The starter dish of Chikuyotei's $138 7-course omakase; this extremely refreshing yuba skin. Fresh off an experience at an Okinawan restaurant where I had extremely delicious tofu, I had high expectations which were decidedly surpassed due to the addition of the ikura.

The yuba's cold temperature played a big role in how refreshing it was. It had that creamy, delicate texture and a light soybean taste. But that generous spoonful of ikura added just that delightful pop of saltiness and umami that elevated the flavor of the entire dish. Really excellent starter to what was a delicious meal.
