Japanski restoran Takenoko
L'avis de Gault&Millau
The Japanese restaurant Takenoko is located at the intersection of two central streets in Zagreb. If the thick curtains are not drawn, behind the large glass walls you can see the modern interior of the restaurant. Unfortunately, Takenoko has no outdoor space so it remained closed for months due to the lockdown. However, they were among the first to introduce delivery, so food could be picked up on their doorstep. We tasted their specialties by ordering them for take away. We took the classic Sake Nigiri, raw salmon sushi and Maguro Nigiri, tuna sushi. They were good as always, fresh, with quality raw fish and rice that was neither too cold nor glued in a mass, as it is often the case in fast food sushi bars. We then ordered scampi (Ebi) tempura and a Yasai tempura with sticks and pieces of vegetables. The large cleaned scampi tails and the vegetables (carrots, zucchini, eggplant) were covered by a light crust of rice flour. Unfortunately, there was a big difference between the tempura served in the restaurant and the one intended for take away. As much as the quality of the produce was the same, the closing in the package and the delivery time did their thing. The tempura lost its crunchiness and the dough was moist, although the flavour was fine. This was a proof that many dishes are not suitable for delivery and that the choice of those that will retain their characteristics is limited, and this is true for all the restaurants. That’s why we all wish to go back to the normality when warm, fresh food from the restaurant kitchen arrives straight at our table.
