2021 has been yet another busy year, and Misaki wishes to thank our dear guests, who have lifted our hearts with your warm support.
Longtime guests will surely look forward to December — this year, it marks Misaki’s 7th Anniversary! As per tradition, we have prepared a sumptious promotion — this time, we’re offering a complimentary serving of Hakushika Sake, renowned for its excellent pairing with sushi.
Please read on for an introduction to each dish, featuring the crowd favourite Puchina Salada (Crystal Ice Plant Salad), as well as our rendition of the traditional Toshikoshi Soba, a dish representing a peaceful farewell to another tumultous year.
Taking centre stage, we have the Amaebi (Sweet Shrimp) topped with Caviar and Fresh Uni (Sea Urchin), on a bed of Negitoro and Ikura (Minced Tuna with Spring Onion; Salmon Roe): this is surely a combination that will light up your tastebuds! Pair off with the Puchina Salada (Crystal Ice Plant Salad) — the uniquely succulent crunch of African ice plant provides a cool, refreshing counterpoint to richer umami flavours.
Another unusual creation this month is the Umaki, Japanese eel wrapped in yakitamago, a special twist on the homely fare of grilled egg omelette. Round off the appetiser with Hamachi Sashimi (Yellowtail), Tako-su (Vinegared Octopus), Pirikara Konnyaku (Spicy Konjac), and finally, a side dish of Kuromame, Kuri Kanroni and Tazukuri (Black Beans, Sweet Chestnuts and Candied Sardines).
That’s a lot to work through! Wash it down with a complimentary glass of fine Hakushika Sake from the renowned Tatsuuma-Honke Brewery, served warm or cold at your choice.
Toshikoshi soba (年越し蕎麦) […] is Japanese traditional noodle bowl dish eaten on New Year’s Eve. This custom lets go of hardship of the year…Wikipedia: Toshikoshi Soba
The highlight of our Anniversary Special is Toshikoshi Soba. This traditional dish, made with buckwheat noodles, inherits the symbolism from the resilient buckwheat plant, which can survive severe conditions as it grows. Yet, soba noodles are easily cut with chopsticks, which represents the passing of difficult times.
Our homely creation is served with Ebi, Oba and Satsumaimo Tempura (Prawn, Perilla Leaf and Sweet Potato Deep-Fried in Batter), and topped off with Okaka (Fragrant Bonito Flakes), Kizami Nori (Crispy Seaweed), Nagaimo (Japanese Mountain Yam), and finally, Onsen Tamago (Poached Hot Spring Egg).
Please pour the broth, which is served separately, boldly into the bowl and enjoy the comforting warmth of this seasonal creation.
