Established in 1760 in Ningyocho, Tamahide in Tokyo’s Ningyocho district is known as the birthplace of oyakodon, a classic Japanese comfort food. It remains one of the best places to enjoy the dish, which consists of chicken and silky beaten eggs, simmered in sweet-and-savory dashi broth, atop a bowl of steamed rice. Tamahide’s version uses ‘shamo’ chicken, an especially delicious breed of chicken unique to Japan — not to be missed when you’re in Tokyo! Not just an oyakodon specialist, Tamahide also offers other delectable dishes all prepared with shamo chicken. In fact, in its first 100+ years of operations, chicken sukiyaki was its specialty, until its fifth-generation owners invented oyakodon in the late 1800s. Your set meal booking includes both premium oyakodon and chicken-and-foie-gras sukiyaki hotpot, as well as other appetizers and side dishes. Indulge in a multi-course meal that includes: - An appetizer platter - A chicken side dish - Premium oyakodon - Chicken-and-foie-gras sukiyaki hotpot - Custard pudding As a treat, you’ll get a complimentary drink — many course meals at Japanese restaurants do not include drinks. What’s more, you’ll also enjoy Tamahide's old-school ambiance, as you dine in traditional Japanese-style interiors: a ‘shoji’ door at the entrance, tatami seating, and memorabilia and decor dating back to the Edo period. Book now to dine at one of Japan’s oldest restaurants — practically an institution in the Japanese culinary scene!
