Sauteed Mushrooms (daily special; $11) hon-shimeji, king oyster, maitake, shiitake, and crimini sauteed in tamari butter
- First bites strangely delicious. When it was down to the tiny bits, butteriness was of course faint. Maybe try to eat this in large bites using a spoon instead of having to finish with boring small bits on the plate.
- I was intrigued by this because of the cornflakes, which I'd hoped would give a good crunch. Sadly, it barely registered.
- Overall quite bland tasting. for once I used some soy on a sushi roll.
Salmon Oshisushi ($13.95) wild salmon, jalapeno, creamy sauce, cracked black pepper, torch seared
- Watch out for that jalapeno slice on top because it packs an explosion of heat. Thankfully it won't linger on the tongue too long. The sushi bite is tasty enough without the jalapeno or just a bit of it.
- Definitely a smokiness bordering on burnt thanks to the searing on top.
- One big scoop of ice cream, thankfully not still frozen hard, which can sometimes be the case with deep fried ice cream.
- Cake-like batter around the ice cream.
- Overall not much different from just having a scoop of ice cream with maybe a bit of cake on the side. Big scoop, but at $8 pretty pricey unless you are already okay with buying $6 scoops at boutique ice cream shops.
Gluten free soy sauce!
Despite being packed right away when they opened, staff were calm and unrushed. Also felt like the kitchen also delivered the food quite promptly.
