Fresh figs, big ebi tempura and others at Suju
A dinner at Suju. Also our first time after having had lunch here twice.
They had fresh figs with goma sauce on their seasonal menu. These were not bad but I lament over the fact that we have somehow never encountered ones that were as awesome as those that we once had at Valentino's.
There was gyu suji on the seasonal too. Braised beef tendons in dashi with radish. The beef was really tender than it almost fell apart when it was picked up. The broth inherited that beefy flavour from the cow. Delicious stuff.
Their fried pumpkin tempura was creamy and sweet.
We ordered their ooebi tempura which also came with tempura-ed nasu and maitake mushrooms. The prawns were huge and meaty. These bugs probably had more flesh than most crayfish we've encountered.
