Providing Chef Ikegami's authentic Chinese food to more people, at a more reasonable price.

Chef Taihei Ikegami

Studied under Yoji Wakiya, a leading figure in nouvelle chinois (Chinese cuisine with French influence) from the Wakiya Ichiemi Charou restaurant in Akasaka. He then founded Chinese Dining Ikegame in 2009, and continued working there up to the present day.

We use a lot of seasonal Japanese ingredients, like lily bulbs, ginkgo, and matsutake, that you won't usually find in Chinese cuisine. We use high quality vegetables that would still be delicious just fried in salt, and our cooking brings out the best of these ingredients.

What is nouvelle chinois?

It refers to a style of Chinese cooking where Western ingredients are cooked using Chinese methods, the food is put onto Western dishes and brought out one course at a time. Inspired by the new French style "nouvelle cuisine," it started in Hong Kong in 1980.

It became popular in Japan in the 1990s, and is favored by health-conscious people for the way it brings out the ingredients' natural flavours.
