Ukai Tei Omotesando

Let me start with this:

A cart of desserts for your picking.

This is after they serve your main dessert.

image

I asked for the classic starwberry shortcake. They served it like this.

L had the pistachio éclair with ice cream

But first, the entrance photo taken by Little A.

Our reflection on the lower left area.

We were seated in the salon and served hot tea while waiting for our private room. Normally, counter seats are offered so you can see the chefs working on the teppanyaki. But, they dont allow kids under a certain age to sit there so we were given a private room instead.

Once we were shown inside, we only had to wait a couple of minutes before the gastronomy magic happened.

Marinated small prawn with asparagus baba (what Little A call bubbles). It was so flavorful too!

image

This was supposedly a cold onion soup but we wanted hot soup so they swapped it wih clam cream soup.

image

Sauted Bream. It sounds so simple, right? But it was so good.

The chef is shaving mushrooms on top of the grilled fish.

Fresh ingredients and high skilled chef make my tummy really happy.

Next up. Ukai tei’s top quality beef. We didn’t upgrade the beef to *best* quality because L and I agreed that best quality might be too calorie-fic for us! Also, we just ate steak the other day…so…

image

Look! small but omg, so rich!  Do you see the garlic chips? How amazing are those? The onion strips were sweet!

Little A was meh on the fish. Ate only a little. But, this dish? I was too slow in preparing her fork, she just used her hands to feed herself!

image

Afterwards came the meal which consists of fried rice, pickled veggies and miso soup. To make sure you are full, teehee!

Then, we were whisked off to the dessert parlour where we had the most amazing dessert spread. We shared a platefull of petit fours and drank coffee (in my case, milk with coffee) while Little A roamed around the room and squealed in delight (cakkkeeeees!)

Strawberry pudding that is also part of the trolley desserts.

Ukai tei is one of the best lunches I have had recently.
