What I will harp on though was our lunch at Ohana Grill.
The restaurant has apparently won accolades for their tamago on national TV, and with just five items on the menu, I knew we were in for a good time.
I knew it was love when I laid eyes on this luminescent oyado-don (I didn’t even feel this way when I first saw the bub - kidding).
Initially I was a little surprised to see a parfait spoon served alongside, but a poke revealed much – chopsticks alone would not have been able to take on the incredible stewiness of this oyako-don.
And it is extremely thoughtful of the restaurant to use a parfait spoon as a spoon with a larger surface area would have caused second to third degree mouth burns.
Gluttony-induced casualties aside, this was one seriously delicious comfort food. Spoonful after spoonful, I felt like a machine programmed to clean out everything in my bowl.
Since Kawagoe is also known for their broiled eel, we also order the unaju-tamago don. While it wasn’t as sensational as the oyako-don, it was a solid rendition nonetheless – KW preferred this as the monotony of the oyako-don got to him after a while.
Well, we had to entertain ourselves during the 20-minute wait...
