Bessou ornament

Bessou was conceived from a desire to share my family’s food traditions. My love of Japanese food comes from my mother, a passionate home cook who introduced me to the beauty and bounty of Japanese food. Meals were a way for her to teach me and my sister about our Japanese heritage. In summer we often enjoyed chilled inaniwa udon native to my mother’s hometown with all of the traditional accoutrements, and in winter we would gather in the kitchen, taking turns pounding rice into kiritanpo rice dumplings for her famous hotpot stew.

Our dishes are a modern take on everyday Japanese comfort food.  Our ingredients are responsibly sourced and prepared with care, with a menu that is seasonal and changing year round.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
