Fodor's Review

Since 1722, Mankamero's specialty has been yusoku ryori, cuisine intended for members of the Imperial Court. Every step of the meal is incredibly elaborate, down to the ceremonially dressed chef who prepares your dishes using specially made utensils. A dramatic if oddly named course is the "dismembered fish," in which each part of a single fish is prepared and served on pedestal trays. The prices reflect the aristocratic experience—from ¥10,000 to ¥30,000 per person for the full repertoire. A wonderful take-kago (bamboo box) lunch set for ¥6,325 contains a series of steamed surprises. Mankamero is on the west side of Inokuma-dori north of Demizu-dori. Look for the blue-tile roof.
