Prawn and carrot mousse rolled in zucchini, ricotta cheese quiche, asparagus and minced meat terrine. Potato soup.
My friend's choice: Sakura shrimp and karasumi(fish roe) cream spaghetti.
My choice: Ham and broccoli paccheri.
ババロアリゾーニ。Risoni bavarois.(Risoni is rice-shape pasta)
An absolutely perfect lunch experience!! Every dish is delicious, especially the pasta, which is so simple yet incredibly good, and served in a satisfying big porton too. Pasta lunch course including appetizer, soup, pasta, dessert and coffee, is only 1800yen even on a weekend. Considering those super expensive but no good Italian I have had recently, this place is heaven. Oh also, the waitor seems to have good ears. It was my friend's birthday but we kept it rather quiet, yet her dessert came with a candle and chocolate drawings on the plate. Then we were talking about some cappuccino cafe nearby which does very pretty drawings on the foam, and somehow the cappuccinos at the end of the lunch course were something we never expected of a restaurant...the birthday gal had "Happy Birthday" written in Japanese on her cappuccino...how lovely. Definitely want to go back again.
