After our long day trekking across Manhattan, we were all ready for dinner. Pdho’s cousin was going to join as well. Ckoh seemed very excited to take us to what I think is his favorite robatayaki place in NYC, Aburiya Kinnosuke. Unfortunately, it turned out that the robata grill was being repaired so there was a decent part of the menu that wasn’t available that night. In spite of missing out some of these dishes which Ckoh felt was pretty darn special, it was still a very delicious meal overall.
As usual, we sat back and let him take control of the ordering and the following represents the parade of dishes that followed. In spite of the number of dishes, I would usually try to write a little blurb, but sadly, it’s been quite a bit of time since we ate there and I can’t really remember too much detail anymore. Considering the numerous things that we had, I’ll have to let the pictures do most of the talking. 😉
The croquette was yummy, but I can’t recall if it was shrimp or crab. Either way, it was a tasty start to the meal.
All in all, it was a very good restaurant. I like the izakaya-style aspect of the restaurant and even though we didn’t get to try any of the robata grill dishes, I still think the rest of the menu is pretty strong. I would definitely want to venture back some day and give the robata grill a try.
