“True flavor is found in unseasoned food. “Chinese writer Hong said in his book Vegetable Roots. However, this concept seems to be more practiced in Japanese cuisine. The head restaurant Den in Tokyo is inspired by “ryotie”, a traditional Japanese style restaurant. Instead of being restricted by traditions, Den connects itself to the world with innovation and a sense of humor. Taiwan-based branch Sho carries on the elements. The yakisugi ban at the main entry may seem rough, but on the second look you’ll find that it connects with metal hardware beautifully, carving out a Japanese-garden-like entry in a modern architecture. The slate on floor in intended to remind people of the Oya slates used in Den. Going through the path and then upstairs, thin lattices on the side blur the line between light and shadow. The route from entry to the entrance is an “indoor teien” experience, which represents the faint ambience in a Japanese garden.
Walking into the room, however, brightness and openness play strong contrast and tell a different narrative. At the ryotei a set of cypress counter lies, separating the space into dining area and working area.
