I deliberated between the Negekomi Don and Bara Chirashi Don but on the waitress' recommendation, decided on the Fisherman's Nagekomi Don.
Once seated, we were immediately served hot barley rice tea.
Orders were taken and swiftly followed by chopsticks and a small side salad with fragrant sesame oil.
It wasn't long before the orders came.
It seems I don't remember having any hotate nor negi maguro.
Not like I noticed when I was there. Oh yum.
And this looked just like a normal pork katsudon. Look at the thick cuts topped generously with the egg and onion mixture. I didn't try this but I saw the bottom of the bowl pretty darn clearly at the end of our meal. That speaks volumes enough. :)
And the seaweed paste? It's a certain type of umami that goes well with everything. Oh how I had to ration this. I didn't dare ask for seconds.
Tea was refilled on sight. And things were cleared without us having to ask.
And just as we thought we were done with lunch,
why not more tea and with that, a deliciously creamy pudding/ mousse?
This definitely was not the chocolate flavoured mousse that many blogs have documented.
But in any case, this was par excellence ending lunch on the sweetest high.
