On their lunch menu the description of Vegetable Domburi looked good, and so it turned out. Each generous serve included cubes of tempura tofu, silverbeet tsukudani, and avocado – on a bed of sushi rice – accompanied by a bowl of light miso soup. Great value at $14.00.
For dessert we shared a dish of Uji Kintoki Parfait – $9.00.
I’ll quote the menu description: “Green tea ice cream, green tea sauce, green tea sable, azuki paste, condensed milk, green tea powder, whipped cream.”
The velvety, green tea ice cream was, to use a rare phrase, absolutely goluptious.
Glasses of mellow Pol Gessner (an inexpensive champagne from the house of Lanson) matched the food admirably.
