Food Review : Edo at ITC Gardenia

Hi Friends,

Shalini is a Big fan of Japanese cuisine, this week we went to try out Japanese Restro Bar


located at

ITC Gardenia 

EDO, is inspired by the ancient name of the city of Tokyo. EDO showcases the Izakaya style of dining, which originated during the EDO period. Izakayas are popular after­ hour’s destinations for gathering over drinks and great food. It was during the EDO period that Japan first saw an exuberant popularization of art, music, theatre and literature in joyous pursuit of an ideal world of jubilation.

EDO brings alive the concept of Japan’s vibrant after-hours culture, with authentic sushi, sashimi, succulent robatayaki, crisp tempura and artful bento meals, accompanied by fine Japanese sake,  wines and whiskies, culminating in a  grand finale of delectable desserts.

Designed by the well-known Japanese firm of restaurant designers, Super Potato, the design concept of EDO is that of a modern stone garden. It is structured around three main areas - the Robata Counter-a first in the country, a Sushi Counter with a stone waterfall in the background and semi-private dining spaces. EDO also boasts of a  Sake Cellar to add to the vibrant space.

Join us in our Foodography journey through EDO

Our evening started with their Signature cocktail
Sake Bomb
Exploded over with Japanese Beer and Sake
It was perfect way to start the evening, it was really refreshing

They have a ritual : they serve you sake in a way that beer is in the glass a the bottom and sake is in a container balanced on chopsticks. After serving you have to say

Ichi - Ni - Sanya - Sake Bomb

and hit the table, sake container drops into beer and Voila your drink is ready, pretty exciting huh!!

ITC Gardenia gets their fresh catch every alternate day to make sure that the taste of Sushi and Sashimi is perfect, that freshness shows in their servings and I enjoyed every bit of it.

When chef asked that you want to try the Fresh Wasabi, we were all in for it. They served us fresh crushed wasabi on table, it cant get fresh than this. Apparently the fresh wasabi was more strong and being organic, it opened up the overall flavours of dish.

Wasabi was being crushed by tool called Oroshigane, made of Shark skin and Wood, abrasive surface of shark skin is ideal for breaking down the dense texture of wasabi root, allowing wasabi to release its full flavor potential.
