Who: Girlfriends and Me
When: Thursday Lunch
Wear: Roppongi Hills DayTime
Why: I was curious
Lately I have been dying to try this place. I actually have made my own vegetarian sushi (I am attaching a photograph of my own attempt) and it was terrific learning how to do this. One of my girlfriends is someone who actually doesn't like seafood/sushi, so how great is it to be able to have a "sushi" experience with someone who doesn't necessarily like fish?
The restaurant is located on the TV Asahi side of Kayakizaki and across from Armani boutique. It's a beautiful open space.
There is a Gaijin-friendly menu. We all opted for the most expensive lunch set (2500yen)/ no picture). The courses were all beautifully presented. Flavors and presentations were gorgeous. Despite being vegetarian, it was a TOTAL feast on the eyes as well as the palate. I'll be honest and say I kind of craved more, but intellectually, I knew the portion was enough. My advise would be to savour the meal. Don't rush. It really felt like eating works of art.
