Our (Much too small) kitchen team has just completed two great evenings with a "New Year's Eve kaiseki", the Omisoka 2023, and it's time to get back to work:
The same team that made this great New Year's Eve menu and the previously equally enthusiastically received Christmas menu made possible, now presents a Trip to Japan in 5 courses on our menu of the day.
New sansaro menu 2024
Our regular menu was recently almost a small catalog of the various Sushi types and shapes. As with everything we do, we have put a lot of love into this menu, the dishes, the recipes and the layout - so much so that even the Michelin Guide and others have praised the design of the menu.
In 2024, we are retaining the much-praised style of the menu, but focusing more on seasonal dishes that we can change again and again. This benefits us in terms of preparation and our customers when they eat. Because in recent years, the enthusiasm for special menus has always been by far the greatest. And Japanese cuisine is undoubtedly the most interesting seasonally.
Less is more
By the way, sashimi is always a good intermediate course and unfortunately Top-quality sashimi rare in Munich.
Of course, the thing that has distinguished us the most remains on the menu: the option for you to choose a 5 or 7 sushi omakase by the kitchens.
Basics that you can use to accompany a sushi order, for example, can now always be found at the bottom of our insert sheet, such as the super-popular Nasu Miso Itame, Edamame, our Miso soup made with dashior tempura.
Unfortunately, vegetarians and people with severe gluten sensitivities will have a somewhat more difficult time, as we have had to slightly reduce the selection in this area. Our focus continues to be on an authentic interpretation of Japanese cuisine, where Vegetarianism and allergies are more of a marginal phenomenon are.
Organic & quality still a priority
By the way: even if we still very much organic From now on, we will refrain from specifying this for every product. This is because it means that we have to record the exact numbers of all products during an annual inspection to ensure that quail eggs have not been purchased somewhere that are not organic. But to do this - logically, that's the nature of an inspection - we first have to carry out a cash register analysis to see in which dishes quail eggs were used everywhere and how often they were sold. And then we have to prove via the accounts that we have purchased almost exactly the same number of quail eggs from an organic supplier, who in turn has a valid certificate for this. If you sometimes have to go to the organic market to buy cucumbers, eggs, quail eggs and vegetables for the kitchen, then it quickly becomes a day's work to spontaneously collect these receipts again when the inspector decides to sample this or that product. Understandable, but we are happy to do without this additional administrative work. Nevertheless, you can rest assured that we will continue to purchase the best material and preferably organic, as we have always done since our foundation (!).
Trip to Japan in January
The main point of the reduced basic menu is to make it easier for us to take you along on our recommendations. There are also a few small dishes, dailies & basics that you can order individually.
In addition to popular classics such as Nasu Miso Itame or Crispy Ebi Tempura there are always new things on the menu, like the current one Lotus flower balls in a creamy sauce - Japanese connoisseurs get the real feeling that this dish is typical of the Japanese winter season.
