[Tokyo] Ete by Natsuko Shoji - Asia's Best Female Chef

Rating: 4.25/5 A delightful lunch at  Ete  by Chef Natsuko Shoji  who was named Asia’s Best Female Chef and Asia's Best Pastry Chef in recent years! While she rose to fame for her stunning fruit-topped cakes inspired by fashion, it doesn’t mean that Natsuko only excels in desserts - quite the contrary, her savory dishes were equally impressive as well. It's not surprising given that she had trained at 2*  Florilege  with Chef Hiroyasu Kawate. With just one table per service, it’s one of the most exclusive reservation in Tokyo and dining at Ete feels more like eating at a friend’s house than a restaurant - what a special experience! Our meal started with a vintage Tattinger champagne - the chef  loves champagne and her choice of wines matched very well with our dishes. Sea Urchin Cracker with salted egg yolk and Gruyère cheese - a delicious bite that went perfectly with the champagne. One of the most impressive courses was this gorgeous Meyer Lemon with sea bream aged for 10 d
