We decide to order two things to share and two to eat by ourselves. My friend picks the Tuna Sashimi rice which is a beautiful dish of warm rice below generous mound of tuna cubes, topped off with a drizzle of mayonnaise and tobiko. The tuna is quite fresh and beautifully coloured. My previous experiences with sashimi rice dishes have often involved some interesting sauces, so I was surprised at the simpleness of this one. Nevertheless, it is quite a tasty and satisfying dish, if a little less exciting than anticipated.
Baked eel with rice (half portion)
Being a sucker for grilled eel, I order the baked eel with rice, which is consists of pieces of grilled eel and cheese sauce with a layer of melted cheese on top, presented nicely on a hot plate. Whilst I find the flavour combination interesting, the saltiness cheese sauce overpowers the simpler tastes of the grilled eel. The sauce is deliciously tasty though, and I don't mind eating it (especially with the crispy baked cheese) separately to the eel.
We ordered the squid ink pizza out of interest- I've never had squid ink before, so I was quite excited to taste it for the first time. The squid ink is more liquid-y than the usual pizza sauces, and along with the fact that the pizza is cut into large quarters, makes this pizza pretty messy to eat. I was disappointed to find that the squid ink had very little taste and that the base was not quite as crispy as I would have liked. Nevertheless, it was a fun and exciting dish I enjoyed eating and would not hesitate to order it again!
