Dinner, August 29, 2019

My first real meal after saying goodbye to a wisdom tooth three days ago.
Still nothing crunchy or tough to chew, but it had enough variation compared to my recent diet of somen noodles or rice and bean curry soup (all easy to eat with half a mouth).

  • Gohan / steamed rice
  • Shishito no ebi-tsume tenpura, nira no hana no tenpura / shrimp-stuffed shishito pepper tempura, garlic chive flower tempura
  • Yakinasu no surinagashi / grilled eggplant soup with myoga ginger bud, shiso perilla leaves and cucumber flower
  • Nagaimo no achara-zuke / pickled Chinese yam in spicy sweetened vinegar
  • Kabu no shinodamaki / Japanese turnip and thin deep-fried tofu rolls in broth
  • Karashina to mini tomato no ohitashi / mustard greens and grape tomatoes in light broth
