Fluffy french toast
Hotel Okura Tokyo is a place that exudes a traditional Japanese beauty, and offers a relaxing environment. This place is famous for its french toast at Dining Café Camellia. It is said that more than 50 years ago, the head chef at the time brought the recipe back from America and made it at the restaurant. The fine, hotel-made sandwich bread is soaked in egg yolk for 24 hours. Afterwards, it is fried in heated, clarified butter until it becomes brownish, and is then thoroughly baked in the oven. It is best eaten when freshly baked to enjoy its soft and bloated souffle-like texture. But first add as much maple syrup and butter as you would like.
Suke6 Diner is located in front of Sukerokuyume-dori Street in Asakusa and Hanagawado. L'Atelier which manages FACTORY, a bread factory in Kudanminami, among others, opened this diner with the goal of letting anyone eat a delicious, comforting meal anytime. Many people said that they felt relaxed after eating the diner's English breakfast served on a frying pan. The breakfast includes eggs raised on the Miura Peninsula in Kanagawa, thoroughly grilled seasonal vegetables, which were personally purchased by the owner himself and transported in a truck, and handmade bacon and sausage. Plain bread made from wheat from Tokachi, Hokkaido, is baked daily in the factory on the 3rd floor called Manufacture.
