  • Karaage


    Japanese fried chicken, karaage is made by marinating bite-size pieces of chicken in sake, soy sauce, ginger and garlic before coating them generously with potato starch. When fried, the starch turns into an ultra crispy shell encasing a flavorful juicy bite of chicken. Absolutely great with beer.

  • Miso Soup

    Miso Soup

    Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup. It's base is "dashi" (Japanese fish stock) and Miso paste. Common added ingredients are Tofu, Green onion and deep‐fried tofu but differs by personal preference. The type of miso is different from region. In western and Easter Japan white miso is mostly used.

About Host



Hello! I’m a Chef based in Bunkyo ward in Tokyo with Spanish and Japanese origins. 6 years ago left my life in Spain to follow my passion, Japanese food. I studied at Hattori Cooking School in Tokyo and had been working in high end restaurants such as NOBU for 4 years. During that time couldn’t forget my childhood memories about Japanese homemade food and started to make food for Cookpad, a famous Japanese recipe website, where I met my partners Naoko and Yukari, Japanese professional chefs.

Together we founded COCINA 210 because after inviting people to eat in our house everybody asked us about our recipes and how to make the dishes we served. Why not to share to the world the goodness of Japanese homemade food? Our multicultural background allows us to be curious as a foreigner and go in depth like locals.
