Since there is no menu, I cannot list the names of the dishes. It was my first time visiting him, but the atmosphere was completely different from that of Mr. Koju, where I was trained.
The cooking was inherited from Mr. Koju...
Mr. Koju was feeling nervous and a little tired at the counter, so he had to use a private room, but Mr. Noguchi enjoyed the meal as he had lively conversations with the customers next to him.

The quality of the food depends on where you train. The restaurant received one Michelin star in its second year of operation, and has become a new Japanese restaurant in Minato Ward, along with Akasaka Ogino.

The other day, I had some great food at Akasaka Ogino, so I was very interested in visiting Akasaka Ogino, where I also train and have a brother-student relationship with Mr. Ogino.

The owner, Shotaro Noguchi, trained at my favorite Japanese restaurants, Koju in Ginza and Higuchi in Jingumae, and became independent in January 2022. It is a new famous Japanese restaurant that received a Michelin star within a year.

First dish: Fresh sea urchin, edamame, and grilled eggplant. Soft grilled eggplant is my favorite ingredient. The wasabi and plenty of sea urchin make me happy. The edamame provides a contrasting texture.

Second dish...Okoze, Manganji chili pepper, and fried corn. The tempura brings out the deliciousness of the fresh ingredients, and the texture is also really delicious.

Third dish: Steamed figs with sake. The elegant sweetness of the figs is simply exquisite. It was my first time having sake-steamed figs, and they went well with the bean paste on top.

Fourth item: Kurumatsu nigiri wrapped in fragrant seaweed. The greasy kromtsu was full of flavor and the scent of seaweed was very good.

Fifth dish: A bowl made with seasonal conger eel. A heavenly dish of fluffy conger eel served with flavor-packed soup stock.

Sixth item: Red sea bream and surf clam sashimi. The fresh taste of the springy red sea bream and the crunchy sweetness and umami of the surf clam go well with the wasabi.

Seventh item...Sashimi of striped horse mackerel, which is in season now, and has a great texture and fatty flavor.

Eighth item: Salt-grilled young sweetfish caught in the Tenryu River. The salty sweetfish is delicious, and the bitterness of the sweetfish goes well with the dark beer.
This combination is an iron plate combination that was also seen at "Akasaka Ogino".

Ninth item: Dolce Dream corn, which has a sugar content of 18 and is sweeter than fruit. The origin of the word delicious is sweet. The corn was fragrant and sweet, and it was the most delicious suribashi dish.

Tenth dish: Karasumi mochi, which is served with soft rice cakes and has an exquisite accent of karasumi. It was a dish that goes well with Japanese sake.

Eleventh item: A combination of Noheji turnips and boiled conger eel, the taste of the turnips soaking up the soup stock and the soft conger eel with the aroma of real Japanese pepper is wonderfully delicious.

Twelfth item: A small bowl of eel. When you bite into it, the surface is crispy and fragrant, followed by the fluffy meat. It's a pity that I finished eating it so quickly!

Thirteenth item: Rice cooked with black-throated seaweed and corn. The rich fat of Nodoguro makes the corn taste like butter corn.
This was so delicious that I had to refill it many times. The finest cooked rice.

Fourteenth item: Beef bowl with boiled beef sigure. For the last three dishes, Mr. Noguchi kept giving us extra refills, so we had to refill them over and over again until our stomachs were full.
It was delicious anyway

Fifteenth item: white azuki bean and brown sugar syrup ice cream. The ice cream is also delicious, with a crispy texture and a nice aroma.
It wasn't too sweet and it was a very satisfying meal until the last dessert.

Following "Akasaka Ogino" the other day, "Nishiazabu Noguchi". Brothers and disciples who trained at one of Japan's most famous restaurants soon became independent in the same Minato Ward. Both became famous restaurants that received Michelin stars soon after opening.

Because we trained in the same place, we had a number of dishes with the same basics but different expressions, and while they were both exquisite, we were able to enjoy the differences and it turned out to be a very good meal.

It was a wonderful shop.
