Ordinary bread, flat texture.
Excellent deep fried soft shell crab with a hearty crispiness, sweet flesh, and just right level of moist (no gushiness). Piqued by a mildly spicy sauce, complemented by beautifully diced tomatoes and a red leafed herb.
Seared tuna was decent, perhaps a little more cooked than I would have prefered, but nothing damning; still tender and moist. A dish with too many moving parts -- no sensation of the sake and miso marinate, likely overwhelmed by the black bean sauce. Nice well oiled greens, and a bed of fried rice that could use a lot of cues from any Chinatown place.
Root beer ice cream in a root beer float pushes the right childish pleasure buttons. The root beer creme brulee's only OK, great thick caramelized sugar crust, but the root beer flavour is thin. Rich creme left an oily finish.
Together with a pleasant glass of sake, $58, not including tip.
A fair value for a pretty good meal, but without exhilarating moments.
