Sublimate Japanese seasonal ingredients to healthy and gentle Chinese cuisine

A Chinese restaurant "ENGINE", nestling in the corner of Kagurazaka. It is a restaurant with technology and innovation, to produce Chinese cuisine from Japanese ingredients. The name "ENGINE" in Japanese means "Ape Man", which is the process of evolution of mankind, with the meaning of "treasure the relation between people, and evolve even further".

In February 2015, as a restaurant using Japanese ingredients, we chose Kagurazaka as a attractive place to started our independent restaurant. Our Chef, Mr. Kazumasa Matsushita, has trained in several very famous Chinese restaurants. Mr. Kazumasa served as Chef for seven years, from the launch of Akasaka "Uzumaki", after served in " Tentsuusaikan", "A-jun", and "Niban".

You could make a reservation with Pocket Concierge, for example 【Pocket Concierge Limited Course】, to enjoy 7~8 dishes course made from carefully selected seasonal ingredients. Here we do not use any chemical seasoning, to create you a healthy and gentle taste. For example, "Pitan Yuba" which combined Preserved Egg with Okayama-shi Miso and Yamanashi's exquisite pumpkin yuba, is a classic dish offering to every customer for the first time. "Sweet and sour pork", which inherited from "Uzumaki", is also an excellent dish. Soft cooked meat with quality eating response, with grain vinegar and black vinegar, giving you the highest-level experience with roasted Ibaraki Prefecture's "Ishigami Pork". We also suggest you to enjoy them together with our recommended wine and Shaoxing wine.

The interior is in casual style, with both counter and a table seats available. A good suggestion for dating, or having dinner with your close friends.

    ひとつひとつの商品が本当に丁寧に創られていて感動しました。 勿論中華なのですが、シェフの想う「新しさ」を感じるお料理提案でした。 特にアワビ料理はソースも含め本当に言葉にならないほどです。 マリアージュも愉しめ、スペシャリティの黒酢酢豚に季節の牡蠣を合わせて頂いたりと 本当に一品一品想いが伝わるお料理でした。 また次回も予約させていただきます。 ご馳走さまでした。
