I was expecting some stylish and upscale Japanese washoku place, so I was a little taken back by the entrance which is impossible to spot and far from pretty. Inside is very basic and small, with only 10 counter seats. Forgot the exact price, but the cheapest lunch course I ordered was about 3000yen.
Ankimo chawanmushi. Absolutely delicious!! Has a hint of vinegar.

Anago steamed with rice.
Cod shirako osuimono(clear broth). The shirako is so creamy and rich~.

Lotus root manju. Very mochi-mochi.
Grilled hachiuo. Fatty and juicy fish.

Jako(little fish) rice. Miso soup is very good. Dessert is lotus root cake. Reminds me of chinese dim sum but very good.

The environment might not be up to much but the food is to die for. Good value for this kind of proper kaiseki-ish washoku too.

Japanese food is plain~. But because the cooking style is so simple, the ingredients have to be top-notch and fresh, the way of preparing impeccable, otherwise it will taste gross~.

my goodness the entrance is like...going to storage room or bathroom or something...^^:; Kaiseki is like a tasting menu. The dishes looks so tempting, thought I can't help thinking some of those kaiseki dishes are actually rather plain food if weren't put together as a set.
