The dishes served, including fatty tuna sushi, smoked amberjack and sea urchin tongue, bewilder the tastebuds.
Takuya Watanabe hails from Niseko, on the northern island of Hokkaido. He opened four establishments there before making his debut on the international stage with Jin in Paris. Pour Pen, he shares the recipe for one of the dishes on his signature menu, a fatty tuna (toro) appetiser with creamy burrata and white Alba truffle.
