Takumi by Daisuke Mori: Where the chef’s fine culinary skills are on extraordinary display
- The teppan-style kitchen does a nine-course tasting menu with seasonal dishes like black abalone with home-made tagliolini and kimo sauce
Tucked away in a quiet residential street, this gem of a restaurant serves innovative French/Japanese cuisine. The teppan-style open kitchen, around which are 12 seats, shows off executive chef Daisuke Mori’s culinary skills.
Mori – of Tokyo’s Mandarin Oriental and Restaurant Joël Robuchon – offers a nine-course tasting menu with seasonal dishes like black abalone with home-made tagliolini and kimo sauce and Hokkaido scallops with chestnut jus poulet.
For dessert, try the tonka-flavoured crème brûlée with home-made ice cream. The sommelier can recommend the perfect wine pairing. A vegetarian/vegan menu is available on request, as is lunchtime dining.
