MITSUKOSHI GINZA 11TH FLOOR.
I ended up having lunch at this small dim sum (or yam-cha as the Japanese call it) restaurant on the 11th floor of Mitsukoshi Ginza during a quest to find a good, reasonable restaurant worth bringing guests to in the Ginza area.
They had two choices of lunch menus : The Brown Rice Porridge Set that cost 2300 yen and the modern dim sum set for 3200 yen.
I decided to try the brown rice porridge set while my friends tried the other. Here is what my lunch set looked like :
Three choices of steamed dim sum
Fried dim sum
Chinese medicine soup
Brown rice porridge
For the modern dim sum set, there were these two extra dishes : (the noodles were delicious)
Stir fried soft shell shrimp with sweet chili sauce
Szechuan sesame spicy noodles
I imagined the soup and porridge to be the perfect comfort food when feeling under the weather, but I have to admit that it is not the most spectacular dim sum I have ever tasted. Yet, it is still a nice choice if you happen to be in the Ginza area and are craving for a little yam-cha.
