SN3O3028

Service: Excellent and very friendly.
Facilities: Great cleanliness overall. Superb washroom (mouthwash and toothpicks provided!)!
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive, very good value.
Strong points: Interesting wine list. Great use of local products, especially organic vegetables and Shizuoka-bred meat.

Recently Shizuoka had added lamb to its seemingly inexhaustible supply of meat!
naturally Chef Toru Arima/有馬亨さん at Pissenlit French Restaurant in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, wouldn’t let go away unattended another opportunity to further research in our local products contributing to such a celebrated gastronomy in this country!

Now, taking photographs of such splendid food can become a real challenge unless you barge in with cameras and helpers along!
This view from above should give you an idea how difficult it is to tackle!

It would probably be best to take pictures from all angles to show you the care brought into the presentation!
And when we talk about presentation, we can only admire the appetizing colorful design!

Take off the beautiful red daikon and you will discover the so delicious and tender lamb hidden under!

And under the succulent wine and fond de veau (and others!) sauce you will discover a roulade of the lamb meat which hasn’t lost any of its original shape in spite of a careful and long cooking!

And all the vegetables were local and organic, cooked to a damning precision!

Actually, I recommended the same dish to some very influential friends of mind a few days later!
That lamb will become a regular request!
