Experience Details
Gyudon, or Japanese beef bowl, is a staple Japanese fast food dish, consisting of thin strips of tender sauteed beef and onions, served over rice, and usually accompanied by pickles. Super simple to make, gyudon is a hearty, filling, and comforting donburi with similar origins as sukiyaki, a type of nabe (hot pot) dish. In addition to learning how to make a seriously delicious Japanese beef bowl in this Gyudon and Miso Soup Cooking Class, you’ll learn the basics of Japanese cooking from two experienced chefs. Ichijiu-sansai (one soup, three dishes) refers to the traditional layout of a Japanese meal, which also includes rice and pickles in addition to the dishes and soup. Often, the soup is miso soup, a staple of most Japanese restaurant menus and households, made with dashi (fish, kelp, or mushroom soup stock) and miso paste. In this cooking class, you will gain the skills to make miso soup from scratch at home. The cooking instructors are twin sisters (Ayumi and Shihomi) who worked as sushi chefs in Geneva, Switzerland for three years and at Itamae in Tokyo for seven years. As female sushi chefs are very uncommon in Japan, this is an incredible accomplishment, and they have a wealth of knowledge to share about Japanese cuisine. Menu: -Gyudon (Japanese beef bowl) -Miso soup -Vegetable side dish -Japanese tea tasting of several types of tea -Japanese sweets

Experience Location
Meguro is surrounded by a cluster of restaurants and bars which trickle down through Meguro Dori Street, cherry blossoms line the canal along Meguro River, a popular spot for hanami season in spring. Follow the river to the west for trendy bars and hipster cafes of Nakameguro, where the ward stretches as far as Yutenji and Tokyo’s little Europe in Jiyugaoka. Meguro is home to 500 Buddha statues in Daienji Temple, as well as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, alongside the much more unusual Meguro Parasitological Museum.
