So we worked our way through the menu and I didn't take pictures of everything.
The deep fried sweetcorn fritter things were as delicious as I remember especially with the green salt. Inside it gets a bit soft and gooey. Yum!
The kingfish sashimi was the best though with sweet caramelised onions and sliced thick enough. Delicious!
Another of dishes I enjoyed was the rice hotpot with mushrooms and a runny egg.
Stef thought the rice was still a bit hard but I enjoyed it and loved the deep savoury flavours that come through.
We also enjoyed a plate of simply grilled mushrooms with soy sauce. The grilled Korobuta pork was also tasty and we wish we had tried the ocean trout and the Wagyu but sadly we can't have everything!
The applie millefeulle was a tower of sweet apple sorbet drizzled with a honey syrup and some freeze dried berries and apple running through. I thought the apple was a little synthetic and sweet but enjoyed the icy smooth texture.
I'd forgotten how good certain dishes at Izakaya Den can be so it was good to be able to be reminded of this. Stef and I sat at our little bench at the kitchen bar for a good two hours or so and never felt rushed or pressure to leave in spite of the fact that it got busier. Service was efficient and friendly enough.
