last drop introspection

Located in Nishijin, last drop is a special place where you can refresh your mind and body with a fermented food lunch and Chinese tea.

July 07, 2023 open

This popular restaurant, where lunch using fermented seasonings can be enjoyed on the first floor and Taiwanese tea can be enjoyed on the second floor, has become a hot topic by word of mouth and is full of people making reservations every day. The restaurant is run by father and son, Mr. and Mrs. Nakayama. They started the restaurant in the place where their house used to be.

last drop's one soup and five vegetables

All dishes are made with fermented seasonings. 1,500 yen for one soup and five dishes. +400 yen to choose today's meat or fish (photo: meat), both of which vary in content from day to day.

In charge of lunch is her daughter, Aki, who used to work at a dining bar in Tokyo. Her healthy meals made with homemade fermented foods are well received. When I became pregnant, I started to pay more attention to food, and I discovered fermented foods and started to make them myself. I use homemade seasonings in all of my dishes.
A wide variety of fermented foods can be enjoyed at one time, including homemade miso, shio koji, ama koji, and rice that is left to ferment. Many repeat customers say, "Eating here gives me energy.

last drop 2F tea salon

At the tea salon on the second floor, mother Sumie teaches the charm of Taiwanese tea in an authentic setting. You can drink five to six cups of Taiwanese tea. I want people to actually feel the taste and aroma that changes with each sip. The tea leaves a lingering aftertaste with every sip, which is truly impressive. I would be happy if as many people as possible could experience both the food and the Taiwanese tea, and I would be happy to see their happy faces.

Alishan tea at last drop

Alishan tea 1,800 yen. Alishan tea, a representative of Taiwanese tea, has a gorgeous aroma that fills the mouth. Tea cakes are included.
