Friday night I met with a friend from grad school, Yogi-chan, at my favorite Kyoto-style restaurant in Nakameguro, Kokoraya. I have gone there several times, and each time the food and mood are so good I completely forget to take pictures... but not this time!
I always order the kabu oden with white miso, and we tried the really interesting yamaimo and tofu gratin, which was spiced with sanshou. But, of course, dessert and drinks were the piece de resistance: Sake infused 'rare cheese mousse' and ginger infused chuhai.
Yogi-chan also kindly brought me wonderful onsen salts, which I cannot wait to try out. What a nice relaxing day... you can feel spring in the air, and the plum trees are starting to bloom!
