Jun-i again

It has become tradition to document our meals at Jun-i, so here’s another round of snaps. This visit was in honour of my brother’s visit to Montreal.

We started the meal with miso soup, but I forgot to take a picture, alas. The soup had enoki mushrooms, tiny cubes of tofu, wakame, and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes for spice.

Sushi special

Yusuke had the chef’s choice of sushi. He said “mmmmm” after every bite, so I guess this passed muster. Kudos to the waitress for knowing the names of the fish in Japanese (mostly). For some reason, she was very surprised when Yusuke said he spoke Japanese; I guess his English is good enough now that she couldn’t tell he wasn’t a native speaker.

I had the sushi and sashimi lunch special. The salmon was particularly fabulous.

My brother was more creative and chose organic Pacific salmon. We couldn’t determine the nature of the vegetable on top, nor the sauce—which despite the colour wasn’t sweet. But it appeared to be appreciated.

We also each ordered one of the three desserts of the day and shared samples. Yum.

Custard with raspberry

A very light, airy custard-like dessert with raspberry purée on top (I forgot the proper name; oops). This was definitely the best of the three.

Chocolate mousse

Incredibly rich chocolate mousse with fresh, sweet strawberries.
