Lamb lovers rejoice!
Situated next to the center of Harajuku lies Bistro Prime Lamb, Japan’s first dedicated lamb bistro. Sourcing only the best quality ingredients, Bistro Prime Lamb uses quite a lot of cuts and inspired cooking methods to supply a various number of lamb dishes to its customers.
Heading into the restaurant, you’re immediately greeted by smiles and, as you’re guided to your table, you’re greeted once more by a dynamic range of irresistible aromas. The menu features each a la carte and the really helpful 10-course meal options.
The course begins with a big number of appetizers and first up is the lamb rare steak. Paired with a creamy and wealthy filet tartare this bite-size dish sets a mouth-watering tone for the next 9 courses which don’t disappoint. The long-boiled lamb bone soup is full of flavor, each spoonful subtly priming your mouth for what’s to return.
Next up is a set of 4 gorgeously plated appetizers, lamb carpaccio, slow-cooked lamb heart, spicy lamb quesadilla and lamb short ribs jerky. The set gives you a terrific number of different cuts of lamb and every item perfectly encompasses the distinct merits of every particular cut. While each dish is exclusive in taste and texture, our personal favorite was the lamb quesadilla.
The Lamb Tongue Salad is served with the restaurant’s specialty dish, the lamb liver, sweetbread pie. The pie’s daring flavor and texture are reason enough to run to this restaurant with its crunchy surface offering a deliciously flaky counterpoint to its tender, juicy lamb filling.
Next, the cold, refreshing, tomato smoothie acts as a moreish palette cleanser followed by a soft and pillowy homemade focaccia with a creamy sheep’s milk whipped cream which sets the stage for the primary courses.
Finally, the primary dishes, two masterfully cooked juicy lamb chops are paired with some locally-sourced vegetables from Shibakai Farm and a tasty spaghetti topped with dry-aged lamb shoulder shavings and fresh vegetables.
As Japan’s first lamb bistro, Bistro Prime Lamb sets the bar high for all future competitors. With its exquisite aroma, flavors and repair, Bistro Prime Lamb is a must-go for all food lovers.
