Taira-gai(Fan shell) and seasonal vegetables.
Sashimi from fish caught in the morning.
Yurine(lily root) wrapped in senbei, with spinach.
Saikyo-miso cured sawara(Spanish mackerel).
From the 5250yen lunch course. The cheaper 3645yen course doesn’t include “Yurine wrapped in senbei”, but the rest is the same. Everything is delicious and you can really tell the high-quality of each ingredient. At first I was pleasantly surprised by the large portion(for a high-class washoku place), but unfortunately the Taira-gai appetizer was the only item that was in generous portion – the sashimi was tiny(though very fresh), the rice didn’t fill half of the bowl and not refillable(though absolutely delicious), and the size of the dessert made my friend laugh…..I didn’t drink but my friend did and all the Nihonshu options on the menu were quite expensive. Good food but not the best bargain in town. I guess the posh location contributes to the price too – the restaurant is somewhere between Omotesando station and Gaienmae station. We booked a few weeks in advance so we got the private room to ourselves, which is very nice. Try to avoid the table seats cos they don’t look so comfortable.
