Last night ,Irm, Babagee (my father in law) and I dined at Hanami Japanese Cuisine just outside Princeton, NJ.
We had a great time celebrating Irm’s birthday, and enjoying the great company of her father, which I always enjoy very much.
For starters we had an order of Shumai, which was very good. Often time this dish will be a bit gooey, but to my surprise it did not disappoint.
For her main dish Irm ordered the Wood Chip Grilled Beef Tenderloin, which had wasabi truffle butter, caramelized baby veggies & teriyaki pudding. It was excellent!
Babagee ordered the Filet with Black Pepper Sauce, which had Asparagus, snow peas, water chestnuts, shiitake mushrooms and baby corn. This dish is relatively a bigger dish than the previews one, which makes it a good choice if you are hungry.
I ended up oredering three rolls of sushi, the Hulk, the Red Dragon, and the Hanami.
The Hulk had Spicy white tuna & tempura flakes inside with yellow tail, avocado & wasabi tobiko on top.
The Red Dragon had Shrimp tempura & spicy mayo topped with spicy tuna & tempura flakes.
The Hanami had Tuna, yellow tail, salmon, kani, tobiko, avocado wrapped with cucumber.
All of the sushi dishes were very fresh and delicious, though a bit expensive.
All in all, we had a great time together.
