A day after my actual birthday, Immanuel brought me to Teppei for a simple omakase dinner and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! It was even more informal than Roan Kikunoi so I was really at ease.
So glad that we finally got to try it! Now I can strike it off my list and stop wondering what it would have been like. There were so many dishes presented in such interesting ways that we lost count. There were two that we didn’t manage to snap photos of as we ate it off the spoon in their hands!
The night ended with the staff suddenly crouching at the corner and then surprising us with a candle on our uni rice!
There were 2 other birthdays babies so the atmosphere wasn’t too daunting. I loved the entire experience.
Some customers were obviously regulars and I wonder if I’d ever get to that stage where Teppei Omakase becomes a norm. For now, I told Immanuel that we could come back for special occasions but going too often might make it less special.
