Kin No Uma

March 23, 2011

A bit off the beaten track, but that makes Kin No Uma ideal for an idyllic weekday dinner, especially for customers who want the whole restaurant to themselves.

Can't really complain about the sashimi; all the raw fish & prawns tasted fairly fresh, even though the selection was rather run-of-the-mill.

Steamed rice with green tea soup & grilled spicy cod roe. Rustic fare; turned into porridge-like comfort food, once we poured the piping-hot broth fully into the bowl.

Yosenabe, a hot pot overflowing with seafood & veggies. Wholesome, stomach-warming soup. A fitting finish to a relatively healthy gastronomic expedition.

Nihon Sakari sake. Not exactly a show-stopper, but it'll do.

Yep, for better or worse, it's so quiet here, customers could engage in an entire conversation by simply whispering to each other.
