#JESSICALOVESTOKYO: JAPANESE DINING IN KEIO PLAZA HOTEL

Keio Plaza Hotel, Shinjuku houses 25 restaurants and bars serving a variety of cuisines. Whether you are craving for Japanese cuisine, Korean cuisine, Chinese cuisine or even Italian/French cuisine, just head to the 2nd floor in Keio Plaza Hotel to satiate your hunger!

By the way, on my second night in Tokyo, I got to experience a truly awesome and authentic Japanese dining experience in Kagari, Keio Plaza Hotel.

Appetiser - Cherry Blossom Flavoured Tofu with Dried Young Sardine, Pickled Flowers and Wild Plants
The appetiser already hit us with a bang omg. The tofu was really, really soft with a hint of sweet cherry blossom scent.

This was not in the list, but Keiko-san ordered it for us to try! Tempuras in Japan are definitely a must-try, as they taste really different from what you can get here!

Second appetiser - Sashimi Plate
Needless to say, the sashimi was super fresh!!

Ok, this was not a part of the course as well, but Keiko-san just wanted to feed us with more authentic Japanese food hahahah! The flesh was fresh and firm!

Third dish - Grilled Cutlass Fish
Usually this kind of fish has a strong fishy smell if not cooked/processed well, but this is not the case at all and is super fresh and tasty!

The steamed egg was great but I dared not try the soft-shelled turtle though.
