In association with Trunk Hotel
Whether you’re an avid foodie or just hoping to enjoy a quality meal with friends and family, look no further than Shibuya’s trendy Trunk Hotel, situated just off Cat Street between Shibuya and Harajuku. The hotel’s lively Trunk Kitchen is a diverse restaurant serving up nutritionally balanced meals with international flair, with influences from French, American and Japanese cuisines.
No matter if you’re looking for a place to dine during the holiday season or just a destination for your next weekend brunch, here’s what you can look forward to at Trunk Kitchen.
1. Enjoy an exclusive dinner at the Chef’s Table
Treat yourself to a very special dinner at the Chef’s Table, where you’ll have one of the restaurant’s chefs preparing a meal of local, seasonal ingredients right before your eyes. This unique dining space is situated right next to the kitchen, so can see all the magic happen.
Enjoy a fusion of flavours during the meal along with Japanese wine from eastern Tokyo’s Fukagawa Winery; from freshly caught fish and livestock raised in Tokyo to locally grown Edo vegetables, each ingredient is picked with care from trusted producers for the freshest dining experience possible.
2. Dig into a nutritionally balanced brunch
Start your day off on the right foot with a balanced brunch at Trunk Kitchen. Dine on a mix of Japanese, French and American flavours featured in a traditional Japanese brunch, which includes one type of soup broth and three simple side dishes. Showcasing elements of both Japanese and Western cuisine, it’s the perfect representation of Tokyo’s diverse food scene and makes for a brunch that both visitors and locals can enjoy.
3. Celebrate with a festive Christmas dinner
’Tis the season to ring in the holidays with a decadent meal. Offered only between December 22 and 25, Trunk Kitchen’s full-on festive feast is focused on combining elements of Japanese and Western cuisine for a rather offbeat Christmas dinner.
Start off with a course of unique appetisers followed by a fish, main entrée and, of course, a decadent Christmas dessert to end the evening in good taste. You can even book the Chef’s Table for a private Christmas dinner experience featuring holiday classics including roast turkey and cranberry sauce with a Japanese twist.
4. Taste healthy, local fare
Focusing on a health-conscious menu, Trunk Kitchen serves up tasty dishes using fresh, local ingredients from producers in and around Tokyo. Not only supporting local farmers and producers, the use of these ingredients aids in sharing delicious, healthy produce with diners around Tokyo.
From organic vegetables grown by farmers in Chiba to locally raised livestock, you know you’re getting only the best stuff. Trunk Kitchen is also very accommodating, offering gluten-free dining options and meals that take into account dietary restrictions and allergies.
5. Dine al fresco, any time of the year
Need a bit of fresh air? Grab a seat on the spacious terrace, which can be enjoyed year-round, whatever the weather. During the cooler months, the eating terrace is sectioned off and covered so you can make the most of the outdoor atmosphere without shivering your day away.
