Classy Japanese Food

Monday, June 26th, 2006

Last week, the corporation I work for had their annual general party, and as usual, we had it in a big hotel downtown Sendai. What kind of food do they serve in classy hotels in Japan? Here is what we had, and needless to say, it was all excellent!


The menu


Sea urchin roe and wakame (probably) mixed with kelp gelatine


Pike eel soup, with peony, egg bonnets and ume


Raw tuna, boiled bream and raw shrimp


Butter roasted rock lobster with herb sauce


Thin and golden pieces of shark fin soup with a caramel-like color


Champagne granité (It’s like a crushed champagne popsicle)


Roasted filet of Japanese beef with madeira and sake sauce


Salad of seasonal veggies


Specially made assorted desserts


Coffee


Not to mention the open bar, with a selection of beer, wine, Japanese sake, shouchuu, whiskey and soft drinks. Aaaah, life is good (^-^)
