Beef tartare w capers & a cured egg... 😟 First things first, the cured egg was rock hard like a firm jelly with too much gelatin. It did not ooze & there was no way to mix it in w the beef tartare. And it was too sticky it got stuck in between the teeth. Absolutely disappointing! Beef tho, was tender but not very flavorful. To charge $17 for a dish like that is definitely not acceptable. Better luck next time 😕

Steamed egg with kuruma ebi 🦐 & sauce Américaine. Soft egg custard with umami flavors. For $12, this comes at a real high price. Chawanmushi fills only 1/4 of the bowl, so shallow there's isn't much depth for the spoon to dig in. I wouldn't recommend getting this even as a side, unless they decide to fill more egg.

Rice bowl of the week was the Oyakodon (Chicken & Egg bowl) 🐣 The lunch set comes w appetizer (tofu & fish), soup (fish soup), chawanmushi (steamed egg), pickles & dessert (froyo). Quite a steep price for oyakodon in my opinion and a fairly small serving as well. The chicken to rice ratio wasn't balanced, leaving me with more rice to chicken. The caramelized onions in the bowl was a nice sweet touch. Chawanmushi that came in the set was far too shallow. With only 1/4 of it filled, scooping was difficult as the spoon hits the base.
