French Gastronomy: Sauteed Oyster on Cauliflower Flan at Pissenlit in Shizuoka City!

SN3O3272

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.

Chef Toru Arima/有馬亨さん at Pissenlit French Restaurant in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, came up with a new recipe marrying land and sea!
Cauliflower and oyster!

SN3O3281

The French flan is made with two locally grown cauliflowers, yellow and green!
Unfortunately only some of the green was left for a photograph!

SN3O3273

The very large oyster is of a japanese variety called “Akou/赤穂” and was sauteed/seared and rolled into a mild garam masala sauce before being served astride a French flan and decorated with organic thin leeks/menegi/芽葱..

SN3O3274

The picture above shows the flan once the oyster has been put aside.

SN3O3275

the whole dish was in fact seasoned with the same mild garam masala sauce for a succulent West-East marriage!

SN3O3276

The French flan was made with two kinds of cauliflower as indicated above with the addition of pieces of the same kind of oyster!

Again when health and flavors combine for a gastronomic experience!
