Hi Saito-san, can I check whether one can walk-in to ranmaru? Or is reservations required? And any restaurant you would recommend for plenty of Ikura?
They are very popular at the moment so I think it's essential to make a reservation beforehand.As far as ikura goes, it's not in season right now, so I would say that it's practically impossible to find a place where it will taste good.
Hello Saito san, Have you been to Tomidokoro in Shinbashi? Any thoughts?
It’s very delicious. However, it’s already closed its door for all foreign visitors. I’d recommend u ask your Japanese friends to go with u.
Out of the new sushi restaurants that have opened in the past year or so, this one is by far my favorite. Both Shimizu-san of "Shimizu" and Arai-san of "Sushi Arai" rave at the potential of this store. (His sushi features slightly larger shari that is seasoned with red vinegar.)
Saito-san and localtaste, so technically no chance for foreign visitors to visit tomidokoro?
It's worth a try to make a request through a hotel concierge or something similar to that. If that turns out to be difficult then please get back in touch with me here.I also might be able to come along depending on the date.
I was there yesterday, and asked him about foreigners visiting. He said something along the lines of he doesn't really want to take groups of non-japanese speakers as he speaks no English. If accompanied by a Japanese speaker, he said no problem.
Hi I'm going to Tokyo next week for the first time and would love some recommendations on your favourite spots for the following:Omakase sushiyasa la carte sushiyascasual but good quality sushiyas Yakinuku Coffee shopsI've got some recommendations but it looks quite commercial like Jojoen for example? I would love a mix of high end, amazing quality restaurants and also places with excellent quality food for a good price. I'm hoping not everything that's great has to be so expensive! I'm interested in the hidden gems not just the commercially known restaurants. Thank you so much in advance :)
Forgot to sign, my name is kenzie :)
For AMAZING coffee, go to Switch. Although they have a location in Shibuya, I recommend going to their location in Meguro (where they roast the beans). They source excellent beans and do a mean pour-over. https://tabelog.com/en/tokyo/A1316/A131601/13161594/

Hello Saito-san,Do you know if Ningyocho Imahan Honten takes solo reservations? Their Tablecheck page seems to only allow parties of 2+. I was considering lunch if that makes a difference. Is it possible to walk in?If Imahan does not allow for parties of 1, are there any similar Sukiyaki places that have a similar experience? I have not had Sukiyaki before but I am very interested.Thank you!
Hi Saito san,Do you know this restaurant in Nagoya called Nozawa? Have you been there? How hard is it to book it? thanks a lot.Angelina
I visited it once about two years ago.It is a hidden restaurant that only accepts referrals. Its review on Tabelog is incredibly high if you go and have a look now.I personally prefer simple Japanese cuisine, so the creative dishes of Nozawa did not suit me very well.
