Snapshots from dinner at Jewel Bako in the East Village where the $65 sushi omakase is an excellent deal. I counted 17 pieces of sushi in total…
…including this ridiculous Uni Cup. Rice at the bottom, and then five tongues piled one atop another with a grilled scallop tucked in on the side. The top layer of uni is quickly brûléed with a blowtorch, making it all smokey and the slightest bit crisp. Clearly,
Crispy Tuna and Ikura, Miso Soup, Akami, and Kamasu
Scottish Salmon, Tasmanian King Salmon, Kiramasa, and Kisu.
Nammerou, Chutoro, Otoro, then the Uni Cup, and Ikura.
Shima Aji, Nama Dako, Kinmedai, and Unagi.
Accidentally left out the Mirugai which came between Shima Aji and Nama Dako. So many to keep track of…
Matcha ice cream sandwiches for dessert ^_^
Ok, hope you all are having a good weekend!
