And the last dinner for 2013 was......

Ootoya, hon maguro akami

Ootoya, fried oysters

Ootoya, scallop rice

Ootoya, scallop rice

We went the dependable route instead of some place that had a New Year menu. Ootoya it was. Even as we placed our orders, I was scanning the update on the Last Dinner of 2013 by Burnt Ends which looked enticing indeed. Well, it's $200 per person so......

This was definitely good in the comforting sense and much less expensive. I picked apart a couple of the seasonal sets that they were offering and grabbed the fried oysters a la carte and discarded the soup from the steamed scallops on rice set. So this mix and match landed a shell fish teishoku dinner along with starters of blue fin tuna sashimi. This time round, the fried oysters were noticeably much better than when I last had them. They weren't as large as I was imagining but were briny and juicy. Couldn't complain on how this year has been wrapped up.
