Wanted to share this with other CH's This was a set menu arranged by someone who knew the chef so all we had to do was show up and enjoy the meal.
Two set of apps edamame and sweet potato chips
Hand role. The paper it came in was edible as well. Shrimp with tempura flakes with avocado and mango. Was OK IMO as more of the tech display and conversation piece than anything else as far as the paper is concerned. Might go well as bar food.
Trio of fish. There was truffle used in this course a poor choice if you intend to enjoy delicate raw fish as it overpowers everything. While I have nothing against people who enjoy truffles I think its abhorrent to use it in a dish for the sake of using it.
Next was sushi sashimi platter. Decent sashimi but again the use of truffle just overpowered the sushi rolls.
Chopped fish on crispy chicken skin. While I appreciate the attempt to innovate I think cold chicken skin is not my cup of tea. Again will do well as bar food. Innovative yet I somehow don't see it working as warm chicken skin won't go well against raw fish without effecting it.
Corn soup with king crab meat. Surprised me as it was quite good and refined.
Soba. Very poor as I couldn't even finish my portion
Bone in Rib eye. Accompanied by peppers and tempura mushrooms. Decent and a nice filler
Candied pineapple with Sake ice cream caramel and almonds. Very good and sure to please a crowd. Surprisingly refined dessert.
The price we paid was very reasonable IMO and might be something to look into for a office party or people who just want to drink a bit and fill up.
