foodie monday

Met up with my friend Hiromi again for some walking, lunching and chatting.

This time we headed to Kamizono in Minoo.

The weather was sunny but oh so humid!

For lunch we both had the kobachi (side dish) set. 6 different kobachi (fried conger eel with ume...okara (soy lees) with green onion...tuna with grated yamaimo (chinese yam)...potato salad with tuna...okra...tataki gobo (crushed burdock with sesame)...miso soup...rice with young ginger

After lunch we were in the mood for something sweet, but our first choice was a bust, so we ended up at Hiro Coffee.

I had the blueberry fromage which was like blueberry cheesecake.

Despite the heat, we both had a great time.

Yum lunch, but if I understood correctly, you EACH ordered this 6-dish set? It looks like a lot in the photo! Cute way of constructing a cheesecake too.

The kobach set looks very healthy. :)

K and S said...

Rowena, the shot looks like a lot from above, but like that okra, it was served in a demi-tasse and not even half full.

Thanks Obachan, my husband and I really enjoy eating here.

Take care you two.

K said...

The food looks great! I love being able to have multiple small dishes in one meal.

Beautiful roses! And you can send some of your rain my way :)

K and S said...

I like this type K, but kaiseki usually freaks me out, because there is too many things to eat :p

Will do Lizzy :)

Take care you two.

K and S said...
