We started our meal with the delicious Amuse where we were served with the Sea Urchin Pudding with Consomme Jelly and the Crab Meat and Tomato Salad with Crab Miso Tofu. The appetising
taste of Sea Urchin Pudding with Consomme Jelly and the Crab Meat and Tomato Salad with Crab Miso Tofu which gave us with the melts in the mouth sensation. Perfectly done!
Filled our tummy with the freshly prepared Assorted Sushi. We had the Goose Liver Teriyaki, Seared Wagyu Beef and the Tuna Belly with Caviar.Everything was amazingly good especially the Seared Wagyu Beef where they are fragrant, and also gave you with the melts in the mouth sensation.
Highlights of the day of course the Sashimi. The fresh sashimi were laid beautifully on top of bed of ice. The sashimi came with complete freshness and every mouthful is just melted in our mouth.
The bowl of grilled prawns were awesome. The prawns were fresh with the light saltiness in it. Sides with the bisque sauce and loads of greenies together.
When the food arrived, it indeed captured my attention where Chef Oshima had put so much of detailed and effort in presenting the Assorted Hot Dish. Comes with five petite items which were the Smoked Trout Salad, Steamed Glutinous Rice Ball with Saikyo Miso, Grilled Aspargus Rolled with Beef and the Stuffed Shitake Mushrooms and Grilled Trout Belly.
We were impressed with the cut of the Japanese Style Wagyu Beef. The beef was perfectly grilled till perfection. The flavours were there and every mouthful was indeed heavenly and what’s made it even better is the cold sauce which was served to us.
d with Red Bean Miso Soup & Pickles
We had this awesome-licious bowl of hot rice – crab meat omelette rice. Sides with the unique soup which was the Red Bean Miso Soup and Pickles. It is such a comfort food to have and everything was super good.
We ended our meals with the awesomely prepared desserts. The Green Tea Ice Cream and Rice Flour Dumpling “Anmitsu” was so indulging. Not too sweet and just nice. Well paired with the Red Bean and Rice Flour Dumpling
