We introduce four carefully selected Japanese restaurants that represent the Kamakura atmosphere. All of them, from the famous dashimaki omelet shop to the restaurant serving creative kaiseki cuisine and another serving lunch sets made by chefs trained in Kyoto, are truly recommended. Treat yourself to an elegant and delicate meal.
This is a famous tamagoyaki Japanese omelet shop that always has a line. The thick tamagoyaki made with four eggs per serving is the perfect fluffiness and has the rich aroma of the secret dashi stock and a soft sweetness. The popular menu item is the tamagoyaki gozen set. The restaurant also has tamagoyaki made with eight eggs available for takeout at 1,300 JPY.
This restaurant just opened on February 16, 2017. It serves creative kaiseki-style Japanese cuisine created by the chief chef, who honed his skills at a famous Japanese restaurant in Tokyo. The 24-Sekki course expresses the 24 divisions of the solar year through ingredients procured from around the country and the tableware. Dinners start at 6,000 JPY.
The popular lunch bowls have fish chosen by the owner, who is dedicated to offering fresh seafood, including tuna from the port of Misaki and shirasu whitebait from Hayama, both of which are in Kanagawa. There are more than 10 types of bowls, including set menus. When fishing bans are lifted, lightly boiled morning-caught kamaage shirasu whitebait are served.
This is a restaurant where you can enjoy food prepared by a skilled chef who trained in Kyoto. The lunch set (1,240 JPY and up) includes a choice from three to four grilled fish or dashimaki omelet and comes with three small obanzai side dishes.
