I would never have found out about Torishige if not for CB and Mutsumi who I met during dinner at Den. See post here.
When they mentioned this place was a favorite of Chef Yoshi Takazawa (yes, of THE Takazawa where I had one of my most memorable meals in Tokyo, read about it here), I knew I had to cancel my reservations and come here instead for my very last dinner in the city.
Although its address says Shibuya, Torishige is actually nearer to Shinjuku Station
I specifically requested to be seated at the bar where I could see all the grilling action.
My hotel concierge did an outstanding job. There were people waiting to be seated, but they
kept the best seat in the house for me!
More seating upstairs, although it's not as fun
Here at Torishige, you use sticks instead of chopsticks
Grilling action. I wish I could insert the intoxicating aroma here.
The menu is all japanese
But Sakamaki-san, the owner-chef, made my life super easy. Everything he fed me
was the best, I couldn't decide which my favorite was.
Pork Tsukene or Meatball
The softest pig organ, the piece that connects the tongue to the throat.
And what insanity is this? Japanese beef topped with uni topped with caviar!!!
It was no ordinary japanese beef, either. Here's a virtual tissue while you drool on my dinner.
(YES, I EAT EVERYTHING!)
Don't forget to get their business card
You won't miss it, it's conveniently located inside the toilet! Lol!
