After a night of drinking and enjoying Tokyo’s lifestyle you dig in for a bowl of just anything, not quite. This is donburi, a rice bowl topped with simmering chicken and shishito long green pepper. The contrast between the crispy nor and tare adds a sweetness and the contrast between the soft rice, warm chicken, and the crunch of the grilled peppers. The idea of a bowl of cucumber looks just as perfect; perfectly sliced “kuri’ sits over a bed of crisp lettuce and is oiled just right. These simple foods are more sophisticated than you think.
