Last night, having a long break in the evening and being ravenous, I just couldn’t wait until dinner at home. So, I veisited my favourite izakaya, namely Yasaitei, where I knew I could have a quick and delicious fix without worrying about my wasitline!
In Japan it is usual to be served a small snack (which will be charged at a nominal but reasonable price) with the first drink order.
For a closer view!
The snack was “yuba”/tofu sheets with uni/sea urchin (vegans or vegetarians only need to point out their priorities and they will be served only according to them, so no worries!) and Shizuoka wasabi (and slices of radish).
With a little soy sauce,so simple but so refined at the same time!
The vegetables were basically the same as my last visit, which I don’t mind at all, but the plate and the presentation were different, which I appreciate no end!:
-Myoga/myoga ginger shoots
-Cucumber (so crispy!)
-Shiso on a bed of thinly cut onions.
For a side view!
Served with sesame oil, miso and salt seasoning and a glass of Doman Shochu by Hamamatsi-Tenjigura Brewery, perfect!
