What we ate

For my birthday, we gathered a small group of intrepid friends/diners to join us for omakase (price fixe chef's choice menu) at Yuzu, our favorite South Bay restaurant.  We've eaten omakase there twice before, and I blogged about one experience.  The omakase selections vary each time.

We were on our 3rd or 4th course (depending on how you count) before I remembered to pull out the camera.  Isn't this Bento delightful?

That is not tamago (egg omelet) on the bottom center.  Can you guess what it really is?  I'll give you a hint.  I have never eaten anything like it before; Bad Dad usually eats it raw.

Roast duck (bottom left) paired with barbeque beef tongue (upper right).

 Sashimi.

No meal at Yuzu is complete without sesame ice cream with black sesame sauce.  They often run out; you are more likely to get some if you ask for it when you make reservations.

BTW, Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans may be interested to learn that Sunnydale High and Buffy's house  are just blocks from Yuzu.  Sewists may want to shop at Momen around the corner in Old Town Torrance.

  4. Happy belated birthday Grace! You live in such an awesome area. The icecream with black sesame sauce; I just could not resist trying that if I saw it! And the Buffy locations; again, I am envious. We are Buffy fans from way way back!
