Takayama--Dinner (the banquet)

With the spoils of our sake crawl fully metabolised, we were ready for dinner. And what a dinner it turned out to be...

Once again our beautiful lacquered trays began modestly.

Sashimi bowl which included raw botanebi prawns (we saw these at the Tsukiji fish markets), tuna, seaweed and tamago rolled egg omelette.

Beautifully steamed, tender and juicy pork and mushroom dumplings.

A delicate sashimi salmon rose and lightly vinegared salad.

Dressed in traditional yukata

Our charming and efficient hosts kept plying us with more food...

Tonight's hotpot was marbled beef with mushrooms sizzled for a few minutes

Yes by now the lacquer tray was jam-packed with goodies, treats and delectable delights

Tempura which was wonderfully light. crispy and always beautifully presented. Tonight's tempura included tender octopus and an intricate bundle of soba noodles which were shaped into a springroll-type bundle and battered. Oiishi desu yo!

Seasoned rice, tasty and delicious.
Owww... my stomach hurts....

Clear palate-cleansing soup with a beautifully sculpted prawn.

I miss this place.

More photos to come...

    Uhm, what are you doing next holidays? Let's go do lunch there! I wouldn't mind the marbled beef with mushrooms.

    Drooling... How will I get through today?

    Well done.
