SAll I can say is that I have heard so so so SO much about this place. And I am a HUGE Japanese / Sushi fan. I’ve eaten a LOT of it. EVERYWHERE.
Definitely lives up to the hype. I suggest you take a trip to Baltimore specifically to eat here. Make sure you have a big empty tummy ready to fill up. If needed, walk around the aquarium first.
[Note that it’s day time and bright out… we ended up skipping our original train ticket to eat more and go home later!]
I’m ready to rock and roll… [WOK and roll HAHAHA get it? Yeah I know bad joke, but AT LEAST I’m laughing!!!!]
Look familiar? Apparently they donate 1$ to breast cancer research everytime someone orders this. YAY
It’s called the Maiko Onee and contained hakutake sochu, pamplemousse rose, and yuzu. YUMMMMMM…
And before we knew what we were getting ourselves into, a little plate of small bites arrived. DELISH
Happy Spoons [oysters, caviar, mine had uni and lots of happiness], eel rilette, miso- carrot/burdock, ohitashi [the spinach], lotus root and tiny tiny white fishies.. I forgot what they’re called but so tender and yummy
SUCHHHH a palette opener. SO delicious. I could’ve used another plate. Haha. Sharing is hard when food is this good.
Good thing next course W and I both had our own bowls of sashimi. AMAAAAAZING.
There was this one fish, seared… you eat with ginger and scallions. OMFG. Amazing. This was the most amazing fresh delicious creamy sashimi EVAAA
And suddenly we got free sake
Next came the most beautiful creamy custard-y soft homemade tofu. SOOO much better than the other day.
Some nori, scallion, mushrooms, japanese yam and OMG the tofu…….
Seeng this guy at work knew… yakitori was in the works
Foie Gras Pops wrapped in Nori.
HOLY FUCKING HELL. SOOO GOOD. I love my foie. This was amaze balls.
At this point I was about to burst. So I ordered some hot tea to help wash it down…
But I’m a trooper, so off I go go go
I’m pretty sure there were more nigiri… but.. just relooking at all of these makes me full again hahaha… we ended with this. “Just one more… just one more…”
And it was simple and delicious.
But of course there is always ALWAYS room for desserts.
Gingerbread amazement. MIND BLOWING.
No words just perfection. Go. Now.
