Shingo and Ai’s little dude Rei is a picky eater and didn’t make it out. So this is the best I got. We ate at an izakaya place called Gomaya, which translates to something like sesame seed shop. You guessed it, that’s the theme, sesame. Michelle may be vegan, but somehow she’s getting through this trip unscathed, yet, it seems like it’s all about veggies. Tomato, cucumber, fava beans, tofu, soba, and stuff like that. The occasional rice ball, and it seems to be working. I’m sort of glad, I’m able to explain what a vegan means in Japan. You can say, no fish, no eggs, no this or that, but until you say, no dashi (which is from bonito fish), then they trip out.
That’s Miss Premium Yuko who helps out Ai on the weekend. In front is a veggie medley, cooked simple and it was good. The egg behind it was amazing, my blood orange juice of course great, behind the OJ was the sesame tofu which was almost dessert like. Impressive. I’ve had it before, and don’t remember it being as sweet. It was powdered with sesame. I’d suggest this to anyone who’s into tofu. To the right is gobo, flattened and seasoned like a chip.
