This was the sashimi platter in their omakase dinner set. And it was such an appetite-whetter.

It came with tender, soft spider prawn with a delicate, sweet texture. Hamachi or yellowtail had that characteristic firm bite and rich, buttery flavor. Finally katsuo or skipjack tuna, my first time trying this sashimi, which was lightly seared over charcoal, leaving just a slightly crisp skin and imparting a beautiful smoky flavor unlike any other sashimi I've eaten.

And the wasabi, oh the wasabi. The paste was freshly ground and had such a refined, sweet texture to it, just barely tickling the tastebuds for that oomph.
