First off Sake list. @beefnoguy to sommelier’s credit he did steer towards the Junmai even though it’s JD centric. If you are not sake inclined, some adequately aged DRC’s available too
Beverage pairing for the night - Kazuryu Junmai followed by Hakurakusei JG
All the classics. Everything cooked a yakitori appropriate à point. I.e pinkish hue, or slightly oozy for the heart. Highlights were the heart, neck skin, tsukune and veges (yes I didn’t expect it). But everything was very good. Only miss is the duck, I would have preferred it a touch rarer.
Optional carb course, choice between a saboro-don or tori chazuke. Opted for the saboro paired with a chicken broth which reminded me of the soup accompanying hainanese chicken rice.
Additional customer feedback. Would have liked another pickle option to enjoy over the course of dinner and a light dessert in addition to the hojicha to wrap up.
Properly kitted loo. Toto + Aesop
