The main reason is to try their food.
Even if I was invited, I am honest person. If I was not impressed, I would not say so. I was truly impressed by their policy, careful cooking and hospitality.
The top left, Sashimi. The cream yellow & green slices are soy milk & kind of seaweed. Delicacy.
The bottom may look like sake. Yes, usually this container is for sake.
To my surprise, it was a soup. In the photo, it's hard to see, but there is a slice of Tatami Iwashi sitting in. Tatami iwashi is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatami_Iwashi.
I expected little fishy flavor, yet, it wasn't. Smooth, almost like light consomme soup soothes your stomach, stimulates your appetite.
For labels, I added macrobiotics and vegan. Yes, this course menu has fish, but their another specialty is vegetarian ( macrobiotic ) lunch box, so please look forward to the photo , which comes later this week.
Thank you for visiting my blog as always.
