I was craving for sashimi as well as sushi, and i knew just where to get it
It was a rainy Friday and we were told the on coming storm had decided to spare us so hubby and I decided to celebrate by trying out the new restaurant next to his building
It has been a long time since i’ve opened this page, too long perhaps.
Thank you to the readers of Our Daily Blog and my on line buddies for putting up with my absence. We’re back, and im happy to have a smile on my face as i restart our Weekend Food Choices.
Last weekend was a stressful one for me and my friends as we were embarking on our last step to gain that additional four letters in our title. Nerve wracked and exhausted, i came home to a happy surprise from hubby. He said, “i know you’ve been so stressed so ive taken cared of your first weekend food choices after your challenge, would you like a Japanese, Italian, or Mexican cuisine?”.
My jaw almost dropped to the floor…
it was raining cats and dogs on a sunday and i could not think of anything better than a hot delicious soup to chase away the blues on such a gloomy day so we headed to kuretake
the taller than usual hot tea glass gave a warm welcome to one of my favorite japanese restaurant
we ordered the sukiyaki teishoku to satisfy my warm soupy craving
i just love this dish! the sweet broth, the tender beef, the soft butter like tofu and my favorite mushroom! yuuum!
i also love the fact that they let the diners mix the egg into the soup themselves
because as we all know i like egg dishes a little undercooked so plopping it in just as its about to be eaten is the way to go
the teishoku comes with a bowl of japanese rice, tiny bowls of japanese spices and mushrooms, a plate of sashimi
and chawan mushi
which just happens to be one of my favorite appetizer
the slices of sashimi included in the teishoku was not enough for us so we ordered another plate of assorted sashimi which had a couple of pieces of baby octopus, ika, maguro
and of course my favorite salmon
wow, this was particularly a treat because i dont get to eat this very often. the soft buttery flavor just melts in your mouth!
a delicious warm soup to chase the rainy gloom away…
