Daitokai, a Japanese show in Europa Center

daitokai1I’ve been wanting to try Japanese cuisine for some time now, not liking fish, it’s not that easy since most of places only serve sushis. So I looked up and found about Daitokai in the Europa Center in Charlottenburg.

The place is lovely, exclusively Japanese staff, a small pond inside, all tables have a cooking area, since most of the dishes are cooked directly at your table, a cook comes and cooks in front of you. a real show!

The staff is very friendly, the waitresses are wearing kimonos, sometimes communication is complicated, some of the cooks speak broken German, so when the guests also speak broken German, it can be funny. 🙂 I had a Japanese cocktail with sake, cointreau and vodka, was quite nice.

I had a Teppan-Yaki for starter, I chose Toriyaki, chicken with teriyaki sauce. When the cook arrives, he presents us the ingredients and start grilling, When the meat is done, he cuts it (since you have only chopsticks that’s better) and then cooks the sauce on the cooking area. Really something interesting to observe.

For the main course I had some beef, perfectly cooked, really tasty, tender, delicious! Some of my friends had one the plate with sea food and hummers, they loved it. You get also grilled vegetables and a bowl of sticky rice. We all loved our food.

The prices are quite high, but for the quality of the food and the fact you get your own cook, it’s really worth it. An excellent spot!
