Last Friday, I finally kicked myself into visiting my favourite Japanese Cuisine Restaurant after a long absence, namely Tomii. As I had a couple of commitments later in the evening I opted for one of their renown sashimi sets.
As I had come early enough, I had all freedom to take a couple of pics of the chef at work!
As shown on above picture, the sashimi set I was served consisted of:
Makogarei/Halibut Variety (on a shiso leaf), Hamo/lightly boiled pike conger eel (decorated with shiso flowers, Rowena!), Akami/lean tuna, Madai/seabream, Uni/Sea Urchin and Aka Ika/red cuttlefish.
I was still a bit hungry and espied the Gyuusashi/Raw beef on the menu!
I just could not resist it!
Served with two small plates of soy sauce, some grated ginger, grated garlic and thinly chopped thin leeks, a pure delice!
Shizuoka City, Aoi Ku, Tokiwa-cho, 1-2-7, Tomii Bldg, 1F

You are most welcome!
I cannot believe the dish,but now I feel interesting!
Tomii became my favorite Japanise style restaurant thanks to you!
Thank you Robert!
Nothing to worry about!
They do need water in the morning, though.
The Japanese leave them in the sun all day, but the ambient atmosphere is very humid, so do not be afraid of watering the soil (no water directly on the leaves or they’ll burn!) regularly.
Incidentally, they started selling baby shiso leaves here in Shizuoka, that is, leaves that have just come out and can be eaten in salads like cress!
I’m taking notes! I’m taking notes!
My green shiso plant is looking very good, so much so that at this point I am reluctant to use any of the leaves until the plant is BIGGER. One odd thing I notice about the shiso is that it seems to go to “sleep” in the evening? By this I mean that during the day, the leaves look more alert and lively. When dusk falls, they seem to droop a bit, as if wanting to go to sleep. I know that it isn’t for being in too much sun or lack of water. They get partial sun/shade and I keep the soil damp, not overly wet.
Haver you ever heard of sleepy shiso leaves? I’m not worried, but I think it’s kind of cute!
