Teishoku Entrees


We are now offering Teishoku style entrees for dinner!

Teishoku entree items will come with miso soup, salad, seasonal vegetable, rice and a choice of chawan-mushi (savory steamed egg pudding with vegetables) or seaweed salad.

Please note this means a few changes in the menu prices. We always appreciate your business and look forward to serving you this new year!
