Orenofenchi, Akasaka (俺のフレンチ 赤阪) / Saryoutsujiri (茶寮都路里 大丸東京店)

Ore no French
My 3rd visit to this popular and wallet friendly chain which serves upscale food at public friendly prices. We arrived 1 hour before it opened on a weekday and since Akasaka is mainly comprising of offices, the crowd is much less in the afternoons. We were lucky to be offered the last table available as someone had cancelled their reservation. Yeah! This is the first time I get to sit down to eat here as most of the time they only have their standing tables available. We waited in a near Mcdonald’s until it was 11:25am, this was already the lunch time line for their 11:30 opening.

The restaurant was filled up when it opened and there was a never ending stream of customers till we left at 1pm.

No doubt, always go for their limited dishes! Some of the more expensive menus are available on a limited basis and once sold out you cannot order it. So 1st things of course was their lobster pasta in tomato sauce (1680JPY)

Akasaka limited steak with a layer of grated radish. The meat was a little tough in my opinion. In a land of miniture food, the portion served by Orenofenchi is always huge so it would the place to go to if you go in a group.

Since this eatery is a French/Italian branch, they also offere pizza and pastas in their menus. This onsen egg cheese pizza is highly recommended. They served the half boiled eggs right up to you and mixed it up before cutting the pizza. IT was sooooooooooo GOOD!

Ore no French
Our all time favorite – steak with foe gras. The steak was done just nice which was soft and tender.

Tiramisu was great too…Just by typing this post, I am getting hungry for their food again.

Next, we headed to this traditional dessert shop that originated from Kyoto for our dessert. They have a branch in Daimaru Tokyo Station. My Taiwan friends raved about how good the green tea desserts are.

If you love Japanese tea, this would be the place for you but I think the prices here are little high.

I got a cup of of maccha tea float with green tea ice cream. The green tea was really thick and very green tea-y.

Daimaru Autumn limited edition parfait, looks really overwhelming.

Shaved ice with green tea syrup, you can request for half half which means only one side is green tea for the the shaved ice.

There is a big mural of Hello Kitty at Tokyo Station. I guess by this time, the whole world would have know that Hello Kitty is not a cat but a girl? (laugh)

    The food at the Akasaka restaurant looks amazing. I consider my foodie days are over temporarily because it’s so hard to go to a restaurant just for the hell of it. I’ll just have to drool over your photos haha!
