Went to annual game dinner at Daniel. Not many showed. The charcuterie was the best part. Pithivier of grouse, brioche something or other with black truffle, pheasant terrine, hare with foie gras, some pâté I cannot remember, mosaic of elk with daikon and foie gras, lots of pickled porcini. Then wood pigeon in a lentil veloute, venison with huckleberry, hare with salsify and sweet potato "shepard's pie". Lots of really awesome and delicious stuff.

Dinner at Kitsune Izakaya. Some "Japanese-inspired" restaurant that receives good press. We chose several entrées. Some pictures tilted, not sure why.


Praline from young pig, french bean salad and soy-ginger-orange marinade

This was actually the best dish. I wouldn't really associate it with Japanese but the flavors were balanced and it tastes pretty good.

Sweet-sour marinated salmon, wakame-hijiki salad

The salmon tasted good, but not special. The salad was far too sour.

Miso-marinated mackerel, kale/sesame salad

Altogether it was pretty good, nice flavors (pretty good combination for Hamburg). The kale salad alone was too sweet and sesame-y. The mackerel not too exciting.

Miso soup

Fine. A little too strong for my taste.

Boar sausage, quince-pear-ginger chutney

The sausage tasted very good. But it was a little cold (maybe that was because there's just one guy doing everything in the kitchen and they decided to serve everything at once, see picture one). The chutney not so much, too extreme flavors for me.

"broiled" tofu

red = shiromiso with lavender and dried apricotes. Way too sweet.
green = akamiso with basil and ginger. Tasted ok. Wouldn't order again.

So yeah, overall we weren't very happy. It was worth a try, but the Northern German-Japanese (at least that's what it might be) fusion doesn't work out too well. Most dishes were too sweet or too sour, or both.

Lunch at Matsumi.



Simple, but much more to our liking. Much more in balance (the entrée -- some sort of pickled kohlrabi or maybe daikon and some chicken thingy, for example).

Woooow this looks delicious! I am in love with Japanese food just as I am in Japanese whisky. Haven't been in love with a Japanese women yet :P

Based on the assumption that it would not necessarily be a permanent thing, I could take a chance :P

 

You know why right?
