Fresh Tempura Bar Dinner With The Sugimotos

The Sugimotos who own a few posh wine bars in Ginza always know the best places to get a gourmet meal.

This year they introduced us to the concept of a fresh tempura bar. We sat on the top floor of a luxurious hotel and watched as a tempura chef prepared fresh hot tempura in a brass vat right before us. The Kaiseki meal was full of pleasant surprises as each new dish was a work of art for both the tongue and the eye.

The last picture? Deep fried shrimp head and tiny crabs ~ I couldn't eat mine and was properly scolded.
