WatatsumiOctober 22, 2013
Posted by Kanga. Please do not reblog.
We were invited to the grand opening of the Watatsumi restaurant in Le Meridien Mina Seyahi hotel. As you know, when someone says “sushi” I’m there.
We began by meeting our future dinner.
This may seem like a big fish, but as tuna go, this is a little one.
Miyoko Shida performed the feather balancing act, which is amazing. She begins with a white feather. Then adds sticks creating a perfectly balanced structure.
She keeps the structure moving slowly around in a circle.
She can’t bend over, so she picks up each stick with her foot.
She balances it on her head.
Then she tips up that last stick and uses it as a pedestal.
Then she takes off the feather and it all comes tumbling down.
The aftermath. My camera battery wouldn’t allow for a full length video, but if you want to see her in action, click here.
Then, we had some delicious food. Mushroom appetizer.
Beef and potato salad.
Seared tuna and kelp salad.
Tuna and salmon sashimi (a bit of our friend the big fish)
Ending with a tasty dessert – lemon custard and hazelnut crumbs. Maybe it’s been too long since I’ve had a lemon meringue pie, but this was a big hit with me. Yummy!
Everything was tasty. We will be going back to Watatsumi for a proper meal and proper review.
