sepporai

IMG_2572 Before I get to today's post, I want to apologize if I'm overloading your RSS feeds, long story short, I deleted something on Flickr and am trying to put the photos I had on many posts back....sorry!

...The other Saturday, we tried this place that uses Kyoto veggies called Sepporai.

You could choose from prix fixe menus or ala carte. We chose to go ala carte.

They start you off with an amuse bouche that they charge you about 300 yen for...

We also ordered a plate with 3 different kinds of sashimi on it. THAT was a rip-off.

Next came this...daikon topped with nikumiso and cheese. The daikon takes on the flavors of the cheese and nikumiso. Nikumiso is meat, usually pork, sauteed with miso and other seasonings. It is a nice topping for rice or in musubi.

IMG_2573 We also ordered rolled cabbage. In Japan, most people serve theirs in a consomme soup. This one was really tender.

IMG_2575 Next came a piece of buri and daikon. Buri (amberjack) is a popular fish during the winter.

This was tasty.

kamigamo tomato & fu pizza #dinner #osaka #japan And lastly, we ordered this tomato & fu (wheat gluten) pizza.

This was different, but we liked how the wheat gluten got really crispy as the "crust".

A lot of different foods but all delicious. We'll be back.

Too bad about the first two, but everything else after that looks delish. Daikon and cheese sounds interesting.

I feel your angst about the RSS....I'm going through almost the same thing in letting the old stuff go online, but atleast I know all of the links are up-to-date and tags all in place!

Rowena, I'm checking out old tags and links too. If only the spammers would stop...

Take care.

Mmm...my hubs and I love Amberjack. We ordered a grilled amberjack collar once at a Japanese restaurant in Canada....TO DIE FOR!! Unfortunately I don't see Amberjack on the menu much at most places here in the states.

hmm I wonder why it isn't too popular in the States, Kim, Happy Holidays!

Take care.
