Spain meets Sichuan in Tokyo’s central business district, where chef Hirofumi Saito opened Textura earlier this year. After raking in a Michelin star with Ichirin, a Chinese mainstay in Tsukiji with a sister restaurant in the seaside city of Kamakura, chef Saito now extends his repertoire to Spanish fare. Served as a tasting set or à la carte courses, Textura’s menu ping-pongs lithely between complementing Chinese and Spanish flavors, but never fuses them both into a single dish. whaves.co.jp; High Casual dishes from ¥1,700, High End dinner from ¥8,000 per person.
