The food was just incredible. 14 courses, so evenly balanced and immaculately presented - it was one of those experiences you just want other foodie’s to enjoy and share. If anyone is familiar with Noma’s menu then there are definitely familiar courses given a Japanese spin, but Rene Redzepi is a fan and supporter so there is no stepping on anyone’s toes here. Really a must for the Tokyo Gourmand!
At this restaurant, located nine floors up in the Iidabashi district of Tokyo, impressive skyline views form a backdrop to an unusual fusion cuisine. The name Inua is derived from Innuit mythology, and refers to the life force and spirit of nature. The menu of Japanese dishes with a Scandinavian twist is masterminded by German chef Thomas Frebel – formerly head of research and development at Noma in Copenhagen. For him, seasonal takes on a whole new meaning, as ingredients are sourced based on 72 ‘microseasons’ that last around five days, taking full advantage of the fleeting gastronomical riches each month brings.
