Kamo ju from Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke


Did anyone notice that Keisuke has quietly changed the name of the shop to simply Kamo Soba instead of the older longer name? Anyways, this was the kamo ju - the last item and also the most expensive one that I wanted to try from Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke (there's the older longer name!). Understandably, this could be perceived as a sort of Japanese duck rice which was not so much different from the local variety except for the ingredients and preparation method. Sliced duck, soup and rice.

Those sliced ducks were okay. Tender, chewy and I suppose pretty passable. I'm pretty sure that was where most of the cost of this set came from. Underneath those duck was a layer of rice with minced meat packing some wasabi. That wasabi was a nice touch. What I found myself liking was the soup that was packed with loads of gamey duck flavour. If not for anything else, Kamo Soba did a ducking good job out of their broth.
