The Annual Christmas Gig

25 12 2012

This is a record of our “Christmas dinner” for this year, something a couple of my friends and I keep doing every year at Christmas time.  It’s just another dinner in Tokyo but the tricky thing is to choose a restaurant that is NOT offering the “Christmas menu” as most restaurants do making it the only choice for your dining (dis)pleasure.  This year the Friday before Christmas was the 21st which is the night we picked so that may have helped, making it a bit too early for all restaurants to be featuring the Christmas menu.

This very tucked away restaurant on the edge of Shibuya on a very quiet street kept getting busier and busier as the hours passed.  (They only open at 7 pm which is very late by Japanese standard.)  The food was great.  “The system” of never changing the wine glass (or the cutlery but that you see a lot) is somewhat questionable given what they charge.  I liked it that they use a very proper white cotton napkin.  (Japan is not big on napkins.)
