This luxurious appetizer has a base of succulent fatty grilled duck liver foie gras, with bold meaty savoury salty flavour, topped with a bouncy tender whole scallop, which has a delicate briny salty sweet flavour.
.
Garnished with shouyu / dark soy sauce, gloubes of tobiko / flying fish roe, katsuobushi / bonito fish flakes, vegetal spicy shishito pepper, and chrysanthemum flowers.
.
Yum.

This is a premium, off-menu seasonal special, recommended to us by staff.
.
It features thinly sliced sheets of raw hirame / flounder fish, with a soft firm juicy bite to texture, topped with creamy succulent grainy dollops of uni / sea urchin.
.
Staff asked us to pair it with the crisp slices of red radish and a light drizzle of lemon juice, then eat it all in together.
.
This results in a layered taste experience; the sharp zesty sour note at the front, then the vegetal bitter earthy touch and the sweet savoury flavour of the flounder fish, followed by the final burst of briny salty sweet note from the sea urchin.

Get over the hump at this speciality sake joint.
.
This is a tokubetsu honjozo rice sake varietal, which means the white rice is milled to between 30 - 40% polish.
.
Made in the Saga prefecture, Kyushu region of Japan, it has a clear, transparent colour, with tastes and aromas of barley, white rice, lime, and red apple.
.
The body is smooth, bright, and refreshing, with a fruity grainy sweet flavour, and an effervescent finish that quickly fades away.
.
Their sake cups are really pretty as well, with raised and textured ceramic koi fishes on the base of each brightly coloured porcelain cup.
.
Staff utilise a proper decanter to serve the sake, keeping the bottle in the refrigerator to ensure it remains chilled, and circle around regularly to ensure it's kept topped up; yet another example of their great service here.
