Tohkalin, Hotel Okura Tokyo (桃花林 ホテルオークラ東京 赤坂), Akasaka, Tokyo, Japan

 
The one of the famous restaurant in the palace of gastronomy at Tokyo.

 

The Tohkalin is Cantonese restaurant in Hotel Okura Tokyo. This restaurant served traditional Cantonese style cuisine.  

The interior was based on the middle of Qing dynasty (1644-1911AD). A lot of porcelain were displayed on the shelves. The China ware was come from the Jingdezhen design which was very basic design of the Chinese porcelain paint. The contrast of dark brown shelves and white curtain were nice accent in the restaurant.

 

From hors d'oeuvres, the crispy roast pork was one of the signature dish in this restaurant. The roast pork was nicely cooked taste and had the crispy skin on it.

 
The shark fin soup is the top of the signatures from this restaurant. The paichi meaning beautifully formed fin was lovely displayed on the dish. The soup was very sticky like gelatine from the shark fin. The texture was lovely. Each fibre is felt in our mouth and has elasticity.

The restaurant in Hotel Okura Tokyo will temporally close till the south wing renovation completed. This visit will be the last one for me in the Okura main building.

There are a lot of memories in this restaurant dishes.  My relative had a lot of party at this hotel and had been served the dishes from this restaurant. Each dish has each memory for us.
