In the flurry of freshly-steamed snow white flour cake bleeds a deep brown heart of caramelly sweetness.
(Yes, I can't help but wax lyrical about this).
Best paired with either Soju or Beer, the L.A. Style Black Angus Kalbi is possibly the side that enticed your palette for more! The dish consists of black angus bone in short rib, marinated in soy & topped with shiitake & scallion. Every mouthful oozes of umami flavors, leaving you wanting to go for seconds, thirds & possibly a fourth if your pocket could handle it.
I would say it was my first time eating chirashi and it was quite a nice experience. Do reserve the seats as I wasn't able to get window seats. 😂
When I first dip into the rice, it is very nice and fluffy. Following, I took a bite at the salmon that is rich and fresh. I personally like salmon compared to the yellowtail and tuna. The yellowtail is little big. If you keep eating the chirashi, it will get jelak. When complement with the avocado, it helps to take away the jelak feeling. Or you can try the chawamushi which is soft and has some meat, mushroom inside. The salad is mediocre. The salad dressing taste like the one as the China salad dressing at the supermarket. I can make the miso soup at home. I didn't realise it was too salty til my bf mentioned it. Next are pickles, unagi and some crunchy vegetable I can't name. The dessert is soft to bite and has a cooling and subtle black sesame taste. I wasn't able to detect the black sesame taste. Still a good experience. And are the bowls very light? Because I hear them dropping twice.
Berries of the Forest: this dessert really is a thing of beauty, from the glossy outside to vibrant purple layers inside, the colours are eye-catching, and so are the intense taste of berries.
Yes, with sparkling water! The purpose of the sparkling water is to cleanse the palette. You can take the sparkling water before or after the shot, but taking it before is recommended for you to enjoy the full and balanced flavour of the coffee shot! And yes, this shot is so much more balanced than the average, I didn't cringe after finishing mine!
