With uni butter and baby beets. $15 Nombe, San Francisco
Omg, this was such a rich dish! And perhaps, not in a good way. The uni butter, while delicious, was SO heavy. There’s not a lot of it on the plate, but it completely overpowered everything else. To be fair the beets were delicious and the scallops were cooked well.
This dinner was very disappointing. The service was horrendous and the timing between dishes was atrocious! The food was just ok overall and not really worth the price. I don’t think I’ll go back.
It was very dark in the restaurant and halfway through, they decided to turn the lights even lower. Therefore, I wasn’t able to photograph everything but here are the remaining pics I was able to snap before it the darkness made it impossible to take more.
Grilled Kurobuta pork belly, mizuna, jicama, yuzo kosho dressing. $10
This was the best dish of the night (although it’s very hard to see, lol). The meat was tender, flavorful and perfectly cooked. I also loved the mizuna salad on the side!
Persimmon cosmo shochu cocktail. $5 happy hour
This was ok. I’m glad it was discounted for happy hour otherwise I would have been more disappointed.
Nipponito – mint, lime, rice shochu. $8
