We had a farewell party for a colleague who’s going back to Singapore in August. In Japan, Italian food is common, affordable and everyone loves it but French food is usually the choice for a special event. It’s more expensive so people have it less often.
Everyone got the 4-course steak set but 尾野 (Ono) is known for its seafood so naturally, I opted for fish because I do love fish a lot. Also, it’s cheaper than steak. However, it’s a 3-course meal. Then again, I ended up feeling just right while everyone else was struggling to finish their dessert.
The fish was great. Having been living like pauper, I don’t get fresh fish often (other than sashimi). The fish was really soft and tasty. It was served on a pan-fried rice dumpling which crumbled a little with the sauce but was still crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
Finally, the dessert which was an assortment of (clockwise) pudding, mousse, tart and sherbet. Surprisingly, the mousse was just the right amount of sweetness and texture. I don’t usually fancy cream or mousse, you get the idea but this was one just right.
Do note that the ingredients used are seasonal!
