There is a typhoon passing through this weekend, so we've been having rain since about Friday...lots of rain (and wind).
After Satoshi's class yesterday, we met up at NU Chayamachi to try out a buffet...Imo to Daikon (ee-mow-toe-die-con--which literally means potato & radish in Japanese).
Most buffets give you a time limit and this one gives you 2 hours...wow! that was more than enough time for us.
They had many vegetable dishes and more fish than meat dishes...they even had a delicious tomato soup! which I wouldn't mind trying to re-create.
That photo was my first round...I went back a couple more times after that, trying a little each time.
Intriguing were the desserts...soy milk pudding topped with honey sweetened tomatoes, okara (soy lees) black bean cake...the honey sweetened tomatoes, well, they tasted like tomatoes...good but kinda not what I expected.
The cake was really moist, tasty...I wouldn't mind trying to re-create this too.
The price of the buffet kinda made us hesitate at 2400 yen (about US$24) per person, because we usually don't eat our share. And this price doesn't include alcohol. The food is delicious, but I think this is a "special occasion" type of place.
