Last weekend, SC and I had different activities, but promised to meet at Hotel Ambhara for lunch. We wanted to go to Tsukinofune, which had been in our must try list for a long time. As I arrived late, SC has almost finished his salmon maki 45K. Luckily, he saved one for me to taste and it was delicious. The place is rather small, but it was full during lunch time and quite a lot of the patrons are Japanese. We then ordered Tsukinofune bento 160K to share. When it arrived, we’re quite surprised by the portion of it. There were 9 delicacies arranged beautifully in the box plus chawanmushi, miso soup, salad & rice outside the box.

Tsukinofune Bento

I especially liked the chawanmushi. In my opinion, it was the most delicious chawanmushi I’ve ever tasted. The miso shiru & salad was decent. After that, we tried the chicken yakitori, grilled salmon, miso glazed unagi, crab & prawn tempura covered with almond slices (loved it), wakame salad topped with jellyfish (if I’m not mistaken), cha soba topped with quail egg, assorted sashimi and some beef dish in sweet sauce. Overall, I was very satisfied with the meal, and the price we paid was still reasonable considering the quality we got. For the finisher, we got a complimentary dessert: coconut ice cream in plum sauce, which also tasted delicious. Tsukinofune will surely become one of my favorite places for Japanese fusion cuisine.
