Delicious soba salad with prawns - this photo/description doesn't do it justice...it was beautiful!



Tender/buttery salmon sashimi with octopus, the vegetable/shellfish salad in the small glass totally confounded us - it was amazing (but we still don't know what it was)


picture this: crunchy softshell crab wrapped in marinated, sushi-grade salmon - stunning!


saikoro steak was truly the standout dish in a menu of excellence...meltingly tender beef with an incredibly "beefy" taste cooked to perfection.


 unagi (eel) maki - luscious!


super inventive - who would ever think to put scallops & cheese together? we fought to eat the last piece of "scallop pizza"


dessert was a "sake bomb"


love the interesting concept accents: "obi" style banquet seating was cozy/comfortable


metres of sake...we only got through 2 bottles



Grappa Sassicaia - perfect after dinner digestif!

Suggested to me years ago by my good friend from Penang who's Chinese; this is still my go to place for Hong Kong-style noodles, roast duck, crispy pork...this trip I tried the fried noodle-wrapped shrimp - crunchy and tasty.




One of the best desserts by far: a piece of mango, surrounded by custard and deep fried - decadent and surprisingly savory (not very sweet)

 The best coffee, hands down...always get it right when you go with italian espresso!

Our favorite lunch spot - they serve a gorgeously pristine ginger steamed fish...it's a revelation - trust!
