More Tempura Lunch

14 11 2013

Since our offices moved to the general neighborhood of Shibuya a few years ago, whenever I have the opportunity, mainly with visiting guests from overseas, I try to go to this tempura restaurant for lunch.  It is quite heavenly.  (Doing dinner here would be going well over the budget if you’re not careful. ^^)

There were four of us the other day, so I had asked for a room upstairs instead of the downstairs counter seats.

You know, everything in a Japanese restaurant environment looks so clean and austere, even the sight of tempura makes me feel like I need a makeover. 🙂 Ken

You don’t but your comment makes me realize that there must be something true in “Japanese aesthetics”. A Swedish friend pointed out by looking at a photo I posted on facebook of my passports, one navy blue and the other red (navy good for 5 years, red 10. I went with navy for the last few renewals because I preferred the color but switched to red for practical reasons), but with the same chrysanthemum design and the writing in alphabet and Chinese (i.e. Japanese) characters, about “Japanese aesthetics”. Does that make sense?

Such gorgeous tableware! Especially the red plate is very unusual.

Well spotted! I think the plate is Japanese but could also pass for Scandinavian. We have similar kinds of stoneware dishes.
