A morning in Tai Koo led me to the Ichikawa restaurant for lunch. Unlike Japanese restaurants in London, the owners had worked at giving the restaurant a traditional ‘Japanese’ feel with wooden paneling and posts that evoke the country’s traditional architecture. Thankfully the seating was suitably modern and western in style.
The food was a mix of Japanese dishes. I opted for tempura which came with a light, crisp batter that had no greasy residue. This came with miso soup and a side salad. There was more than enough there for my lunch. Combine this with the kind of service that Hong Kong is famous for to make a no-nonsense winner of a Japanese restaurant.
