Be warned and delighted –Edamame is not your typical Japanese eatery, and as such offers much more than the regular variety of a sushi conveyer. At this cheap and cheerful restaurant, chef Archv Taamari is very much in tune with what the customer wants. With each seasonal menu change he brings in elements suggested by both clientele and peers alike. Archv is inspired by French cooking methods too, and will be launching a new menu in December featuring an oyster puree, among other dishes, designed to showcase his fusion techniques and French inspiration. The fusion of traditional cooking techniques and modern ideals for creating innovative meals is key to the success of this little restaurant. Detailed descriptions of the history of fundamental traditional ingredients can be found scattered about on walls and menus, too, giving added charm to the cluttered little space.
