Sweet Broth on a Rainy Day
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…
