Kozasa in Winter
Posted November 12, 2016on:
I was pretty excited to try out what Kozasa would offer during winter.
My eyes opened when he took out that box…
Just look at those massive tongues of murasaki uni!!
I think this might have been grilled nodoguro.
I was quite surprised to try this, it was karasumi, or dried mullet roe.
Some aburi toro cubes.
Then he started slicing up some thick chunks of buri, which is the older and fatter yellowtail in winter.
Putting them on the grill.
Dressing them up.
Fresh and juicy (braised?) mushrooms, what I presume to be shiitake.
This signals the start of the sushi course.
For some crazy reason, he served otoro 4 times for this dinner, including this otoro maki! Not that I’m complaining of course!
And I guess maybe that was also the reason he didn’t end off with the usual tamago.
