Édition Koji Shimomura (エディション・コウジ シモムラ)


From 6300yen lunch.
Boudin Noir(pork blood sausage) petit hamburger.
Foie gras terrine and fruits.
Shungiku and squid ink sauce.
Roasted lamb chop.
A little performance of mixing lemon vinegar with herb and changing the colour from purple to pink.
Chocolate Ganche. Cocoa mixed mineral water.
Birthday cake pre-ordered for a friend. It is white chocolate mousse with raspberry. Fresh herb tea. Petit fours. Soybean and endive root pudding. Pastry crisp with pumpkin seed and pumpkin paste.

See tag for my first visit to this place. The friend who arranged this lunch party is a big fan of this restaurant, so he always picks this place whenever we gather for someone’s birthday. I like the birthday cake and the main dish more this time, but the appetizers are not as good as last time.

Édition Koji Shimomura (エディション・コウジ シモムラ)

パルメジャーノのスティックパイ。 自家製プチハンバーガー。
From the 6300yen lunch.
Parmesan stick pie. Petit hamburger with ham and basil.
宮城産の岩牡蛎 牡蛎のクリームと海水と柑橘のジュレ添え。
Miyazaki Iwakaki(oyster), with seaweed, oyster cream(at the bottom) and citrus jelly. The oyster is only cooked in seawater for 10 seconds apparently. Very refreshing.
Chef specialty: matodai fritter. Kadaif is used for the coating. Very light and crispy. There are broccoli cream and lemon jam at the bottom. Apparently the idea of having lemon jam under the fritter comes from the usual practice of squeezing lemon on fried things. Absolutely delicious.
Carrot and apple sorbet.
Pan-fried duck. The consensus of our table(all Japanese except me) is that this dish is more Chinese than French because of the seasoning and the sauce. Even the melon underneath tastes Chinese. Everyone craved rice!
Peach compote. Peach sauce was poured in front of us. Very sweet fresh peaches with a touch of cinnamon and other spices. The bowl used is interesting too.
豆乳とアンディーブ根っこを使ったプリン。 ピーナッツペーストと生の落花生を添えて。
Red currant sorbet and Amaretto ice-cream at the bottom.
Soybean and endive root pudding. Pastry crispy with peanut and peanut paste.

It was our friend’s birthday and we had the chef make him a birthday cake(here and here). It is chocolate mousse cake with passionfruit mousse and frozen raspberries inside. The cocoa sorbet on the side is also very nice.

The restaurant has only just opened recently. The chef was working in another restaurant which I have been before(entry here). I remember everything was impressive except the main dish, which can be said for the current visit too. Though to be fair, the meat dishes are certainly not bad. The chef is so friendly…and very funny! He kept bringing things to our table to show us…like rare water glasses, silver object in the shape of a bunch of grapes from Italy etc.
