Today is Auntie M’s b-day, but today she went to play mah-jong. So, it was dinner last night.

Gyotaku

Gyotaku Menu, Chandelier, Crab Cakes, Lemon Wedges

I think this is one of Aunty’s “go-to” places. Aunty orders the senior portion of miso butterfish (sorry, no picture, he chopstick speed is like “Kung Fu Panda’s Shifu).:)

Miso Soup, Side Salad

The Cat ordered the “daily special”.

I think next time I’ll ask them to leave off the bulldog sauce, I prefer ketchup (just my opinion).

Beef Tongue Curry

Leave off the cheese next time, not quite a match (again, just my opinion).

Hot Noodle Soup

Ume on the side

Ume on the side

It was supposed to go into the noodles, server was kind enough to serve it on the side, The Cat wasn’t too sure about the combination.

Condiment Bowls

Condiment Bowls

The Mouse liked the one on the left, The Cat liked the one on the right. Go figure.

Back Door

Back Door

The Mouse liked the place, The Cat liked it a little less. She prefers Sushi Izakaya Gaku, difference being one is a restaurant, one is an izakaya.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sorta.

She has a Japanese client in a “challenging” situation. The Cat’s been meeting with the hired “fixer” to help resolve the issues. Since a lot of business is discussed at meals, a few dinner meetings.

Oh well, it’s business.

Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.:)
