Raku Ramen

Takoyaki

Crispy edged balls of octopus and vegetables are battered and fried in a round skillet. Then, those balls are topped with two sauces and bonito flakes. Paired with pickled cabbage on the side, this is one very satisfying way to start the meal.

Shisito Peppers

They’re a perfect nibble.

Spicy Miso

This was a delicate spice. Not too spicy and rich with miso, this was a real winner.

New Saigon Vietnamese Bistro

Black & White Tofu

This was crispy and brittle with the added richness of sesame seeds on the outside. On the inside, silky smooth tofu melts delicately with your bite. What’s not to love?

Still yum…

If you eat them immediately, they’re delicately crisp on the outside. The inside is dotted with just enough pastry cream to make them a special treat. After a couple minutes of being bagged up, they get soft and a bit [...]

Georgia Olive Farms Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Georgia Olive Farms Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Chef’s Blend)

It’s quite mild, pleasantly smooth, and a tiny touch buttery. If you’re looking for a light, bright, and mildly flavored olive oil, this will fit the bill. It’ll add a light and lovely background note. There will never be [...]

Fried Basil & Oysters

Crispy fried oysters bursting with sweetness, brittle basil and golden brown slivers of garlic, we both loved every bite.
