"I believe that food is love," says Yosuke Otsuka, the owner of the namesake restaurant "Japanese Cuisine Otsuka Yosuke". Otsuka opened the restaurant in 2015 in Nishi-Azabu, and when he changed premises in 2016, he chose to stay in the same area because he values his regular customers.
Otsuka is originally from Fukuoka. While he is still just 32 years old, he has already earned considerable popularity among local restaurant-goers. Otsuka's biggest goal is to please his customers with cuisine made from fresh seasonal ingredients. He selects ingredients from his native Kyushu; Otsuka has vegetables shipped directly from Fukuoka every day, while for meat he orders Tarama beef raised in the Miyako-Jima region by a veteran farmer there, and for rice, Fukuoka grown Renge rice produced by a friend of his. Otsuka aims to please diners with simple, unflashy seasonal specialties like an unseasoned grilled eel in summer, longtooth grouper hotpot in winter, and rice seasoned and cooked with various ingredients that differ according to the season. Otsuka's cuisine is an expression of his mastery of technique and sincere desire to please his customers. For tableware, he mostly uses Karatsu ware made in Saga. The earthy colors and wonderful texture of the dishes bring out the flavor of the fresh ingredients of the food. "Japanese Cuisine Otsuka Yosuke" offers Japanese sake and a selection of wine, most of which are sourced from France. Their mild flavors pair wonderfully with the cuisine.
Japanese Cuisine Otsuka Yosuke has a private room which seats four and six counter seats. Its design makes ample use of warm wood interiors, which will relax your mind from the moment you step in the door. "Many of my customers recommend my restaurant to their friends, which helps support my business," says Otsuka, and it is certainly the kind of place you will want to introduce your friends to, with its friendly, fun atmosphere. Since Otsuka is fluent in English, oversea guests can also have a great time here. Otsuka's carefully-made Japanese cuisine inspires the kind of trust that normally takes years to build.
