Tokyo is one of the hottest global dining destinations you can visit, in no small reason because of the new wave of modern, Japanese-influenced restaurants taking the cuisine scene by storm. Pick up a copy of Tokyo New Wave and discover the chefs, restaurants and recipes popping up on everyone’s Instagram. This wagyu beef-wrapped sea-urchin is luxury swathed in luxury (and you’ll never forget your first bite). 

This is a summer dish. I wanted to make a cold dish using beef because summer in Japan is very hot and humid. During the summer months, it is important to have meat for protein and energy as people get tired easily.

Note: You can buy ground sesame seeds in Japanese markets or grind them yourself at home.
