Once again, our story begins on a gorgeous day in southern Chiba. Overdue for some good old catching up, a few friends and I decided to get together for lunch. I had gone to this amazing restaurant in Minamiboso's Shirahama area over Golden Week, but the weather had been incredibly depressing, so I needed to go back on a sunny day. This lunch was the perfect opportunity for my rematch!
|I kinda wanna ride this van...|
|From the parking lot, take a stroll up the hill...at the top, you'll find this tiny little structure.|
|Odori Kitchen! and the lovely Liz.|
|A perfect day with the perfect company~!|
After confusing our very nice, friendly waiter, we put in our orders! For lunch, you can choose from the A or B sets. They are exactly the same in that they come with appetizers, main dish, and drink...but then, B set comes with dessert.
And so I present...food pic spam!!
(I don't actually know my food names so I copied them from Liz's post...all I know is that everything was amazingly delicious!)
Anyway, on to the main dishes...
|I chose the bamboo shoot & prosciutto risotta. Simple but the textures of each ingredient matched perfectly!|
|Bacon and green beans (string beans, sugar snap peas, and soramame) spaghetti. |
It may sound easy enough, but it was sheer genius.
|Gorgonzola fusilli. Feeling hungry? You can order a larger portion for any of the pastas, which is what my friend did! :)|
|Shrimp and asparagus tomato cream spaghetti. This is next on my must-eat list.|
After demolishing our main dishes, next was dessert!
|Spinach chiffon cake! It was very light and fluffy...and the color is perfect for the spring/summer season!|
|Panna cotta. I feel like I could eat this everyday and not get sick of it. It had a milky, vanilla taste well balanced out by the tartness of the berry sauce!|
