Aux Delices de Hongo (オ・デリス・ド・本郷)

Have come here before(see tag). This time is also arranged by the same friend who loves this place so much that I think he wants to live upstairs of the kitchen(^^;;).
Cold green pea soup, ham gougere. The 3 drops on top are mint oil.
The highlight of today’s menu – tomato prepared in 4 different ways(confit, sorbet, jelly and simple small cut), with mascarpone cheese at the bottom and zuwai crab. This is absolutely delicious!! Each spoon is a whole different experience from the last when you try different combination! No wonder my friend had it 3 times!!

Pan-fried Alfonsino, in basil sauce. Top with sakura shrimp and zucchini blossoms fritter, bottom with ratatouille. The wonderful smell and the multi-flavours kept my senses so busy that I was unable to talk – actually conversation was dead for a few times during the meal because everyone was too concentrated on eating. ^^;;
Grilled chicken, paprika sauce. The natural sweetness of the sauce comes from vegetables, and the side vegetables are quite unique.

The pudding, my god, is a mind-blowing treat! Rich and smooth and creamy egg pudding, sided with liquer-flavoured whipped-cream, and fruits like lychee, cherry, pineapple, orange…
The champagne , the white and the red were all good that I was so dead-happy full and drunk that I collapsed to bed once I hit home and was unconscious for 14 hours straight…^^;;
