[Tokyo] Ebiyama (海老山): Satisfying Shrimp Aficionados with Scrumptious Ebi Katsudon in Shibuya!


Ebiyama: Where Shrimp Becomes Artistry on Your Plate

Emerging in July 2022, Ebiyama stands out as an innovative gem located conveniently between Shibuya and Ebisu on Meiji Avenue. It offers an exceptional dining experience through its specialty dish, “ebi katsu-don,” which features perfectly fried shrimp atop rice. The unique aspect of Ebiyama lies not only in its delectable cuisine, but also in its artistic presentation. Each ebi katsu-don bowl showcases 7 to 8 plump shrimp arranged elegantly on the rice, creating a visual masterpiece that precedes the taste.

Beyond appearance, the shrimp’s texture is exquisite, with succulent tenderness extending from flesh to tail. Complemented by a tantalizingly crisp breading, it contrasts wonderfully with the rice below. The rice is infused with an original sweet and savory sauce, contributing to a flavorful symphony. Adding to this culinary experience is a semi-cooked omelette nestled between the shrimp and rice, creating a harmonious blend of taste and texture.


Ebiyama’s offerings extend beyond the main dish, as each ebi katsu-don includes a serving of miso soup, ensuring a well-rounded and satisfying meal. Portions are generously sized, reflecting Ebiyama’s commitment to providing an indulgent dining journey.

What sets Ebiyama apart is its interactive nature. Positioned at the countertop, diners witness the culinary magic firsthand. Skilled chefs fry the shrimp katsu, creating a symphony of sound and aroma that enhances the sensory experience and anticipation. Ebiyama is more than a restaurant; it’s a destination for shrimp enthusiasts, a hub of flavor innovation, and a stage for culinary expertise. Whether you’re a shrimp aficionado or seeking an unforgettable dining adventure, Ebiyama promises an excellence inspired by shrimp.
