Both the food and drinks were delicious ♡

I especially like the Rikyu-style matsutake mushrooms and millet gluten, the fresh spring rolls of ayu with roe, the pork shoulder loin, and the grilled warabi mochi and soybean flour milk ice cream ♡

The pork shoulder loin had a beautiful cross-section and was enveloped in the smoky aroma of Kyoto bancha, making it perhaps the best meat dish I've ever had.

It was so delicious ♡♡♡

It's not classic Japanese cuisine, but has an Asian flavor, but that makes it even more delicious.

The host and the staff were kind, and the food and drinks were delicious and I was happy.

I live in Nagoya, but I'm glad I visited.

Thank you for the meal.


It has become my favorite shop!
Because Japanese food is on the backbone
No matter how you design it, it will taste elegant.
It was also fun talking with the shop staff.


Translated from Japanese:

The restaurant has a modern atmosphere, which is unusual for someone who trained in the Gion Sasaki family, and the interior is a mix of Japanese and Western styles, and the dishes use rice noodles and spices. Innovative Japanese cuisine with a little Asian flavor...
