Using the training I received at Izakaya Yuzuki, and utilizing the help of veteran sushi chef Ryo Sakai, we present to you a 5 course plant-based omakase. We'll be using umami rich ingredients and long fermentation to create deep flavors that support the vibrance of fresh spring produce. With this dinner, you'll be able to experience the old-world Japanese techniques of koji-cooking, nuka pickles, or tofu misozuke (tofu cured in miso). Bring some sake or ice-cold Asahi, and come say hi!

Mazemen is ramen, but heavier on noodles and toppings, lighter on the soup. Our version uses buckwheat noodles, nuka-pickled veggies, charred Tokyo negi, soy-pickled shiitakes, koji-cured carrot, tofu misozuke, and tempura wakame. Tableside, we pour over a hot, umami rich dashi, seasoned with a caramelized aromatic tare.
