In a city known for its plethora of dining choices, one of its more beautiful culinary offerings is certainly a seat at intimate chef’s counter, Tokuyama
. In lovely juxtaposition to the bright lights and bustling city, Tokuyama is minimal, cozy and private in Nishi-Azabu, the bustling bar district. Known for the mystical (and poisonous if not prepared correctly) fugu, or puffer fish, Tokuyama was actually the first establishment to serve it at a counter. Bring a group of four if you dare, inhale the delicious dashi smell and watch a master chef display his craft before you.
