2019 Tokyo Food Crawl - Day 3 Dinner: "OSTREA Oyster Bar" - Japanese Oysters and Comfort Food

Charles Yu | Mar 7, 201908:00 PM    

My friend will need to attend to personal business on Day 4. As such, I have booked a full day tour on the same day to do some sight seeing and kill some time. Since I need to get up and be at the rendezvous place pretty early, for dinner, we decided to have something close-by so that I can head back to my place and retire early. Besides, it has started to rain.

For a change of scenery, we decided to try out some seasonal Japanese oysters at an oyster bar in Roppongi. Three different big and chewy varietals were chosen, one of which was HUGE....the length of my hand!

However, the surprise of the evening...or may be even my entire trip was what I had afterwards! Looking at the limited menu and trying to avoid some more gluten in my diet ( had too much lovely bread at Quintessence lunch time ), a ' Braised Wagyu Beef Cheek with Red Wine ' caught my eyes. Man! Did I make the correct choice. That fork tender piece of protein, with just the right touch of soft gelatinous tendons and bathed in a rich dark color, uber-delicious complex sauce was just heavenly! I am not joking but it can easily rub shoulder with Paris Josephine chez Dumonet famous Boeuf Bourguignon any day! Really THAT good!!

Oh! BTW, to finish off another enjoyable meal and a great day, my friend and I both suffered from a mild case of diarrhea!!....may be those giant size oysters with giant bugs?! Oops!!
