Edo Mirakuchaya Sora Machi Tei: Tokyo 2017
One of the things that quickly becomes obvious when dining in Tokyo is that most restaurants are small and specialize in their own niche of foods. So if you’re in the mood for a little bit of this and a little bit of that… it becomes exponentially harder to find a place that will meet your needs.
While visiting Tokyo Skytree (the tallest structure in Japan), we found ourselves in one such dilemma. Now, there are tons of restaurants in the Skytree complex but nothing really stood out to us so we wound up going back to Edo Mirakuchaya Sora Machi Tei which we visited the previous year. This restaurant is on the large size and there wasn’t a wait to get in (another benefit as we were getting hungry).
We started with a non-alcoholic cassis drink (486円) and a shochu with yuzu (432円). Both drinks were quite good and we were pleasantly surprised that we enjoyed the shochu.
The restaurant itself is very tourist friendly as they have menus in English with plenty of pictures.
We started with an appetizer of Pickled Cucumber (324円) which we found to be a bit too sour (unlike the ones we had at Araka in Osaka). We followed that up with the Grilled Scallops with Butter and Soy Sauce (810円) which were amazingly tender.
We finished off our meal with an order of their Daily Special Sashimi (2160円). On the menu, it says that this is for 2-3 people but I could eat this all by myself. There were two types of tuna, salmon, tako, ebi, hamachi, yellowtail, and a very tender mackerel.
Overall, very solid eats here in a comfortable environment.
