Takumi serves up unbelievably cheap sets that make it very worthwhile to drive out here for lunch.
1) Saba Set
($15): perfectly grilled slab of fish, burnished to a gorgeous gold and delectably moist. The bonito-flaked parboiled spinach and sauteed mushrooms were served refreshingly chilled.
2) Tempura Hot Soba Set
($15): a wholesome bowl of soupy buckwheat noodles was paired with a duo of massive inari sushi, marinated spinach, and sauteed mushrooms.
3) Tempura Soba Set
($15): nice contrast of the piping hot crisp of tempura moriawase with the cool clarity of the icy soba noodles. This was sided by kelp-garnished bamboo shoots, bonito-topped lady's fingers and a couple of inari sushi.
4) All the sets were started off with a half-cup of Chawanmushi
, dotted with shitake, chicken and prawn dice.
5) To round off the meal, we were served a dessert of fruit cups, with melons, pineapples, strawberries and mangoes in a pool of sweet syrup.
6) An off-menu item that the chef very kindly obliged at my request, the Dobinmushi
($16) was refined, delicate, and choc-a-bloc with sparkling fresh seafood
