Lemon Ginger Spring 5-Course Degustation Menu A milk chocolate financier acted as a centerpiece for torched meringue, lemon cream and ginger spiced sorbet. Sprinkled around was spice-infused jelly cubes and toasted tiger nuts. A ginger ribbon tuile was delicately balanced on top. It was paired with my favorite wine pairing of the night, Antech Semi Sweet Sparkling, a mellow, sweet champagne. And champagne is always fun. This was a close second favorite among the five courses. The refreshing lemon flavor threaded through all the elements of the dessert, balanced out the richness of the financier. Yet there was a subtle undertone of spice in the jelly cubes, meringue and tuile that was not too overpowering. The nuts and tuile added amazing texture and crunch to the dish. It was a wonderful end to the degustation menu.

Kinkan Osmanthus Tea Spring 5-Course Degustation Menu Kinkan is the Japanese name for kumquat, which I have never tried before. In this Japanese-inspired dessert the fruit was paired with pistachio crumble, osmanthus tea gel and shungiku ice cream. Smoked cream, olive oil marinaded pomelo and sprinklings of yuzu powder finished off the dish. It was paired with a glass of Gramona Gewurztraminer, a delicious, sweet white wine. I am thoroughly impressed by the fact that none of the alcoholic drinks had that characteristic bitter aftertaste that comes from cheap alcohol. The dessert itself was reminiscent of an apple crumble. The pistachio's earthy flavor contrasted perfectly with the natural citrusy sweetness of the kinkan and the tea-like taste of the shinjuku ice cream. It was absolutely delicious and nostalgic.
