Opened in November 2023 as a new spot in Tokyo, Azabudai Hills is home to various shops and restaurants, especially within the "Garden Plaza" and "Tower Plaza", where there are many dining options. This time, we conducted an interview at the editorial department and carefully selected and introduce eight recommended restaurants and eateries.

What is Azabudai Hills?

Azabudai Hills was redeveloped with the concept of a "Modern Urban Village - a town like a plaza that connects people and is surrounded by greenery," aiming to create a town where people can live healthily and abundantly in harmony with nature. It is a compact city that brings together a variety of commercial facilities such as the "Garden Plaza" and "Tower Plaza" for shopping and gourmet, the "Central Plaza" rich in greenery such as vegetable gardens and orchards, the "Residence" where houses and hotels are gathered, the office facility "Mori JP Tower", and the international school "British School in Tokyo".

【Sushi】Terakoya Sushisho

"Terakoya Sushisho" is a sushi restaurant opened by a sushi chef who gained experience at the famous sushi restaurant "Sushisho", which has won the "The Tabelog Award Silver" for six consecutive years from 2018 on a famous gourmet review site in Japan. The small restaurant with 12 seats is divided into counter seats where the chef makes sushi right in front of you and waiting bar seats where alcohol such as sake and wine is served. It's a high-end sushi restaurant with a hidden-away atmosphere, where you can enjoy an omakase course for about 40,000 yen.

The most recommended dish on the menu is the "Anglerfish Liver Pickled in Watermelon" (pictured right). Anglerfish liver is known as a high-end ingredient, and there aren't many places in Tokyo that serve it. The taste is free of any fishy smell, with a very creamy texture and a refreshing flavor. The watermelon pickles are not too salty, and the balance of flavors is exquisite. We were very impressed by this taste that we had never experienced before. Highly recommend for sushi lovers.

Its original pizzas, made with ingredients from producers around the world, and the homemade fresh cheese made in its in-store workshop, are the signature dishes. The texture and aroma of the pizza baked in the kiln are exceptional, and it was so delicious that we had never tasted anything like it before. The homemade cheese has a rich and refined taste. The toppings on top are juicy with the sauce, and because the dough is thin like pizza, you can eat as many slices as you want without getting tired of it.
