The owner selected a Japanese sake that pairs well with the sashimi.

The sea bream milt had the softest texture.
Yummmmm!!!!!

c00127-28-min

The sixth item.

It was accompanied by pickles and soup.

c00127-34-min

When the fruits and the anglaise sauce melded together in my mouth, it almost tasted like a custard pudding ala mode.
The sweetness and the acidity of the fruits and the custard like flavor of the sauce are delectable. Yummmmmmm!!!!!!!!

c00127-39-min

The combination of the acidic sweetness and anglaise sauce is divine.

c00127-40-min

It was an amazing fruit gelatin, with the sweetness of the anglaise sauce that brings out the acidity of the fresh fruits, and the well balanced proportions.
It was amazingly delicious. Thank you!!

From start to finish, I experienced amazing cooking techniques to maximize the inherent flavors of the ingredients and the thoughtful selection of dishes to display them.
I sincerely was glad to have been born in Japan.
I would choose this to be my last meal!! From the flavors to the service, it was a dinning experience which fulfilled both mind and body.
・For those who love Japanese food.
・For those who want to enjoy the inherent flavors of the ingredients.
・For those looking for a place to have a special dinner for celebrations or taking someone out.
I strongly recommend “Yuki” in Kitashinchi.
