Kaoru, Nishi Azabu 馨西麻布

Teppanyaki is a cuisine that, although I always enjoy it, seems just all a bit too easy when looking for somewhere to take my foreign visitors. However, it's a reliable crowd-pleaser and recently I gave Kaoru in Nishi Azabu a try with one such foreign guest.

It's just up the hill from the main restaurant drag parallel to Gaien Nishi Dori, in the open basement of a modern building. It's a small restaurant and on the evening we visited there was just one other couple. Everything else that is served when doing Teppanykai seems secondary to the divine, juicy, fat explosion aka wagyu, but the "befores" and "afters" at Kaoru were very nice.

A modern Japanese feeling in the basement.

Tomato jelly and mozzarella on a stick with basil

Assorted appetisers.

Sea bream with cream sauce.

That's some garlic they got happening there...

Corn salad

Pink wagyu

The condiments included matcha (green tea powder). This is the first time I've tried this and it was delicious.
