En is a restaurant that I have been wanting to try for a while now. It always sounded great but it was WAY over on the west side, not usually where you find the authentic Japanese restos... so I never made much effort to try it. My girl Momo-chan wanted to take me there as a treat so of course I was SO excited to try it! It was awesome. We had some lovely starters Kyoto-style... including a wonderful daikon-grilled buya dish and hijiki salad.. all so yummy. The highlight however was the agedashi-dofu... they do this crazy... almost "wrong" (but so right) version of agedashi-dofu... basically fried tofu... one white tofu and one black sesame tofu, but oosing with soft creamy tofu on the inside. It's more of a dessert really. It's way TOO good. We also tried the black miso cod, also ridiculously yummy and some dessert. It was kind of an over-indulgent dinner but wonderful! I want to go back and try their tasting menu!

  1. i fking love that place. there's a bunch of them in tokyo, too, but they seem to be far less theatrical, more of a neighbourhood dining thing.
