TrelayneNYC Posted May 1, 2017 Share Posted May 1, 2017 We had Japanese brunch on Saturday at Okane (669 Townsend at 18th in South of Market), a sister restaurant of Omakase. House salad, rice cracker, ume vinaigrette. Miso soup. Tsukemono. You can really tell how good a restaurant is by whether the kitchen pays attention to detail, and these were no exception. Pictured are kyuri-zuke (pickled Japanese cucumber) and asa-zuke (zucchini, carrot and onion quick pickle). Oysters with tobiko (flying fish roe) and scallion. Clockwise from bottom center: stewed pork belly, green onion; sesame tofu with cucumber and wasabi; soy-glazed smoked salmon; broth with daikon radish, hon-shimeji mushrooms, chicken and watercress; tamago-zushi (egg omelette cooked with mirin and dashi, wrapped around Japanese rice with nori seaweed). This was served with a bowl of Japanese rice. The salmon was a tad overcooked, but otherwise everything else was spot on. We were comped a plate of tuna and salmon sashimi that the kitchen sent out because the oysters took about 15 minutes to get to our table. A very nice gesture on their part. Really great value for the price. Total bill was $67 for 2 people not including a 20% tip. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
