A wonderful lunch today at another restaurant that has spent some time on my hit-list. This Japanese restaurant on Charlotte St, home to a bewilderingly good array of restaurants, had a mouthwatering menu comprising the staples of sushi (which we had none of) and a huge variety of Japanese fried and grilled numbers, of which we had plenty.
A drink of Kirin to begin, then starters of seafood and vegetable tempura, scallops flambéed in whisky (incredible), spiced lamb cutlets (also incredible), snow crab & prawn dumplings & chicken dumplings and prawns in a light pastry with a creamy dip. Lovely stuff.
The mains, accompanied by white wine, consisted of dynamite beef from the specials board, a divine fillet of beef with foie gras and sea-urchin butter, wasabi lamb and and wasabi chicken. All of it lovely – this place is highly recommended.
Dessert was a chocolate fondant with green tea ice cream. We also finished with a ‘godfather’ – Jack Daniels & Amaretto over ice. Much, much more lethal than I expected.
