Takumi-Tei, a new signature table-service restaurant located in Japan in the World Showcase at Epcot, is now open! The new restaurant is a unique place to have an upscale dining experience with a unique atmosphere.
Takumi-Tei is a dining experience providing a look into the Japanese culture from the moment you walk in to the moment you put down your chopsticks. The menu includes a prix fixe multi-course tasting menu and a chef’s table experience. The menu includes wagyu bee, sushi, sashimi, unique desserts, signature cocktails, premium sake and much more.
Appetizers include items like Teien featuring compressed watermelon and tuna sashimi, Nikomi Wagyu - abraised wagyu short rib with roasted bone marrow, or Hama no Kani featuring crab tossed in a light ponzu sauce along with toasted crab. For a vegetarian option, you can try the Agedashi Tofu with fried silken tofu, brown butter black rice and shimeji mushroom.
Entrées include unique dishes like Kamo Rosu and Takumi Gyuniku. The Kamo Rosu features roasted marinated duck with kabocha squash, edamame beans, Japanese mizuna, cured duck egg yolk, and a grape reduction.
