Yuu Japanese Tapas

April 13, 2014

#A21 Tender beef cubes served hot on iron plate - 2+

J's comment > beef cubes very tender as advertised and tasty w beef jus; piping hot (check out the steam!) on the iron plate

#HP2 Milk pumpkin chicken hot pot - 2

J's comment > not bad; broth very creamy but not heavy; actual pumpkin used and pumpkin flavor was quite distinct; chicken was unfortunately way too overcooked (I suspect the chicken was cooked before depositing into the broth); like all other hot items served, the broth was present at a rolling boil and remained HOT until the fire died and then some; 

#RM7 Japanese curry udon w deep fried prawn - 2

J's comment > not bad; another really hot dish; loved the fact that the udon noodles were all cut up to bit sized pieces, as opposed to the usual so-long-the-noodle-will-splatter-whatever-you-are-wearing; prawn fried really well, very crisp but prawn not overcooked on the inside; broth on the thin side, it's no Shibuyatei, but the supporting ingredients are better here.

#A13 Deep fried boneless chicken - 2

J's comment > not bad, esp w the mayo on the side, but slightly dry towards the edges; I expected a bit of a crunch, however slight, when ingredients get deep fried - no such luck w this dish; served really hot though

Panna Cotta - 2+

J's comment > excellent texture; really soft and jiggly, yet retains its shape when you 'pat' it w your spoon

Hot purple sweet potato milk - 2+

J's comment > really creamy w the slightest hint of chunkiness in the drink, suggesting that actual sweet potato was used; flavor-wise, very subtle as expected, but delish - this would be best consumed on its own, or w other foods that aren't so strong-tasting; staff confirmed that the restaurant uses real ingredients, ie no artifical powder in any of their drinks.

#H3 Azuki bean macha latte - 2+

J's comment > as mentioned above, real ingredients only; you can totally taste the real matcha powder used in the making of this drink; creamy but a disappointing set back was that the items didn't really mesh together (you can see the beans all the way at the bottom, and the separation of the foam at the top from the actual drink); nonetheless, tasty
