first was the pig’s ear ( i saw on couple of blog reviews), and the wasabi octopus.

both were good. ^^ small dishes, especially the pig’s ears. the octopus was interesting, very nice teture & flavours.

we had the okinawan braised belly pork (a famous okinawan dish) well reported by almost every blogger. it was good, but not much different from the kakuni i did. it was also a little on the sweet side, and by comparison, the steamed knuckles we had later was better! 🙂

deepfried small river shrimps

bitter gourd was done well, no bitter taste. it was something quite easy to do at home though.

silk gourd with minced pork

the silk gourd with minced was nice. i liked it, for me a better dish than the bitter gourd. our dentist friend split the dish for 6 servings. very well done indeed!^^
