Toufuya Ukai ♥ ♥


IMG 7409



Just beside the Tokyo Tower is a beautiful restaurant specializing in tofu.

The tofu at Toufuya Ukai is made with premium soybeans handpicked from Japan's finest crops and is made using the purest water of Hachioki, Japan's Evian.

It is the Rolls Royce of bean curd and should NEVER be compared to my favorite stinky tofu. LOL! :P

We had the Matsu Lunch Course and this pretty Japanese lady
came in to explain each dish to us in perfect Nihongo. I thought
it was beautiful although I couldn't understand a thing. :P

I wasn't as blown away with the food as I was with the setting. But to enjoy a serene meal in an
oasis within one of the busiest cities in the world, made this experience very special for me
