Who's cuisine reigns supreme?

Originally uploaded by Axel Larsson.
That would be Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, of course...

A bi-annual indulgence that a few of us take part in (which corresponds with the two times a year that Joy and Mike visit the east coast), celaeno, nemo_wistar, redvector, and leprechaung and I went to Morimoto in Philly this past Wednesday.

Most of us (except Joy) had the Omakase, which roughly translates into "I'm in your hands." Basically, you order the Omakase at a particular price point, and you get an eight course chef's choice menu. This is the best way to experience everything that the restaurant has to offer.

Seems a bit much, perhaps.. but I have to say it's entirely worth it. I didn't know that food could be this good. redvector and leprechaung experienced it for the first time, and I'm sure they'll be along for subsequent trips.

celaeno did an excellent writeup in her journal. redvector posted about it as well.

Looks like Joy's entry is protected though, so I will have to do my own writeup. In the meantime, have a look at the pictures.

"Looks tasty," he said, as he continued eating leftover pizza.

I have decided.

We should do the $140 omakase, with plenty of his sake to wash it down.

Oh, I am so looking forward to the summer.

*starting to save money now*

Mr. Marotta, I do believe we have a plan.
