Tokyo’s Thai fu­sion

Vacations & Travel - - Global dining -

Aus­tralian foodie favourite Lon­grain has opened its doors in Tokyo, bring­ing fresh, punchy Thai flavours to savvy Ja­panese din­ers. Oc­cu­py­ing the 39th floor of the Ye­bisu Gar­den Place Tower in the trendy neigh­bour­hood of Ebisu, the 160-seater res­tau­rant’s dishes are in­spired by local, seasonal Ja­panese pro­duce but have a mod­ern Thai spin. Like its sis­ter restau­rants, Lon­grain Syd­ney and Lon­grain Mel­bourne, the Tokyo menu fuses Thai and South East Asian influences, with a mix of hot, sour, salty and sweet flavours. In ad­di­tion to rice and noo­dle dishes, sig­na­ture items in­clude bite-size be­tel leaves, the fa­mous eggnet, sticky caramelised pork hock and aro­matic cur­ries, with a se­lec­tion of Aus­tralian and in­ter­na­tional wines and ex­pertly crafted cock­tails. Warm and wel­com­ing, Tokyo Lon­grain car­ries on the tra­di­tion of Lon­grain’s sig­na­ture re­laxed vibe cou­pled with a classic in­te­rior. Fea­tur­ing art­works by Syd­ney artist Christo­pher Hodges, it pays homage to the orig­i­nal Lon­grain res­tau­rant, which opened in Syd­ney in 1999 and took the local culi­nary scene by storm. lon­grain.com
