Meanwhile, an unusual autumn menu was released at the restaurant "Love Ginza Glasse" in Ginza, Tokyo. It is a dish that you can enjoy the signature menu "Kirishima Kurobuta Shabu-shabu" with "Mango Who".
In French, meat is sometimes eaten with fruit sauce, but this is the first time for "Shabu-shabu x Fruit Who". I was wondering what it tasted like, so I ate it.
Shabu-shabu eaten with mango can be enjoyed by adding "Mango fruit sauce with Rabuta special flavor sauce" (330 yen) to the regular shabu-shabu menu (2,100 yen). What was brought in was pork with a beautiful color and green onions piled up like a mountain. And with the mangoes, there is the "Kyotamba Shimeji Samadhi" (700 yen), which is also offered only in the fall.
The Kagoshima style is to put green onions in boiling water, put thinly sliced pork on top of it, cook it, and have it with plenty of green onions. It is said that they are usually eaten with soup stock that has a strong soup stock.
Looking at the mango who will be served this time, the bright yellow sauce is topped with mint and black pepper, which is more like a mango pudding than a sauce.
If you put pork and green onions in this golden sauce and put it in your mouth ... you will be surprised at the acidity beyond your imagination. I had imagined a sweet taste like dessert, but it seems that it contains white wine vinegar, and it has a taste that fits well with the dish. And this sour taste that stimulates the throat surprisingly enhances the sweetness of Kirishima Kurobuta. It made me realize once again the sweetness and umami of pork, which is comparable to the richness of the sauce. Pork was so sweet ...!
In addition, the acidity makes my tired body feel tighter. It's an autumn menu, but it may be just right for the end of summer.
Mushrooms are tightly packed and make a crisp sound each time they are chewed. Enoki mushrooms can also be eaten raw. There is no earthiness, and the crispy texture seems to be addictive.
I felt that soba soup was more suitable for mushrooms than mango. When you put mushrooms on a mango, you can beat the delicate taste of the mushrooms. On the other hand, pork is delicious even when soaked in soba soup. The fat of the pork melts into the soup and it becomes more delicious, so please add a little yuzu pepper to it and enjoy it with sake.
And at the end, I will put soba in the Kagoshima style again. Soba with shabu-shabu is a fresh feeling. The noodles are a little fine, but they are chewy and satisfying to eat. For women, it may be just right to share one serving with two people.
Both will be available for a limited time until September 29th. How about a slightly unusual shabu-shabu at the end of summer?
