Travel: Fine Dining @ Ginza, Tokyo

Day 4: hama steak house tokyo
I was invited to the authentic Hama Steak House @ Ginza by an old friend of mine for dinner. This cozy old-establishment with a team of all-male servers, started in 1971 & prides themselves using the best quality of beef roast & fillet to provide the best steak in front of customers. I was waltzed into a rich-wood, high-society atmosphere, with an experience of style, fine delicacies & serenity. I later learnt that the restaurant entertains celebrities & diplomats when they're in town.

I was looking forward to enjoying the art of grilling, teppanyaki style. I was pleased to be presented the recommended Chef's Course, as it embraced all my favourite food. Best part, I don't have to crack my head, deciding which to pick.

Special of the Day was Chilled Pumpkin Soup. Wonder if it's the trend now. Everywhere I go, even in Singapore, I seemed to be getting this Pumpkin Soup. Not that I'm complaining, the soup is delicious..... but is it a fad? hama steak house tokyo pumpkin soupThe appetizer was nothing peculiar. Maybe I wasn't interested at all as I was distracted by the Chef bringing out the fresh Foie Gras. I was getting impatient & I tried hard not to show my excitement. I can never get enough of this precious 'jewel'.

The moment has finally arrived. The Chef politely greeted us & started preparing MY Foie Gras. It was a joy watching him treating the gourmet with such tender, loving care. hama steak house ginza tokyo teppanyakiIt's Foie-gras-licious, one of the tastiest Teppan Foie Gras I've ever eaten. It was well pan-fried to perfection so much so that I was afraid the exquisite foie gras convergence may never happen again. hama steak house tokyo foie grasThe next dish, Sauteed seafood - King Crabmeat, was also another brilliant selection. I don't need any sauce at all to go with this fresh, juicy crabmeat. Gosh, it was so tasty! hama steak house tokyo king crabGood food just kept coming. I could see the fresh Abalone wriggled as the Chef put it onto the grill. hama steak house tokyo teppanyaki abaloneSuddenly, my Japanese friend alerted me when a young, sexy blonde hostess flashed passed us, together with a middle-age man. The couple was ushered into a private room. Oops! I meant a VIP dining area. My friend explained, couple of night clubs share the same building. So it's not an unusual sight to see rich men taking the karaoke hostesses or "mama-san" to dine here. But I wasn't really bothered as they were quite discreet. Besides, one or two doesn't spoil the lovely ambience I was having.

The commotion was interrupted by the Chef. Yes, my Abalone was ready. At the suggestion of the Chef, I dipped the pieces of Abalone into a home-made sauce. Wow! The combination of both titillated my tastebuds & I was flushing with gratitude. hama steak house tokyo abaloneLook at how beautifully the Chef had lined the garlic together with the Sauteed Asparagus. It was truly a gastronomic work of art that pleases both eye & palate.hama steak house tokyo japanese teppanyakiThe Chef presented us our premium beef & proudly invited me to snap a picture, which I did. I chose to have the Tenderloin while my friend preferred Sirloin. hama steak house tokyo wagyu beefThe Chef explained it's the finest Japanese black cattle beef (A-5) & certainly it was. The beef melted in my mouth without me having to chew. I may have exaggerated a little but it's true. At medium-well, the cut was tender & juicy & it was so appetizing. hama steak house tokyo teppanyaki wagyu beefGood times must come to an end. The meal concluded with the usual Garlic Rice & Miso with Clams. hama steak house tokyo miso clam soupWe were then ushered to a separate lounge area to have our desserts & coffee/tea. hama steak house lounge tokyoDinner was gorgeous & needless to say, service was flawless.  A top-notch Chef Course @ ¥18,900 or US$200 per person, which includes some of the world's finest gems, plus diligent Chefs & excellent servers, it's not an unreasonable price to call for especially in an expensive country like Japan. I was satisfied & speechless. Day 5 continues with Fly The World's Largest Plane - A380!

  3. How elegant and yet simple. Thank you for the pictures of your beautiful meal.:) I've been in Japanese steak houses, but this is different. We don't get foix gras in the ones we have here.:) Or abalone.:) I have had shrimp and lobster, though.

  4. It's really hard taking pictures in the dim-lighting condition with my 8 megapixel camera. Wonder if anyone has better tips on photo taking...
