Classic Style Chunky Braised Pork Kakuni
~ Slow-braised pork belly that literally melts in the mouth.
Originally Ben ask me to order only 1 portion since not everyone would like to eat "fat pork".... but as soon as this arrive everyone wants a piece and we end up ordering an extra one =P
If you don't eat "fat pork", please skip this dish since it'll just be a waste. And guess what there was a guy among us who just threw the fat away and ate the meat part... that's a total waste and he should have skip this dish altogether and leave it for the rest of us who loved it (which is all 7 of us)
Ika Sugata Yaki
Amaebi Karaage ~ Fried sweet Shrimp.
There's a choice of sea salt and teriyaki sauce for all their skewers (kushi).I always thought for years that skewers like these are what they mainly served at Izakaya(居酒屋). I almost wish it was serve on one of those Japanese table top charcoal grill .
Angus Beef Kushiyaki w/ sea salt
This was OK, nothing great
Chicken Kushi w/ teriyaki sauce
~ good but nothing special
Pork Belly Kushi w/ sea salt
~ Yummmm, you'll be surprise how the sea salt brings out the pork & grilled flavour
Tuna Negima Skewer ~ Deep Fried Tuna & Japanese Leek
(for this one there's no choice, only terriyaki sauce)
This was one of my favorite skewer among the 4, it's one of my to-eat again dish which is a surprise since I don't usually like cook fish and would much prefer other meat... but this one was so good, full of flavour and a very smooth texture
Ground Wagyu Beef Steak ~ Juicy & flavorful ground wagyu beef w/ terriyaki sauce & cheese
How could this not be good, beef w/ cheese served on a sizzling plate
Ok, you could not really taste if it's regular beef or wagyu beef but for only $7 I'm not questioning given the meat was moist and the cheese go surprisingly well with the terriyaki sauce.
Asari Soy Butter ~clams cook in soy sauce & butter
This looks really plain and we start regretting ordering this was soon as we saw this... but it was really good, although I still prefer Sake Clams since you could taste the clam flavour better
Scallop Butter ~ nothing special
Angus Beef Stonegrill ~ tends to overcooking the meat (hate my beef being too cook)
Sesame Ice Cream ~ not that great
(miss Yuzu/Japango's sesame ice cream)
