In the hustle of the city,
this Catalan chef displays his incredible culinary skills
with Spanish cuisine,
and partners it with an abundance of Spanish wine.
Most people don't know that real Spanish cuisine awaits them just steps away from Ebisu Station, at Fonda Sant Jordi.
Hidden away on the second floor, the cosy, comfortable atmosphere makes every guest feel right at home.
Every dish is made in the traditional way, and with your first bite, you will fall in love with real Spanish cuisine.
Owner and chef Jordi Oliver Turne polished his craft at Michelin-starred Restaurant Sant Pau's Tokyo location, and at the popular Spanish bar Tio Danjo.
He offers not only traditional Catalan cuisine, but also his own creations, giving guests a glimpse at the future of Spanish cuisine.
The San Jordi in the restaurant's name is a reference to the patron saint of Turne's homeland of Catalonia. Catalonia is known not only for its abundance of delicious local foods, but it is also famous for its wine.
Turne is proud of his rich selection of wine - gathered from all over Spain, not just Catalonia - and once partnered with his cuisine, guests can truly eat and drink to their heart's content.
When ordering the popular paella, diners can choose either rice or pasta as the base. Japanese diners are not usually familiar with paella made with pasta, but it is apparently an extremely popular local dish in Catalonia and Valencia.
The menu is replete with the greatest of Spanish cuisine, including jamón ibérico de bellota.
With a Spanish chef creating truly Spanish cuisine and partnering it with the best Spanish wines, a visit to Fonta San Jordi is just like a visit to Spain itself.
