I’ve posted about this place before. But it’s so good that I want to post again. This time though I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Guess where we went tonight.

Baked Oysters


Beef for Shabu Shabu

Doufu and Vegetables Shabu Shabu

Pasta, Oriental Style with Uni

Pasta with uni! The Cat was impressed. The Cat had two servings of this. I liked it too but there were other foods that I was really interested in (scroll down to find out).

Stewed Eggplant


Japanese Vegetable Stew with Araimo

Snow Crab Legs

Lemon Slices

No reason, I just thought the lemon slices would make a nice picture, plus The Cat likes lemon in her drinking water (what a strange kitty)(just kidding). 😉

Soft Doufu

Soft Doufu with Soy Sauce

Asparagus Spears

Tomatoes and Cucumbers

Not sure if you can tell but the tomatoes are peeled. Ever since The Cat had tomatoes here, The Mouse peels the tomatoes at home (the peeling technique is for another post). I peel the cucumbers too.

Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura

The color of the tempura was slightly tinged because they were sitting under a heat lamp.

Deep Fried Shrimp Heads and Legs

This is the stuff that doesn’t go into the shrimp tempura. Although the shrimp tempura was good, the other parts were better. Think deep fried fish bones.

Everything before is the opening act. These are the main headliners (to me anyway). Drum roll please, tah dah!


Uni and Ikura Sushi!

The Mouse was extremely happy. Nom nom nom.

A Sample of the Mouse's Plate

The above picture is what my plate looked liked several times over. Yum

More Food

I didn’t just eat sashimi, uni, and ikura. I did sample the other selections (from the top, asparagus spears, fresh shiitake mushrooms from the shabu shabu pan with sesame seed sauce, lamb chop, roasted garlic cloves, roasted sweet potato, and grilled rib eye steak. They were all delicious.

Tamago Sushi and Sweetened Black Soy Beans with Chestnut

The savory portion of the dinner ended with tamago sushi and sweetened black soy beans with chestnut. The sweetened black soy beans and chestnut is a traditional Japanese dish eaten at new years (not sure why).

The dessert selections included:

Fruit Cocktail Salad

Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pie

Selection of Pastries

They also had azuki beans with mochi, and mochi balls on skewers.

Do you know where we were yet? If you guessed here. You would be correct.

Sorry, no prize for guessing right, we ate the prize. 😉
