This was a wonderful lunch, every dish was made with tofu, from the appetizers to the dessert. Three Japanese ladies worked in the kitchen to serve an amazing array of dishes, served with sake, to eight diners. All the ingredients were high quality, the tofu handmade by Eri with organic soy beans, and many of the vegetables came from Kazuyo's garden. Gochiso sama deshita!
