Saturday, we had some errands to run, so we headed to Umeda.
We had actually thought we could try Ice Monster, the Taiwanese shave ice place, but the lines were still krazy. Guess we'll need to wait until winter...
Lunch was at Nurukan Sato, a place specializing in different sake (rice wine).
I ordered their wagyu hitsumabushi...1800 yen (plus tax).
When I think of hitsumabushi I usually of unagi (eel), but these days, they use the term loosely to mean that they give you some dashi (soup) to enjoy it something similar to "ochazuke".
I don't know if the way the meat was cut made it tough or the way they cooked it, but I've had way more tender wagyu before.
Satoshi went with the shrimp and crab tempura donburi...1500 yen (plus tax).
He enjoyed this, lots of shrimp, lots of crab legs and some veggie tempura.
They also gave us mini beers to enjoy with our meal.
My set came with a dish of yuzu sorbet. Great palate cleanser and I also gave half to Satoshi.
It was a great lunch. We'll be back to try other items on their menu.
