Last night was Shu’s mother’s birthday, and we went for an amazing meal at a restaurant called Sanukiya in Koenji. We had the tasting course that started with udon and sakura ebi (translucent mini shrimp), then spring vegetables, sashimi, tempura, two types of udon, and beef. Most courses had three or four small bites. Wow! Afterwards, we had delicious cakes that Yoko picked up at Isetan’s basement food market.
