  • Got the $65 per person prix fixe duck dinner that comes with one duck, 4 small dishes, 2 main dishes, and a choice or a rice dish or side. Also came with fried fish skin (tastes better than it sounds) and 6 shot glasses, each filled with a pickled vegetable or fruit. Before the duck arrived, they also gave us shots of duck broth
  • Standout sides and mains: uni noodle salad, pork ‘toro’ with Korean rice cakes, oxtail dumplings, wagyu beef, sauteed pea shoots
  • I was not a fan of duck at all but I must have had bad duck in the past. No complaints here
  • After I had two pieces of duck I was starting to get full, but the food kept coming! It’s a good idea to get some vegetable sides or mains. You will fell sweet relief the further you get into the meal
  • We were serviced by aging hipsters and was thus meh. They pronounced things totally wrong with such confidence — so highly irritating
