    Chef Koicho Kondo, the culinary visionary behind Hatsu Hana Tei, creates the culinary marvels at this Japanese restaurant. Among his exceptional creations are charcoal-grilled meat dishes glazed with miso, elevating the meat’s tenderness and imparting a delectable sweet and savory essence through a perfect balance of flavors.
