Food Chronicles

Japanese Perfection with International Cuisine

When I think of “Japanese”, I associate the words: food, high quality, and perfection. When the Japanese cook certain international cuisines, like French and Italian, that have been long-established in the country, they imprint their Japanese perfection.

 

Pizza in Tokyo

Pizzas are a long-standing craze in Japan, from the American styles to the authentic Italian pizzas. In Tokyo there are countless Italian restaurants and Japanese-Italian restaurants with amazing pizzas made from high-quality ingredients.

Pizza is delicious in the entire country. In Osaka, you can find high quality pizzas at Echi Ponte Vecchio in the Lucua department store in the Osaka Station. The restaurant proudly shows off its Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana certification.

Margherita pizza at Echi Ponte Vecchio. The true test of a pizza is in the Margherita pizza. The balance of cheese, the low acidity of the tomato sauce, the cooking of the dough, and the bite of the crust

The restaurant also offers seasonal ingredients on the pizzas. In many cases, the vegetables are the star of the seasonal pizzas, such as corn, white asparagus, and so on. Some pizzas are also locally flavored for the Japanese clientele
