*** JULY 2018 UPDATE: XEX CLOSED for BUILDING RECONSTRUCTION ***
It`s a rarity in Tokyo to dine and be served with different cuisines from two excellent restaurants. XEX Daikanyama does just that. Located on the rooftop of the popular baby and kids` product mall, La Fuente, XEX Daikanyama (ゼックス 代官山) offers a unique international dining experience. Enjoy Italian dining at Salvatore Cuomo Bros, fresh sushi at Aburiyaki & Sushi An, and cocktails at their New York style bar and terrace.
I was craving Japanese food and stopped in Aburiyaki & Sushi An for a bite. Their bilingual host gave me the option to dine in their intimate Kyoto-style restaurant or at The XEX Bar with a beautiful view of their water terrace. I opted for the latter. I was seated next to a table with two patrons, one dining on Italian from Salvatore Cuomo Bros and the other with Sushi from Aburiyaki Sushi An. A great idea for those who want to dine together, but with different meals.
Aburiyaki & Sushi An serves healthy lunch sets; fresh Market fish, assorted Sashimi, Meat or Japanese Hamburg, Minced Tuna Rice Bowl and Soba. Most sets come with a small appetiser, Japanese pickles, Miso soup, rice, a mini dessert and drink bar (1000 yen – 1320 yen), and is served with Kimono-wearing waitresses.
The interior of Sushi An takes the patrons back to Kyoto with dim
lighting, minimal furnishings, and service from Kimono wearing servers. A beautiful spot for an intimate date night. Lunch is baby and kid-friendly with table or tatami room seating.
Stop into one of the five additional XEX locations in Tokyo for a unique dining experience.
