Kikkoman Live Kitchen – Japanese Epicurean Dinner Cooking Performance
We absolutely loved the our dinner from the lobster and abalone pot pie to the steak. The course meal is 15,000 yen (not including tax) and a five drink sake and wine pairing (7,000 yen) or three drink wine pairing can be added (5,000 yen). We enjoyed tremendously that before each course was served that the MC and head chef spoke about how the course was made and about special ingredients. The perfeincae was park cooking show and part talk show. The menu does change once a month so review the menu to make sure it is what you and your friends want to each. There is no a la carte. There is presently only one sitting a night (starting at 18:30), so don’t be late.
The Kikkoman Live Kitchen is located in the B1 level of the building 2-3 Yurakucho (it also can be accessed via the Yurakucho station without going outside). When you enter the restaurant there is a cute Kikkoman store where you an buy everyday Kikkoman products but also special items. A beautiful seleciotn of great products for home or gift. The main restaurant hall is very modern and sleek.
A great place to take visitors from out of town or for date night. Note: Children must be above 12-years-old to attend dinner :0(
