Look at the super cute display of their special dishes...
MAGURO no TATAKI
~ slightly seared Tuna w/ chili paste on top
Love the vinaigrette w/ the cold tuna together with the tiny bit of heat from the orange chili paste
Monk Fish Liver
~ had no idea what this when ordering, but don't know why as soon as I saw it on the menu, I need to order this (>_<)
It was very rich and creamy, yet at the same time very light and delicate... very silky/velvety to the palette.
~ I think this was suppose to be for another table, they just serve it wrong to us and by the time they realize that we already dig in not knowing (we thought it was complementary) =P
I think this should come we the Omakaze (Jap. style Tasting menu)
Featured Sashimi Platter
~ Uni, amaebi, scallops, tuna, salmon, hamachi, saba, tai, crab leg
Fresh, big portion, yummy...
could have serve 3-4 people instead of just the 2 of us but we still manage to finish everything =P
And we order the platter as a combo with a bottle of sake and they do have quite a good selection of sake at very reasonable price.
Extra order of my fave Amaebi (sweet shrimp) Sashimi
Kani Miso Sushi & Uni Sushi
Kani Mani is a mixture of 蟹膏 (crab's internals) with miso. This is my first time having this and it definitely taste a lot better than it looks. And I do love my crab'd/lobster's/shrimp's 膏.
Super Yummy w/ intense crab taste. ♥ it !!!
~ octopus and seaweed marinated in vinegar served cold
I've always love this dish which it's super refreshing and a perfect palette cleanser.
Some places will have the octopus chopped into smaller size, love how it's a bigger slice here which result in a lighter taste/ not as marinated (not so sour/vinegar) and you could actually taste the octopus original taste and texture
~ good but nothing special (Yuzu/Japango still serves the best)
Love the red edible flower petal on top, very great contrast to the black (^_^)
~ very very good Mango ice-cream, not too sweet with a bit of the tangy taste from the mango.. although the mochi skin was nothing special and would have prefer to have it whole instead of halves since the 2 halves stick together and you have to wrestle with it for a while =P
I will just order the mango ice-cream next time.
It's uptown and close to home !!!!
Great and Friendly Service !!!
