    First Michelin Star for Japanish Chef

    Yoshizumi Nagaya is the first Asian Chef in Germany who is awarded with a Michelin Star (2010) and as an Asian Origin and Japenese Fan, I was dyingly and very willingly to let my eyes (!) n tongue spoiled by their masterpiece(s) and I was very thankfull to my generous Cavalier for this fantastic venture.

    After the not so long wait (Reservation is a Must!) we landed at the Best Japanese Restaurant in this country! We chose OMAKASE - the breathtaking 16 Course Menu - plus a glass of a very nice Japanese Champagne.

    To be honest my tummy was somehow satisfied that I didnt have to stuff myself with a Kebab or Burger at the Fast Food Stall. No worries! After this 'adventure' I wont let those heavy but Yummy German Trad.food, Kebabs, Pizzas and Burgers down!

    Anyway, I have a tiny silly (open) question: why did Nagaya go to Milan and learnt at NOBU for his further skills? I mean, japanish Restaurant n Italy? Or is that bec of the next Armani/NOBU's Branch?

    We chose OMAKASE - the breathtaking 16 Course Menu - with very reasonable price of 98 € ( incl. tax n service) plus a glass of a very nice Japanese Champagne for 14 €

    Hard to give a vote:
    3 for the food quality
    4 for the atmosphere and the service (not perfect)
    5 for the presentation of foods

    so if you want to impress your girlfriend and you're not afraid to spend 100 euros each, that's a good choice.
    But as for food, there are better sushi at one third of the price.

    i was once here last year and i really enjoyed it. so, i came back again this year with a big expectation. i almost asked the cook why he still does not have a star. but i was too shy at first. i ordered the big menu. and as the food started, i was not so enthusiasted anymore. i did not like enjoy the ideas and the combinations of the cook. after the menu, i understood why the restaurant still did not have a star. also, the preparation of the dishes were not that perfect. the fish could have been cut better etc etc.... pity.
