Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke

What to eat?

Take your pick from two variations of duck broth (rich and clear), spicy miso, tsukemen (dipping noodles) and mazesoba (dry ramen). Served with slices of premium Irish hybrid duck, customers have the choice to top each off with a marinated soft-centred egg or up-sized as a ‘Special’; which includes seaweed, an egg, two slices of duck and two yuzu duck meatballs.

Plans for a Japanese rooftop garden bar are underway so get ready to let loose with beer and sake real soon!

If you love PORTA’s award-winning Prawn & Chorizo Pasta; The Porta Burger; and Iberian Pork Secreto, then you’re sure to love the new signatures which include Braised Beef Short Rib, Wild Mushroom Orecchiette and Duck Ragout.

Start off with the Tsukune Ohba Tsutsumi Age (deep fried chicken ball with perilla leaf) and the Onsen Tamago Cocktail (a luxurious combo of onsen egg, foie gras, salmon roe and uni). Be sure to also enjoy the selection of hearty Donburi Sets, Teishoku Sets and Udon/Porridge Sets.
