From the 2100yen lunch course. Roasted pork.
２色のパスタ盛り合わせ： うにスパゲッティ と ポルチーニ茸ソースのリゾート。
Sea urchin spaghetti and Risotto with Porcini sauce. Gateau chocolate.
What happened is, I couldn’t stop thinking about that sea urchin pasta I had in La Bettola, but the restaurant is just too crowded, so as an alternative I went to the branch restaurant where the apprentice of Ochiai is the chef. I went at 1pm and I still had to wait til 2pm before there was any vacancy available….crazy. But the food was just as good as the original and the environment was actually better. There was no meat dishes in the menu though – maybe we were too late?
