Minako....worth the wait

gordon wing | Feb 16, 200302:08 AM     14

Had a very nice meal at Minako tonight. Four of us had two Shogun dinners and two Kaiseki dinners. The Shogun dinners are vegan and the Kaiseki dinners include seafood....both are $27 each and are a total bargain. It worked out very well to share the Shogun and Kaiseki dinners - more interesting than having one or the other exclusively. A nice variety of tastes and textures.... I lost track of how many courses there were - somewhere from 8-10? Near the end of the meal, the waitress - who happens to be the daughter of the chef - asked us how we were doing? whether we were getting full? we were at the end and told her so - the inference being that we could have gotten more but that wasn't necessary. A few of the courses were rather substantial - especially this large fritter like creation with potatoes and shrimp that was lightly battered and fried- crunchy on the outside, warm and soft inside with shrimp on the top. It's a small restaurant so there can be a wait but we thought it was worth the wait. Nice to see a family run restaurant doing so well.
