Specific days and months get bad press. January’s and Monday being the biggest victims in this calendary system of hate. Making things worse, who can think of a more hated Monday than that last Monday in January – the last Monday before payday.
Alleviating the pain and reminding you that resolutions are definitely more do-able in any other month are the saintly people at Aqua. High up and godly on the 5th floor of their Argyll Street residence, they have come up with a menu that’s as kind on your insides and it is to the contents of your purse.
The New Year Solutions menu contains no more than 1000 calories regardless of whatever combination you order.
Kicking of this virtuous feast diners can choose from a very light Sashimi Trio, Tuna with Braised Daikon, Sea Buckthorn Berries & Su Miso, or the rich Spinach Rolls with Roasted Sesame & Goma Dressing (which is prepared live at your table).
After the first round, diners will then be given the next set of wholesome choices:
Take Nabe Mushroom Bowl, Toban of melt in the mouth Braised Lamb with Edamame Tofu & Grilled Aubergine, and Salmon Nabe with Clear Dashi Soup & Udon Noodles with Oba Leaf.
Rounding off this nutrious dinner diners were planted with the Red Miso Chocolate & Green Tea Galette with Miso Milk Sorbet which was garnished with a Sesame Wafer, which we have been told was to provide an antioxidant-packed hit, to leave guests feeling refreshed and recharged as they leave.
Thankfully the most hated and sunshine stricken month is over, so we expect no more moaning. Whet those dry January whistles with Aqua Kyoto’s Soloutions menu.
