|Maguro yamakake- fresh tuna sashimi served with grated mountain yam|
This was our first taste of how amazingly fresh the sashimi was, and we couldn't get enough of it! The grated mountain yam added a creamy dimension that complemented the tuna well.
|Chikuzen ni- assorted cooked roots vegetables and chicken|
After a day of road trip food (i.e. fast food + junk), I really enjoyed the healthiness of the dish. I regretted not ordering a few more healthy options!
|Kamo roast- slices of chilled roasted duck wrapped around scallion, accented with basil sauce|
|Jaga dango- mashed potatoes coated in sweet donut batter, fried crisp|
This was really bizarre- like a savoury donut with mashed potatoes. I wouldn't say that it was my favourite dish, but it was certainly very innovative and interesting.
|Tamakoyaki - sliced egg omelette with bonito broth, wrapped around grilled eel|
My only complaint was that there was barely any eel in the omelette!
|Bi stick- deep fried shrimp roll with seaweed and oba leaf, served with miso sauce|
|Karaage- deep fried chunks of chicken marinaded in sake and ginger infused soy sauce|
This was superbly juicy and delicious! No sauce required at all!
|Gindara yuan yaki- grilled fillets of cod fish steeped in sweet soy sauce|
This was pure buttery deliciousness in my mouth! The gindara was undoubtedly memorable and one of the best dish of the night.
|Sanma onigiri- cooked rice balls with shiitake mushroom, pickled radish and mountain vegetables, wrapped with a whole baked pike mackerel|
We ordered various rice balls because the guys needed something more filling. I didn't try too much of it.
|Onigiri- rice balls topped with spicy cod roe and salmon roe|
|We were pretty full but couldn't leave without having something sweet. The first dessert we tried was the black sesame crème brûlée. This was also fantastic and not overly sweet.|
