With a menu that’s over ten pages long, ordering at Inagiku can be a little overwhelming at first glance. Here’s our list of the five best things to order:
1. Kaiseki menu. This allows you to try a bit of everything. All you have to do is pick a price range, and the chef will do the rest.
2. Tempura platter. Inagiku started more than 150 years ago as a tiny tempura restaurant in Hamamachi, Japan, and its frying technique remains tops — sweet potato becomes velvety, the flesh of king crab claws only intensifies in sweetness.
3. Chirashi sushi. For something on the lighter side, a bowl of chirashi sushi makes for an elegant meal — the rice is perfectly cooked and fragrant, with fresh, glistening seafood poised on top.
4. Sashimi. The sashimi here is also top of the line, so a seasonal assortment is sure to be the best the house has to offer.
5. Sake or tea. The sake list is quite impressive with some very special and rare bottles. There’s also a lovely list of teas. Be sure to order one or both of these with your meal
