Other Menu Items
Listed below, are some of the items that we sampled
Chef’s choice of three appetizers
370++ (436 baht net) – a small appetizer set consisting of a firm texture, slightly sweet and salty duck meat, lightly salted deep-fried small shrimp (should not be left for long as it may turn soft), and thick slices of Japanese eel served with vinegar soaked seaweed. Sweet and sour, refreshing.
The items in this menu will change from day to day.
A4 Australian Wagyu Tataki
750++ (883 baht net) – The meat was not so fatty, but still soft and smooth on the tongue. with a slight beefy aroma. Perfect when paired with the yuzu-flavored ponzu sauce, which gave off a distinctive citrus scent. Personally, I like this dish very much.
Tokusen Sashimi Moriawase (Small)
2,950++ (3,472 baht net) – Premium sashimi set, featuring large mouthful portions, which includes Hamachi Otoro, Japanese red snapper, salmon, tuna, sweet shrimp, and Japanese scallops. Full marks for the freshness and quality of the raw materials. Absolutely worth it.
However, from our observation, particularly the sweet shrimp, although its meat was definitely sweet but was also quite mucid, which may not be to some diners’ liking (I didn’t like it).
Moriawase Matsu Sushi
2,500++ (2,942 baht net) – A sushi set that consisted of soft plump rice grains, loosely molded, with a mild sour taste. More meat was given than the rice. Very satisfying, high-quality raw materials. There were some portions that I personally like in particular:
Smooth and creamy that melted in your mouth. Sweet and not bitter. No overwhelming smell of fish. The problem was that there was only one portion. Must decide who should get it.
Smooth and creamy texture. Simply melts in your mouth.
Salmon Roe topping
Soft salmon roe with a light greasy taste. Not too salty. Gave off a slight aroma of the sea and seaweed. Very delicious.
Japanese Scallop topping
Mild lemon aroma, soft and thick fresh clams.
Firm and tender texture, not puffy at all.
Fresh fish. Sweet and fatty with a slightly sour taste of the rice.
Mutsu no sumibi yaki (Shio)
850++ (1,000 baht net) – Grilled snow fish, smooth texture, juicy, creamy, crispy skin, and slightly salty. A simple dish, but super delicious.
390++ (459 baht net) – An assortment of tempura items, such as shrimp, squid, salmon, and pumpkin. The batter was deliciously crispy batter with a slight smell of frying oil.
The prawns were not so large, but not too small either. Fresh but not too tender. This dish should be finished quickly as it tends to wither when left for a while.
A4 Australian Wagyu Beef Shabu-Shabu
1,600++ (1,883 baht net) – Shabu Hot Pot Set with Australian Wagyu Beef. The soup was a bit mild but was flavored by the vegetables and meat when boiled for a while. To fully enjoy this dish, the meat should be blanched just enough for it to be cooked otherwise it may turn out to be too coarse.
