It's got an unlikely location – a nondescript Nishi-Azabu back alley – but everything else about Kikuchi screams refined quality. Serving up traditional, disarmingly simple home cooking as part of a multitude of customisable prix fixe courses, it's earned a rather surprising two Michelin stars while maintaing an admirably humble attitude. The pot-cooked Koshihikari rice is to die for.
