There is a company that has wine shops around Japan and overseas called Enoteca.
We have one in Osaka and they have a little cafe/bar towards the back of the shop.
I've always wanted to try their food, so one weekend, when Satoshi didn't have his language class, we went to check out their lunch menu.
I ordered the lasagna...1155 yen and Satoshi ordered the beef stew...945 yen
Both dishes came with some bread, a salad and a beverage.
You can choose a hot beverage like coffee or tea, soft drinks or wine. Since we were in a wine shop, Satoshi and I both chose red wine.
The wine they gave us was a 2010 Montes Merlot (Chile)...medium body and really nice for the dishes we chose.
My lasagna came screaming hot while Satoshi said his dish was kinda lukewarm.
He said it tasted good but wished it had been served a little hotter.
He did enjoy mopping up his stew and the end of my lasagna with the bread.
We want to try their pupus (appetizers) on their evening menu...we'll be back.
