A few highlights from last night's meal.
Scallop with avocado mouse, peas and marinated radish. One of the best bites of the evening. The avocado mousse had some fish sauce and crunchy elements. Great bite with all of the elements.
Maguro sashimi with 3 sauces. The black sauce was basically a concentrated seaweed sauce. Loved the red and black sauce mixed with a piece of sashimi. The maguro was very fresh and some of the best we've had recently.
Giant clam and uni pasta. They remembered we asked for a double portion the last time and asked us before hand if we wanted a double portion again. Amazing stuff.
Crab with uni and fluffy egg whites. The uni wasn't necessary here but a luxury. The crab and broth were warm and delicious. Great flavors of the ocean.
Soft shell crab with beet/plum sauce. Very nicely fried.
A5 Miyazaki with foie gras in soy bean paste broth. There was live charcoal under this leaf still cooking everything. The meat was amazing and the broth did not overpower. Excellent char. A great combination of fatty meat with foie gras.
Sashimi. Kumamoto oyster, snapper from Japan and 2 other fishes I forget. Nice.
Sushi. Snapper and something else. The sushi was delicious.
Not pictured was a great toro roll with scallion. Ate it before I could take a picture. Great roll. The nori was crisp and delicious. Such a simple thing elevated the roll. There were 2 other pieces of sushi I forgot to take pictures of. These were actually the two best pieces - black throat and yellow tail.
Another amazing meal at n/naka. The service is top notch. All of the food was well executed and beautifully presented. A real dining extravaganza. They were out of the Born Gold, a very popular option at $80 so we ordered the Dassai 23 at $200. This was a great bottle of sake and stood up well to all of the dishes. We're not sake experts but this was the best sake we've ever had. I saw the bottle of Dassi Beyond but $950 is a little out of our price range. Maybe one day.
