The cabbage was the first to be served. I heard that the cabbages were stored in the freezer and were sliced while still frozen. This is probably why the sweetness and freshness of the cabbages were retained. Since it's free flow, we did not hesitate to ask for top ups. It tasted really good. Tried the sesame sauce but didn't quite like it. I still like the yuzu vinegar sauce better.

Each of us are given a small bowl of sesame seeds where we are suppose to grind down. I remembered that I used to do that in another Japanese restaurant that sells ramen. This is definitely the first time I had to grind my own sesame for rice. Quite interesting though.

I ordered the tenderloin katsu set. The breaded pork tenderloin cutlet is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Tasted great even after leaving in the open for a while. ($22)

The green tea ice cream comes with the set. It has strong green tea taste and very smooth.

The entire set consists of sesame seed, rice, pork cutlet, pickled radish, refillable cabbage, refillable miso soup, refillable green tea (hot or cold) and one scoop of green tea ice cream.

Great service and would definitely visit again!!
