7 chome Kyoboshi
Nanachoume Kyoboshi is a three-star Michelin restaurant. However, to Chef Sakakibara's request, he was taken off the Michelin Restaurant listing!
Why? It is a mystery!
Why? It is a mystery!
Chef Sakakibara runs his small tempura shop with his wife and daughter and is a third generation tempura expert. What makes his restaurant worthy of three Michelin stars? Well, it's the years of craftsmanship which allowed him to perfect the batter, as well as the secret recipe for his frying oil.
One of the great pleasures of eating at this restaurant is being able to enjoy seeing the Chef make the tempura right before your eyes. From the batter to the frying of the ingredients, you can see everything from your seat.
Nanachoume Kyoboshi serves the tempura dishes one by one so you can enjoy them slowly served only with lemon juice and finely grated salt.
What distinguishes this restaurant from many other tempura restaurants is the Chef's concern for fresh and in-season ingredients. Since his batter is so perfectly light and crispy, it could hardly cover the taste of unfresh ingredients. The combination of incredibly fresh ingredients combined with a flawlessly crispy batter is what sets this restaurant apart from any other restaurant.
Are you willing to splurge and spend ¥30,000 to ¥40,000 for the best tempura of your life? That's entirely up to you!
You can see how incredibly light the batter is from the pictures above.
For dessert, the Chef also uses fresh ingredients, such as these chestnuts, which are the perfect way to end a meal.
Chef Sakakibara will welcome you with a warm smile and some useful English phrases. You are bound to have an unforgettable culinary experience!
