The Dirty Stall

February Omakase

Posted on: March 1, 2010

1st course: Japanese salad

This warm appetizer is built on a base of Mizuno greens which looks very similar to rocket but has a milder taste. Rounding it up is a mix of toppings – tomatoes, tofu, avocado, pan-fried shiitake mushrooms and sesame seeds.

2nd course: Sashimi moriawase

Ikura, maguro, hamachi, shake, kanpachi, engawa, mekajiki, hotate

3rd course: Kodai shioyaki

Kodai is a kind of sea bream, normally caught at the start for the year for New Year eating. Its body was contorted into an S-shape by skewering it, gives the impression of leaping πŸ˜€ Sides was stewed miso eggplant, very very soft and tasty!

4th course: Beef stew

This is the usual beef stew that you would make at home with carrots and onions, etc but the special thing here was the beef used. It is just 1 grade below wagyu so when it was stewed for about 2 hours, the beef becomes super tender and just falls apart in your mouth even without chewing. Superb stuff, and the soup was very rich as well.

5th course: Seafood nabe

Seafood hotpot! Manila clams, Alaskan king crab, enoki mushrooms and tofu. The soup was something reminiscent of the kind we get in fish soup beehoon but this was much tastier since it was boiled with the clams and crab.

There was also a strong hint of ginger, not to hide the fishy taste but instead to complement and bring out the seafood tastes. At the bottom was thin udon to finish up with the soup.

6th course: Aburi uni temaki

Creamy uni + creamy avocado, wrapped in crispy seaweed. Just picture that in your head and I don’t think I really have to describe what it was like πŸ˜€

7th course: Aburi beef sushi

This was my favourite part of the omakase, succulent seared wagyu beef on sushi rice. The marbled fats in the beef came out nice and juicy and gave it an explosion of taste when I chomped down on them.

8th course: Yuzu ice-cream
