I created this blog as my personal Tokyo restaurant guide, but I hope you will also enjoy reading it.

My Humble House, Ginza マイハンブルハウス東京 銀座

When my friend suggested going to "My Humble House" I thought we'd be in for pizza on the floor at her place. How wrong I was! My Humble House is in fact a large, designer's style restaurant in the middle of Ginza, near the Printemps department store. It's the child of a famous restaurant of the same name in Singapore. The ambience is dark and luxurious with plenty of plush, wrap-around banquettes and amazing wallpaper and ceiling coverings that reminded my very much of something Florence Broadhurst, the celebrated Australian wallpaper designer who died in mysterious circumstances, would have put together. We ordered a fixed menu which consisted of an entree, a fish, a main and a dessert. The entree platter had on it a fried prawn with green mayonnaise, some chinese barbecued pork and a little fresh spring roll with a dab of mango sauce. A white fish served in a bowl with fresh herbs and a little broth followed. Then we were served slow cooked pork in a little soup and a small Chinese bun to soak up the juices. Dessert was a small yogurt served with yuzu jelly. If I put the food against a good Chinese restaurant it may not come off so well in the comparison, however it was a very nice meal and I would recommend it for the stylish ambience as much as anything.
