Hi Saito san and everyone,
Has you been to Hatsunezushi recently? I plan to book it but from my research so far it’s a pretty polarizing place. It’s the first time I’ve heard quite a few negative feedback on a place of this high caliber and reputation? What’s your view on it if you have visited it? I’m tempted to book it but looks like it’s risky cos the price is so high. Thanks a lot and I’d really appreciate your comments.
Kitajimatei "lamb grilled encased in a rock salt crust"
At restaurants like Quintessence and NARISAWA, French cuisine that is constantly striving to highlight the subtlety of the ingredients has become the norm, but Kitajimatei stands apart with its characteristically strong seasonings that bring it passionate support from meat lovers.
This is one of their specialties: lamb grilled encased in a rock salt crust.
It is grilled to juicy perfection, every bite releasing the lamb's flavour and meat juices.
This restaurant even has a regular customer who comes over from Taiwan to eat here 50 times a year!
And it's no wonder; last night's dinner course was simply superb as alway
This may not be exactly counter manners but “no-show” is becoming a huge problem as well. Sushi Arai, introduced in this guide, said that because of increased number of no-shows, they have no choice but to limit the number of reservations they take from tourists. It is such an unfortunate situation that some tourists’ bad manners are reflected upon all the other guests losing a chance to visit the restaurant.
