Founded in 1902, Shiseido Parlour is a pioneer of Japanese-style 'Western' cuisine (yoshoku), i.e. omu-rice, croquettes and the like. At the restaurant, one menu item sure to raise eyebrows is a course featuring curry rice topped off with lobster and abalone, which includes the chef flambéing them at your table. Of course, it's quite the luxury option and will set you back around ¥10,000 (plus a service charge). Meanwhile, the third-floor café specialises in sweet treats like old-school ice cream soda (popular for well over a century now, we hear) and fruit parfaits, including a strawberry version (¥1,800) that contains enough milk and ice cream to make a lactose-intolerant person break a cold sweat at first sight.
