Several months ago, they removed a number of items on the regular menu. Now the variety looks quite a bit smaller. But you ordered nicely.
This place is the Northern California version of Aburiya Raku, also in terms of satisfaction level, but quite different.
Fresh unagi is awesome, I’m guessing those are sansho berries next to the wasabi. Good stuff.
Their yaki onigiri is probably the best in all of SF Bay Area. They properly season their rice before grilling (and it’s not all regular cooked rice either). It’s perfect with an order of pickles, or some of the other grilled items.
Maybe nothing interesting on offer for dessert that night?
Some of what I’ve enjoyed in the past (availability subject to season/specials)
Roasted tea ice cream (houjicha), roasted (charcoal grilled) eggplant brulee, soba yu pudding or panna cotta, sake lees pudding/panna cotta, soba cha pudding or panna cotta, sakura ice cream, hatcho miso ice cream, mochi with corn sauce, brown rice (genmai) pudding, their house made plum wine/umeshu, black pepper panna cotta,
