Had an action packed three day weekend . Spent a wonderful evening at a farewell dinner for a friend at “El Camino” in Akasaka. After which we went bar hopping, karaoke & landed up early next morning eating at ‘Chinese Cafe 8.’ So, you can understand the state I was in the next day. Well, to even out the rich oily food & drinks I decided to eat healthy & landed up for dinner the next day at “Nouka no Daidokoro” which literally translates to Farmers Kitchen.

They have some great deals for lunch but we were there for dinner (¥4102 The course included a buffet salad bar, where a chef continuously replenished the bowls with freshly cut, succulent, crispy & crunchy vegetables. I forgot how many trips I made to the salad bar !! You are then served chilled corn soup followed by small portions of batter fried yam, carpaccio of ham & a quiche, exquisitely presented on a platter, garnished with a lot of veggies. Next came a dish of thin slivers of beef which you had to grill on a miniature hot plate & a dish of steamed fish, shrimps, clams and cabbage all wrapped in a plastic bag which was cut open in front of you, releasing a burst of captivating aromas. A bowl of rice topped with a stewed tomato floating in its juices, miso soup and a farm fresh raw egg followed. Dessert was fresh yogurt topped with strawberry purée. Barley tea was served all through the meal.

Overall, it was a fulfilling dining experience. If you stand at Shinjuku sanchome crossing with Isetan behind you & the JTB building adjacent to your right, you will see the Louis Vuitton store right in front of you. Cross the road & turn left, you will see a lingerie store on your right. There is an elevator in that building that will take you to the 4th floor.
