nice glass of red wine from the chef's recommended list and you have a piece of paradise.
There are so many delicious variations to try from. Apart from the classic Margherita and Marinara, the homemade sausage is highly recommended and so is the cheese imported directly from Italy. To be honest, there's no going wrong with any pizza here, they're simply amazing.
You can have Okinawa beer, homemade lemonade and or course selected wine. The lemonade is made with lemons from Japanese farms so that is definitely worth the try!
A lot like pizza, the desserts are simple but amazing! The pannacotta is definitely a wonderful way to finish your dinner on a sweet note. There are also seasonal desserts, like the one presented above made with Japanese mangoes.
You won't know what hit you, but one thing is for sure, you'll be back again soon! It's just that amazing.
