A Tiny, Hidden Restaurant In Shibuya

Today, I’m going to talk about my absolute favourite find in Tokyo, which is a very small, hidden restaurant named Brasserie La Dame Aux Camelias. It’s nestled right at the edge of Shibuya. There are two floors in this restaurant, but I’d recommend being on the first floor which is bar-style and you get to interact with the owner of the restaurant, Masa.

Here, he serves European food – think German, Belgian and French. Masa himself has worked as chef in Dusseldorf for a couple of years, and his food (as judged by my very European boyfriend) is very authentic and tastes like home!

Ba dum dum, time for the food!

Welcome to the best kept secret of Tokyo!
I sat in front of the bar, where I could watch Masa cook!
The first on the menu was pickled goya, which was a seasonal specialty. It was the perfect complement of saltiness and bitterness!
Pomme Frittes – SOOOO good. Served with raw onions, mayo and ketchup, my boyfriend and I gobbled it down in like, three seconds.
Foie gras. Deeeee-licious.
Perfectly crispy skin with the juiciest chicken inside. We usually order two when we come because it’s so good!
Come on. Seriously, how can you resist this?
A deer steak. I felt a little bit bad, because I’d spend the previous week playing with deer in Hiroshima, but it really was very yummy…
