Get Your Don On!

Thursday evenings always makes me want to get my don on. Cha-An is an amazing Japanese teahouse located on 9th street on the second floor. It is a beautiful little haven designed in true traditional Japanese style. I love escaping the city, and pretending I'm in Japan, for some amazing authentic Japanese desserts and tea... or in this entry's case, a light snack or an early dinner. The AMAZING tuna don "setto" is only available from 2-6pm on Thursdays. So cut out of work early to catch an early dinner here. The lightly seared tuna over rice is drizzled with a lovely ponzu sauce and it's accompanied by two smaller sides. Also their matcha milk makes for a lovely dessert.
