How to Enjoy..

Since they took the trouble to print this guide, I thought it would be good to share this information in case any of you decide to go and try this place out but at that time is too hungry to read the guide. :)

The full guide

Starter - Oroshi - white radish or daikon that was grated and served cold as an appetizer to kick start the digestive system.

Pickels to make you eat more refillable rice

Raw shredded cabbage to balance the oily taste

Mix your own sauce using rock salt, sweet sauce or spicy sauce or both sweet and spicy sauce together.

Grind your own roasted sesame seeds into the sauce or sprinkle them on your rice or pork fillet for extra fragrance.

Finished off with hot Japanese roasted barley tea on the house.

This is a very flavourful miso soup

This dark miso sauce is similar to yong tau fu brown sauce but with a deeper fragrance. Enjoy!

  3. Good sharing, you are right.. I think (most) people will just skip it and pounce on the food, haha.. Unless waiting for food, got some time, then ok, can read (that's if they are not bz playing with their hp or checking out their FB/blog), hehe..

    1. eg: like what I thought about that oroshi as dipping for the tonkatsu.. so I was wrong!! ooopsss, that's actually more of tempura yeah?? now I remember we were given sauce for the katsu itself, thicker and more gluey ones, not those tempura type, hehe!!
