Here's a little peak into the Japanese inspired dinner I hosted.

Most of food by me. Outsourced a bunch of the grunt work (yay minions. hehehe).
IfUCare handled the ten zaru soba.

Most photos by Ronin (watermarked).
Other photos by random friends.




Kumamoto oysters, mignonette, horseradish





Albacore tuna tataki. Homemade pozu. Kaiware, shredded carrot and daikon.


Another view





Slicing some tuna with my rarely touched Yoshikane 240mm
^
Up for sale
*shameless plug*





A play on combining various Japanese ingredients.
- Ajitsuke tamago (the soft-boiled marinated egg you get on ramen)
- Edamame puree
- A reduction of the braising liquid from my aka miso tonkotsu char siu
- Shichimi to finish (the 7-spice chili powder condiment commonly offered with udon)
Served on toasted Chinese egg bread.






Royal miyagi oysters, scratchmade shallot aioli
This is how I do motoyaki.





Maguro sashimi, sliced.
Served over shredded daikon and shiso leaf
You just don't mess with a good thing.






Caesar salad, a very non-Japanese offering mid-meal.
Dressing from scratch (but I didn't need to tell you that did I?)
Anchovies of course, bacon, garlic croutons, shaved parmigiano reggiano. Did you know this is actually Mexican? --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesar_salad





海老 天麩羅 ざる 蕎麦, 茶 蕎麦
(Ebi tempura zaru soba, green tea soba)served with
大根おろし, 麺汁, きざみ海苔

(Grated daikon, mentsuyu dipping sauce, shredded nori)





Live uni
Green and red varieties






Boom. Found gold.
In the food porn business, this is what we call the "money shot".





Urchin shell, beautiful pattern





Uni





Red uni, toasted nori





Suntory Hibiki 21
A fantastic pairing for the uni.





- Sake kasu (the rice mash leftover from brewing sake)
- Shiro miso (white miso, a sweeter milder version)






銀鱈 の 粕漬け (gindara no kasuzuke).
Sablefish, sake, kasu, shiro miso.






銀鱈 の 粕漬け (gindara no kasuzuke), grilling over wood embers.





銀鱈 の 粕漬け (gindara no kasuzuke).
Sablefish, sake, kasu, shiro miso.
- Slaw with honey and rice wine vinaigrette.
- Silgochu on rice.

Where did you get that 21 year Hibiki?! I finished my bottle that I got from Japan duty-free so fast ... it's one of my favourite!

The Hibiki was from Japan too.
My friend got it as a gift and brought it over to share.

Don't you have access to the liquor importers?
I'm sure there's a market for it here, let me know if you can ever bring some in.

Nope, stupid archaic Canadian liquor laws. Can't import them in if the government doesn't allow it.
I've been trying to bring in YEBISU beer line for YEARS. No such luck. The liquor board has all but ignored me completely now lol...

Soto Ayam
Indonesian chicken soup.
Similar spices to Indonesian curry, but brighter and more licorice-like flavors from the anise, heavy use of tumeric and Chinese celery.
I grew up with this as a special treat from my eldest aunt.





Apple Galette
Apples, puff pastry, ice cream. What's not to like?

Culverin you posted the the pork chop rice on Post #164. Deja Vu. Even the commentary is almost the same lol.

But to answer your question, we probably won't find better anywhere. Who's using Kurobuta and Fresh Mozz?!
