Today I was able to meet my dear husband for lunch! That’s rare for a weekday, to say the least. Where did we head? To our favorite Tokyo restaurant – Nuun in Akabanebashi! Nuun is very close to Tokyo Tower, and has absolutely fabulously delicious seasonal food that can only be described as exquisitely creative.
Today, we both got the Tofu Cutlet lunch plate, because it looked so good!
Here it is, in all it’s glory… a fried tofu cutlet with two dipping sauces (one daikon, onion, and garlic; the other was very similar to tonkatsu sauce), lightly battered and fried okra, fresh mizuna salad, cold marinated mushrooms, and cold marinated summer squash. Divine.
This came with our lunch set as well: brown rice and a very nice vegetable soup. The broth was a clear broth that tasted strongly of a mixture of vegetables, and there were chunks of squashes, cabbage, and carrots… other stuff, too, but I can’t be sure of what! The rice was cooked to perfection and the simple taste of the soup really complemented the rest of the meal.
And here is our dessert… a rich, melt-in-your-mouth panna cotta with chocolate sauce and iced coffee. Aaah… so delicious!!
UPDATE: NUUN HAS CLOSED!!
