Tokyo is an explorer’s dream and a food-lover’s paradise. It’s the tsukune you eat at 2 am in a bar the size of a cupboard. It’s the cotton cheesecake you devour after lining up for 45 minutes with a bunch of excited teenagers. It’s the ramen you slurp after punching your order into a vending machine. It’s the tonkatsu you buy in a vast train-station basement. Like the city itself, Tokyo Local honours the traditional cuisine that is cherished by locals and fervently adored by visitors, while embracing the modern trends that are defining the Tokyo of today. Tokyo Local is packed full of delicious yet approachable recipes, so you can recreate the magic of Tokyo at home.
