5250yen dinner course. They only have one prefix course, plus some a la carte menu.
Appetizer: Prawn, abalone, ginger, cream cheese with ika no shiokara, bream and aubergine roll.
Suppon turtle chawanmushi. This is so good!
Maguro, karei, squid sashimi. Very fresh.
Uni is not included in the dinner course. Side order is 1500yen.
Grilled Tachiuo and summer vegetables. The fish is smooth and juicy.
Fried suzuki(sea bass) and aubergine, with ume(sour plum) ankake sauce. Miso soup has fish in it, which makes it sweet.
Dessert is panna cotta and almond pudding. Almond pudding is better.
All the food are delicious. I have come here about 3 years ago(see tag) and really loved the experience, so I am glad that quality and value haven’t dropped. I sat in the private room last time while I had the counter seat this time. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, there is a waiter who can speak a little English and is willing to explain the menu to foreigners.

wow, this looks really good. gonna have to make a note to myself to try it out next time i’m in tokyo! 🙂
Hey scenic. Yeah let’s go to this restaurant next time! It is only for dinner though~
Turtle…? how does it taste like (the egg color is so tan). Everything looks so good!!!
There was only a little bit of turtle meat in it. A bit jelly-ish, soft but chewy. I think people use it for soup but not really eat the meat?(not sure…)
I was gonna say “gwai ling go” then remember there’s no turtle in it ^^;; Chinese use turtle for soup too~ (water fish soup)
Seems like suppon = Chinese softshell turtle = “water fish” ^^;;;
