I have been wanting to try Izakaya Uosan for a long time now, since they opened! And wouldn’t you know? They just celebrated 5 years! I can’t believe they’ve been open for so long?? The food is super good here but…hold onto your hats when you see the prices okay? I came into this place knowing it would be a bit pricey but it was worth! Well almost all of it…
Daikon Salad | $8.50
Good, not great. I’ve had better, I probably wouldn’t get this again.
Natto, Okura, Yamaimo with Nori | $7.50
I really enjoyed this dish, but I always enjoy this dish whenever I order it…whereever! Delicious.
Oysters with Ponzu | $16.00
Okay, maybe this is junk of me but I like the really fat oysters lol. This was okay but nothing to write home about (even though I’m blogging about it). It was good but not a must have.
Chicken Karaage | $6.50
Great chicken karaage, fried perfectly and the chicken pieces were so juicy and tender. This is what chicken karaage should always be!
Foie Gras with Braised Daikon | $19.50
Lackluster dish especially for the price. The daikon didn’t taste like it was simmered in the broth long enough. The foie gras was a small piece, the braised onions (I’m assuming in red wine) was a nice touch. I wouldn’t get this dish again.
Sashimi Sampler | $86.00
Yes, that price is right. Yes, we indulged! All fresh fish and I think all from Japan? It was super good and included fish I never tried before. Super great quality, and I loved that they torched the skin so it was easy to chew and eat. Delicious! Pricey yes. Worth it? Yes!
Uni, Truffle Butter with Egg Yolk Rice | $21.00
Braaaaah, I know I know, expensive! But I think hands down this was my favorite dish of the night. SO GOOD. And the uni? SO GOOD. I’ve had uni in other dishes and it was always bitter or had a taste to it…this uni was so creamy and rich. No weird taste at all. Wonderful truffle taste and you know I love myself some TKG! Yum yum yum!
