The Dentucky fried chicken changes every time we visit. This one was filled with sticky rice and edamame. Yum! 😋

Back for the second time in almost as many weeks. The hospitality and great food merits frequent visits. This time, being the world champion of omotenashi, the Japanese are of hospitality, they cooked me the hana-sansho rice in a donabe, one of my favourite variations and only when in season. To top it up they produced another rice with sautéed mushrooms.

Back at Den for the spring menu. Some classics like the fried chicken and some new dishes like the veal cheek with Japanese truffles. The latter being the star of the menu. The rice in two versions, firefly squid and mountain vegetables.
den is famous for its omotenashi which is truly unparalleled but I like it for its food. It is modern but respects the rules, it is tasty and very well executed. It tries to surprise but always does.

(SWIPE TO SEE MORE PICS) : Final Cacio e Pepe “En Vessie”. Perfectly al dente, with just the right amount of peppery pecorino sauce coating each rigatoni. So good. The recipe does not change but the texture did vary in different location. Because when something so simple with so few ingredients, every detail - water, temperature, etc counts.

Many people asked me why use the pig’s bladder to cook the pasta? The last picture is the answer #LiDen84 #Lido84xDen #littlemeg_best2019... More

The most important meal for me on New Year day today is to have Den’s osechi! This has been my tradition now ever since I had my first osechi by Team Den. The contents are about the same as these items have specific symbolic meanings so they are not supposed to be omitted or changed drastically. You can see the item list in the last pic and most of the explanations are in my old posts (#littlemeg_osechi2018 , #littlemeg_osechi2019 ) This year a new item to replace the pork... More

Collaborative dinners and pop ups can often be a mixed bag, but I had a lot of fun at the #gelinaz shuffle this year. Coconuts and banana leaves in the communal table at @zaiyuhasegawa’s Den told us we were in for something fun. The crew did a great job of interpreting Thai flavors, but very much in the Den spirit. Turns out our mystery restaurant twin for the night was @ledubkk - which almost no one guessed.

Zaiyu Hasegawa
WB 50 Chefs’ Choice Award 2019

Zaiyu cooks a modern kaiseki meal. He follows the rules, uses great ingredients and has a flawless technique.

However then he takes the stiff- and stuffiness out of the whole experience and infuses it with unparalleled omotenashi and fun.
This creates an addictive mixture which is impossible not to fall for.

No wonder he won all of these accolades, but don't get me wrong, the food by itself is worth a visit.

Den. No need to say anything else. Just delightful from start to finish. A few dishes pictured here. And they dressed Puchi Jr. (@puchi.jr) up in the costume I brought him in January!

The whole Den family was as lovely as always, and another fantastic meal. And Puchi seems to tolerate the hat :)

on 17 Jan 2018

My little gift for @puchi.jr - a chef’s hat and bandana with his name on it.
