And if someone asks.. hot or cold? i usually say “Cold.. and your smoothest please!”
We really got hammered this time.. Whilst the sashimi was indisputably fresh and in a class of its own, the price was just over the top – 3 pieces of toro at rm53 EACH! Luckily the yellow tail was just rm17 each. The scallops at RM20 each for a tinsy-winsy morsel. Too much really. And also, those highlighted in the photo, are only, well, those highlighted. So imagine the damage.
(Thank goodness dinner was not on me that night. haha!)
In Japan, it is usually served as a medicinal soup made with matsutake mushrooms – dobin means teapot and mushi means steamed! How apt! The specially designed pot for DM looks just like a small teapot. However, on top of the lid of the pot, there is a small inverted saucer. When you “drink” the soup, you use the small saucer as a soup bowl. Included in the dobin mushi were white fish, prawn, ginko nuts, matsutake mushrooms and mizuna vegetable in a broth of bonto and Japanese citrus.
I love this dainty lil soup. One teapot for one person.. almost seems like too much of a good thing!
Pleased to introduce…
(but we know it’s Mayo ..haha)
Ebi is not on the menu. Ebi is special.
Not bad, but this dish alone sent our cholesterol levels to infinity and beyond. Yee-ha!
So.. you think you can eat… ?! Watch this…
Next on the menu are , huge-ass oysters from Canada (so say the Chef)
Many rolls, weird squidgy sea-creatures and kampai’s later… we were ready for dessert…
Now when the Chef sends over dessert, on-the-house, it’s normally one of 2 things.
1. He is really generous and your best mate from another life
2. Your bill for 3 persons averages RM250 per head.
( You have a 50% chance of getting this one right:P)
Like i said before, and i’ll say it again, “I am SO glad I am not picking up this tab”!
Truth be told, this mochi with red bean and strawberry ice-cream was TO DIE FOR.
And pretty too!
I nearly couldn’t bring myself to eat it. (Errr, not really)
All in all, a fantastic meal. Too rich for my blood though… in more ways than one:P
