Early Summer Omakase at Shunji

Last night, I went back to Shunji after just a one week break.  This is NOT something that I can afford to do all the time (or even some of the time), but the timing worked out for me to go two weeks in a row, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.  And Chris Hei, being my “sidekick” (his word, not mine), accompanied me.

Since I just did a detailed review of my omakase from last week , I’m just going to let the photos speak for themselves.  But if you have any questions on the dishes, ingredients, or anything else, comment below, and I’ll respond!  Without further ado…
