Excellent lunch at Mori today. Served an excellent shrimp based Kasutera (sponge cake style) tamago towards the end. Terrific texture and flavor served with a light dab of shoyu and wasabi. I believe this is the first time I’ve had this style at Mori.
They continue to offer a stellar QPR IMO here in LA. Itamaes are all excellent, great rice and shari served at right temperatures to optimize flavor.
My meal comprised of the following (sorry no pics):
Ishidai - stone snapper
Suzuki kelp marinated
Sawara - salt marinated and lightly seared
Sakura masu - cherry trout
Wild Shima aji
Kasuo dai - salt marinated with yuzu
Maguro - North Carolina bluefin
Otoro - Boston
Tsoui Kani (sp?) - Japanese snow crab from Kanazawa waters. Lightly warmed.
SB Uni - flawless
