Kohaku is a sister restaurant of Ishikawa and itself boasts two M stars. Most of the courses are excellent and impressive. The deep fried bamboo shoots was V good. The suppon rice ball was ingenious. I am quite accustomed to suppon and egg custard, but suppon on top of plan rice is also a perfect match. Next comes a trafitional fare, soup with dumpling. I don't care much for traditnal Japanese dumplings, be it fish or shrimps in soup. But the sow crab dumpling was a real delight. The freshness of the crab is complemented by the clear soup. In lieu of the usual sashimi, I had kinmedai in vinegared jelly, also a surprise and tastes refreshing. The real highlight was the sukiyaki beef with truffle and egg. Divine !!!! There were also the ankimo, yellow tail in white miso soup and crab porridge. All in all, am excellent meal. Personally, I prefer Kohaku to Ishikawa.
