A good dinner starts at the bar of Izakaya Gaku. Housemade tofu topped with dashi jelly…
…followed by negitoro tartare with masago, ponzo, scallions, and a single quail egg.
There are oysters and mushrooms…
….and Santa Barbara uni shooters! How decadent.
Seared garlic otoro, hotate, and mackerel.
Hard to pick a favorite ^_^
One scoop green tea ice cream. But save room because…
…we’re going to Liliha Bakery!!! Dessert? Dinner #2? Waffles! Hot from the iron.
Soft butter and maple syrup in every nook and cranny.
Pair it with a butter roll, split, buttered (extra butter!) and grilled. Served up with Liliha’s famous electric jelly.
And of course, a coco puff :)
