It had been about 10 years since I ate at Mangiare Kureha.
It was one of the first restaurants Satoshi and I ate when we moved to Minoo (pre-blog).
I got together with Hiromi the other day and thought it might be nice to re-connect with this place and have lunch there.
It was kinda nice...
We both started with salads, mine was a warm roasted veggie salad, while hers was a caponata type salad.
Our main dish was supposed to be a pasta with pepperoncino (chili garlic oil), sakura ebi (sergia lucens) and spring cabbage.
But what came out was the photo above. A pasta made with pork, cabbage and sauteed in some olive oil & salt.
We thought it was kinda weird because we had envisioned the shrimp, cabbage and a spicy pasta.
After eating some of it though we realized they made a mistake.
We asked about the dish and the cook said that he had made a mistake, he apologized and offered to make us new mains, but we were already quite full, so we said we would eat what he had made.
They gave us a little scoop of ice cream on the house for the mistake.
Our lunch with coffee was 1100 yen. Debating whether to give them another try, probably will.
