Rakuichi - In Seasons

12 comments:
 
Starter salad
Suggestive of life,
the colours of Spring.
Rousing the palate,
and new beginnings.

Porcelain chopstick stand
Arid wastelands this used to be
Summer comes to this oasis
Even the fish seek cool relief
But few will get their rest in peace

Rakuichi Sushi, S$28, their signature dish
Autumn harvest of soft-shell crab
Slivers of fish and avocado
Dainty rice speckled with roe
Crowned with pearl of orange gold

Goma ice cream
Dark cold Winter brings sweet delight
A frosty palace of suspended life
Sandy black sesame seizes the soul
And melts away the cares of old

As with the inaniwa udon, all can be found at...

  11. Haha Nic, *you* are the master of poetic food posts! I have much to learn from you!

    Lady/Brad: luck has everything to do with taking a good photo, especially when you have only 5 seconds to compose and take your shot, while keeping grubby baby hands off the food/camera/cutlery/wandering waitstaff. AND the food has to look good in the first place! lol

    Ah excellent, so you haven't noticed that my "many new posts" are often of the same place! Of late, I usually only have one trip during the weekends to generate a whole week's worth of postings. Sigh, kids falling sick, MIL falling sick...I'm too tired to take photos sometimes.
