Friday was our anniversary. We didn't do anything special, but did celebrate with some cakes from Patisserie Hare.
Marron Cognac for Satoshi (left) and espresso for me (right). Funny thing when I told Satoshi that there was cognac in there, he thought I meant konnyaku (devil's tongue jelly).
Anyway, I really enjoyed my cake..it was like tiramisu with lots of caramelized nuts on the outside.
Satoshi gave me this funky carnation as well as some tulips. (thank you!)
Saturday night, we headed back to Menu for dinner.
It started with their antipasto plate...assortment of cold items, highlighted by the tiny choux (cream puff outside) filled with camembert cheese and pumpkin purée
Duck pastrami pepperoncino..spicy but really flavorful.
Yuzu Kosho pasta...super creamy, cheesy with slices of yuzu and pepper.
Oomugi (barley) Pork with a red wine reduction, grainy mustard & mushroom purée. Also there was a little risotto underneath.
The pork was so tender. We enjoyed it most with the wine reduction.
Dessert was a soy milk fruit gratin. The top was brûléed and there was bananas, blueberries and a little orange in there.
Another great meal here and under 8000 yen (tax included) with drinks.
Another great anniversary...thank you Satoshi for putting up with me everyday...love you!
