The Omelet Rice and Beef Stew at the Shiseido Parlor Ginza Restaurant in Tokyo
Shiseido Parlor is a high-class Western-style restaurant that opened in 1902.
It enjoys a well-established reputation for polished service as well as its beautiful, elegant and traditional Western meals.
In addition to the Tokyo Ginza flagship, restaurants have been opened in Shinjuku, Nihonbashi, Yokohama and Nagoya.
This time, I had lunch on the 4th floor of the Ginza restaurant.
In this building, the shop is on the first floor, the cafe is on the third floor, and the restaurant occupies the fourth and fifth floors. The third floor cafe was crowded.
Beef Stew, a Popular Dish Since it Opened
The Shiseido Parlor-style beef stew is ¥3500 (with bread or rice). For an additional ¥1540, it can be ordered as a set meal including the daily soup, salad and coffee or black tea.
*There is a separate service charge of 10%.
※Menu in Japanese：ビーフシチュー資生堂パーラースタイル。
※The beef stew is a limited seasonal menu item, so be sure to check if it is served on the day you wish to visit.
Simmered for four days, the demi-glace sauce is full of "umami" flavor.
The sauce is rich but not at all heavy or greasy, making it truly delicious!
The ingredients are beef shank, large potato chunks, carrots, onions and broccoli.
The meat is so thick, juicy and tender!
Among all the items on the menu at Shiseido Parlor, the beef stew is my favorite!
Dipping the bread into the stew and eating them together is the best!
Today's soup was a golden consommé. Full of vegetables, it had a wonderful aroma!
For the salad, you can choose from two dressings: French or Japanese-style.
At the end of the meal, the coffee comes with 3 little cookies.
It's so nice to have such thoughtful service!
The Always-Popular Omelet Rice!
When we say, "Shiseido Parlor", we think of omelet rice!
Omelet Rice ¥2470 + a 10% Service Charge.
At first, I was so surprised by its beauty that I thought it looked fake!
Covering the omelet is not ketchup but a tomato sauce made with a fond de volaille (chicken broth) base.
Inside the egg omelet, there is chicken rice. Full of chicken, onions and mushrooms, it features a lot of ingredients!
Since the egg is only partially-cooked on the inside, it mixes well with the chicken rice, making this a delicious dish!
I was surprised by the variety of relishes that came with the omelet rice.
There were Japanese leek pickles, onion pickles, vegetables pickled in soy sauce, even Mandarin oranges.
While cleansing my palate, i enjoyed them all until the end of the meal.
When I visited, it was a little late for lunch. I had a wonderful time in the open, comfortable atmosphere!
Whether alone, with your family or someone special, this is a superb restaurant to come and enjoy a meal on any special occasion!
