Aaron and I had the super fancy omakase at Nobu tonight. Since I generally try not to touch my phone at nice meals, I joked that I needed to get all mystery Michelin reviewer and remember every detail of everything we ate so I could write about it later.
I am low on details, but I made myself remember this: Toro sashimi topped with caviar and 24 karat gold flakes. There was also a sauce and some micro greens, but I don’t remember those details because, um, toro plus caviar plus 24 karat gold flakes.
I also made myself remember “Yamamomo”, which is an adorable name for the Japanese Mountain Peach.
Finally, a couple #TILs:
1. There are different grades of Wagyu.
2. Grade A5 melts in your mouth… like ice cream. Warm beefy ice cream.
