I had a long week last week. Early mornings, late nights, six hours of back to back calls on Valentine’s night. Yep, it was one of those weeks. When the clock struck 6pm on Friday, I was happy enough to just go home and sleep, but Panu suggested out of the blue that he take me to dinner at Saké Restaurant instead.
Who am I to complain? I certainly married the right guy!
wagyu new style: thin slices of wagyu beef slightly seared with hot oil & finished
with ginger, chives & yuzu soy
salt & pepper tofu: crispy fried tofu pieces with chilli & spring onion
nasu dengaku: grilled eggplant with light and dark miso pastes
tonkatsu cups: 4 pieces of panko-fried pork belly & spring onion bites,
served in lettuce cups with mustard miso and Japanese barbeque sauce
gindara saikyo-yaki: caramelised, miso marinated silver cod
the bonsai: nashi pear custard with chocolate soil & baby sorrel
ps. all photos taken with iPhone again. Surprise dinner = no camera on me but hey, I am really becoming a rather lazy food blogger these days anyway. Blame instagram, aiight?
