A friend who is a regular at yakitori-ya invited a bunch of us to try Toshi-san’s off-menu, special order duck shabu shabu. It was a super delicious and elegant meal. Please don’t inquire about the price, if interested, just call yakitori-ya. I say this only because I have no idea (and do not want to find out) if we got a special reduced price due to my friends “regular” status or, possibly, an inflated price, because he is a baller
When we arrived there was a beautiful plate of veg, noodle, tofu, tofu skin/mochi “purses”
Gorgeous crock-ware filled with the shabu broth
Platters of thinly sliced duck (that must be a lot of careful knife workwork!)
The meal ended with an amazing Zōsui (雑炊) of the shabu broth. Great fun super-tasting evening.
