So, this time we ordered a course dinner (10000 yen) consisting of 9 dishes. Here is all we had!

1. Broccoli mousse

Made of layers of broccoli mousse, crab meat, fresh broccoli, sea urchin, and caviar. It didn't just look beautiful, but also tastes amazing. Rich flavors of each ingredient spread our mouth.

2. Seasonal fish and dashi stock

A summer seasonal fish called "Ainame (鮎魚女)" was served in a dashi (Japanese cooking stock made from seaweed). Matsutake mushrooms and some vegetables were topped on it. They created the elegant flavor.

Finger lime, or also known as caviar lime, was served on the side. The refreshing flavor added a kick to the dish.

3. Smoked bonito

Then they served a plate of three kinds of sliced fish including the smoked bonito.

All the fish were aged for a few days to enhance the taste and texture.

4. Grilled fish and veggies

The plate had a grilled eel, eggplant, edamame, and sanma fish (saury). The fish were nice and fluffy. Miso dipping sauce especially went well with the eel and eggplant.

5. Abalone croquette with truffle

6. A plate of 7 kinds of appetizer

This beautiful plate consisted of 7 kinds of appetizers which went well with sake. I liked the foie gras pickled in soy sauce (the bottom one). It was very rich and nicely salty.

They had a nice selection of sake, so we asked their recommendations. All sake tasted totally different and went well with the dishes.

7. Grilled pork

Then, surprisingly they shredded truffle on our bowl! It was the most luxurious rice bowl I had ever had.

After enjoying the chicken rice with the elegant taste of truffle, we put a soup made from chicken broth. It is a Japanese comfort dish called "ochazuke".

9. Dumpling with mango and plum

Retina retina retina
The dessert plate was first covered with a big leaf topped with soda and a kind of plant called junsai, or water shield.

Carefully poured the liquid into the plate of a white dumpling called shiratama, mango, plum, and black currant jelly. The dumpling was soft and fluffy. It was not too sweet and refreshing dessert.

That's all! Such a fun and delicious dinner it was!
