We usually order the foie gras truffle yakiniku 馃構馃構but we decided to try a few other popular dons.

*
Salted duck egg char siew. The Nagano pork belly char siew was super tender. Served with onsen egg, mixed mushroom and golden salted duck egg hollandaise over sushi rice. Yummy!
*
Black garlic and roasted leek negitoro. Chopped fatty tuna and scallions seasoned with black garlic and roasted leek soy topped with onsen egg over the signature rice. I found this to be least tasty of the dons we had.
*
My favourite still goes to the foie gras truffle yakiniku!

Yes I am back again!

Lunch was so good and worth it that @blueskiescottonclouds and I were back with a party of 8. It would have been 10 but the whole sushiya was already booked out.
*
As with most sushiyas, fish served is seasonal and we had amadai (tilefish, part of the sea bream family) to start the sushi course with.

My first time being served cold chawanmushi.

It was a completely different experience and it tasted a little like cold custard. It went really well with the white corn from Hokkaido. While I enjoyed it, I think I still prefer my chawanmushi hot.

Nodoguro (blackthroat seaperch).

The first thing we asked Chef @kojikoike1118 was whether he had nodoguro. When he said that it was not part of our set, we immediately requested an additional order.
*
When Chef Koji saw us taking a picture of the tray, he put the perfectly aburi-ed nodoguro right in front of us 馃槀.

Aburi kinmedai (seared golden eye snapper).

This was served instead of the nodoguro (blackthroat seaperch) we had the last time around. Chef @kojikoike1118's aburi sushi are very well executed. I love them and this was no exception. Oishii!

Iwashi (sardine).

@blueskiescottonclouds and I were delighted that @kojikoike1118 could accommodate our request. This was super delicious. The best I've had. So oily and strong tasting 馃槏馃槏馃槏.

Braised buri (yellowtail).

I have to admit that I was initially disappointed that we weren't served the ebi kakiage (shrimp and vegetable tempura) which was so good I was looking forward to it.
*
The braised buri was equally if not more delicious that the disappointment became a new high 馃槉. The sauce was so tasty that @blueskiescottonclouds and I asked for rice to mop it up!

Otoro (fatty tuna).

I would normally be absolutely satisfied with a good chutoro (semi fatty tuna) but I also can't resist a good otoro, especially when it is aged well. This was sublime!

Signature hot bowls - beef and foie gras.

After raving about Yuki Onna's Make Your Own Bowl (MYOB) dons, I decided to try their beef and foie gras signature hot bowl. *
I was a little disappointed. At $22.90, I was expecting chunky-sized char grilled beef but it was instead served with thin slices of beef. Both the beef slices and foie gras were also not charred enough. The serving was large and the yuzu kosho sauce with onsen egg was tasty but it was a case of quantity vs quality. I would have preferred less bulk but better cuts of meat.
*
I think I will stick to their raw dishes which I actually do like!

Superb selection of sake at Kappo Shunsui.

We had 3 different junmai ginjo recommended by Takamasa-San that night. I generally prefer junmai ginjo to junmai daiginjo as it has more body and flavour. Junmai daiginjo, on the other hand, is sometimes too pure and smooth.
*
My favourite was the first one we had. Hoshiizumi Muroka Nama Genshu from Aichi prefecture. It was an unfiltered (muroka), unpasteurized (nama) and undiluted (genshu) sake. It was more complex and yet it tasted fresh.
*
The second sake we had was the Sharaku Bansyu Yamadanishiki from Fukushima prefecture. The flavour was bolder and more distinct compared to the first.
*
The last one we had was more refined and elegant but still as dramatic. Hanamura Omachi from Akira prefecture.
*
As you enter the restaurant, you will see a sake ball hanging from the ceiling. The sugidama (cedar ball) was originally put outside a brewery when fresh sake was brewed. Once the leaves turned brown, customers would know that the sake had been aged and was ready to drink. If you visit the sake breweries in Japan, you will still see a sugidama hanging outside.

Charcoal grilled chicken.

As if we did not have enough food, @sk_food_and_travel and @blueskiescottonclouds decided to add on this dish. The voice of reason, aka me, did not manage to dissuade them 馃槀!
*
This was grilled crispy yet tender on the inside but it may be slightly on the salty side for some.

Simmered head of a snapper.

Thanks to @blueskiescottonclouds who went to recce the place earlier, we knew we had to order this. She said that it tasted as good as the braised tuna cheek we love so much from Ezo Seafoods in Niseko. Did it live up to expectations? Definitely a resounding yes. It was so sweet and delicious.
