The food menu. Sake was in another binder 3-4 pages long.
|Seaweed Sunomono- A vegetable & seaweed in bonito-vinegar broth|
|My fav was this Tako Wasabi dish (cured Octopus)|
|Sweet duck salad was wonderful. (Simmered duck, soft egg, baby greens, sweet duck dressing)|
|Grilled Saikyo- Black Cod and Kyoto miso marinade|
|Lamb Chop Tataki: Rock salt & coarse black pepper: ginger onion soy sauce|
|Grilled Miso Oysters: Meaty oysters grilled on the shell with red-miso sauce. Salty & sweet: meant to be enjoyed with sake|
The venue was super intimate and romantic..if it weren't for those loud drunken Korean girls, it would have been a nice night.We sat in our own little booth enclosed with a bamboo drape and a ringer we can buzz when we needed our waiter. See pics here on their website .
It's too bad we were not interested in sampling the vast sake menu they had that night so we stayed sober. We were there for the food and we ordered to our heart's desire although one dish that we were looking forward to was no longer being served which was the seafood gratin (oyster, uni sea urchin, shrimp, Japanese mushrooms:oven-grilled in béchamel sauce).
For dessert, we went to a Bodega and picked up a Three twins Madagascar vanilla ice cream to take home and eat. A perfect way to end the evening.
I would definitely recommend this place if you are a sake connoisseur and can sample their sake alongside the food since most dishes were a bit too salty and would taste delicious with all types of alcohol.
