I’ve already covered Takao in some detail HERE and then separately here, but we went back (we go often) and I built another “custom omakase” trying some different things. The full menu and some information on the history of the place can be found through the first link.
House cold sake. Masumi “Okuden-Kanzukuri” Nagano prefecture.
Miso soup. I think if you ask they have a couple different types. This is the basic scallion and tofu.
Rock Shrimp Tempura Dynamite. The underlying component is in itself tasty. Sweet rock shrimp perfectly fried. Then you ad some dynamite with it’s zesty zing and it gets even better. For those not in the know Dynamite is a warm sauce consisting of mayo, sriarcha hot sauce, and masago semlt roe.
And this wraps up the custom omakase.
Below is the Salmon Terriyaki “set dinner,” it comes with everything shown.
