Last night we went to a O Chame at 4th street in Berkeley. I would say it was better than our last visit a few years ago. We ate:
Roasted scallops with wakame- really delicious. Big meaty pieces of fresh scallops. The sweetness of the wakame perfectly accentuated the flavor of the scallops. Very satisfying dish.
We shared two Soba noodle dishes, one with roasted oysters and one with smoked trout. Both were tasty but we liked the smoked trout version better.
Braised pork ribs with lemon and ginger. They were not really ribs. But this dish was so delicious. It was the kind of unique combination of flavors I experienced visiting Kyoto but never experience in Japanese restaurants in the states. The dish was non heavy and the flavor was delicious and satisfying.
