Botan, Shibaura 牡丹芝浦

My Japanese teacher had been begging me to visit Botan in Shibaura for about two years before we finally came up with the idea of going together. Great move - we had a lovely course lunch in a private room in the multi-storey house of traditional-style Japanese entertainment that is Botan. Well worth a visit if you want to go somewhere that screams "Japan!" (if a somewhat retro version) - especially if you're planning to dine with a larger group.

Nameko with grated radish and chrysthanthemum/ jellied conger eel


Scallop with wakame (seaweed) and tofu sauce


Stewed Ayu. The so-called 'sweetfish' really is sweet!

You eat it all!

Eggplant with miso and salted mackerel

Beautiful chawan

If grapes are your thing, this is the dessert for you!
