Modern Catalan Spanish BIKINI 赤坂

Modernist Tokyo Tapas
Spanish cuisine, particularly tapas, is very popular in Tokyo, perhaps because of its similarities to Japanese culinary culture—a focus on fresh ingredients, simple but elegant presentation, and small portion sizes that allow diners to sample many different flavors and textures in one sitting.

An innovative modernist take on this traditional style of eating can be found at Bikini, a small chain of Catalan-style pintxos purveyors with outlets in Shibuya, Akasaka, and Nihonbashi. Most of the standard bearers of Spanish cuisine such as patatas bravas, paella, and gambas al ajillo are on offer, all presented with a subtle (and beautiful) Japanese touch. The 4000 yen tasting course (a portion of which is pictured here) is especially recommended.
