PART III to Ciki’s Birthday Week
Anyway, I had been badgering Cumi to check this place out for a week now, and so it was with great surprise when we walked in and saw Bari aka Barricudda! and Edwin, who are both our friends.. what a small world!
Cumi knows Bari from his adventure activities (Bari is an accomplished diver and daredevil.. amongst other things ahem..) and I know Edwin from Hajime. You can see and feel the upbeat tempo and deco of the place from the moment you look at the menu, drawn out to look like the Tokyo subway, to the ‘green-lung’ in the centre of that cozy bar.
Well, if you’ve been following my birthday week, you will see this was the perfect place for us for dinner that night, because after eating that humongous lunch only hours ago and birthday cake courtesy of fbb, we were still stuffed. (well, cumi was.. me .. i was ready for dinner!)
The Umeshu which Edwin gave us on the house (sweetie!) was the ‘Taru’ Umeshu which was a premium Umeshu(plum wine) that’s stored in Oak barrels for a premium finish. Not too sweet like some other brand of Umeshu for sure.
Sardine with a not dissimilar feel to that of beef jerky(I call this fish jerky), dipped in the Japanese mayo, also a winner. Don’t let my description of the texture put you off – the flavour is smoky and grows on you the more you eat it.
There’s me fighting tooth and nail with my food. My, my .. what strong jaws u have ciki. All mine – cumi would have none of this
Thanks Bari and Edwin for a smashing night:)
