|Amabuki Daiginjo- Probably the easiest Sake to drink for Miss FH|
Miss food hunter together with her parents were looking for traditional japanese fare but unforuntately, Ajimi was closed on a wednesday night and Miss food hunter thought to detour to the closest @ Eagle street. Though Sake offers more contemporary Jap, we were all really glad we tried!
We created our own Sashimi platter. We had the Kingfish, Snapper and Salmon Belly. The standout was the belly and my parents wanted another portion but it was SOLD OUT!!
The Venison tataki was from the Specials menu and if i were to recall correctly, it was served with crispy garlic pieces, kumquat slices and watercress. The thin slivers of meat were a tad chewy, overall an OK dish.
The Scampi Tempura with sweet ponzu, corriander and jalapeno we all loved. The batter was light, the scampi tails were tender and the ponzu sauce was light being not too sweet. Good that there were slivers of radish beneath too.
Mum ordered the Miso marinated Butterfish, this is yet another good choice! The butterfish was firm and moist in flesh and reminded us of a good baked cod. The miso had a flavourful complexity, it was sweet and goes very well with warm rice!
And yes, you can get a good cuppa long black to end off a very good meal!
Looking forward to a return visit with Mr food hunter in tow and explore the rest of Sake's tantalising menu ; )
