レストラン Princeton Japanese restaurant

Yesterday my fiancé and I were in Princeton and found this restaurant Ajihei.

The restaurant is on 11 Chambers St. with steps leading down to the restaurant at the basement level. It is quite small with seven tables and three chairs at the sushi bar. It was authentic feeling with the light lacquered wood and a painting of a Japanese scene. The staff there speaks Japanese which adds to the authentic feel and is a good way to practice your Japanese.

Below are tatsuta-age and the second photo is potato and corn korokke with tofu on the side. (The korokke was awesome too!)

おいしい Chilled somen and kanten jello

I’m noticing a trend with my blog that I am posting more and more about food. I guess it’s the taste of Japanese food that makes me feel like I’m in Japan just for a moment. Nothing quite compares to the flavor and a artistry of Japanese cooking. So with that said, last month I posted about an awesome Japanese cook book I got for my birthday. I decided to make chilled somen and also Japanese jello. The recipe for the jello was actually mamekan but I forgot to pick up the beans at Mitsuwa, so it was just kanten jello with fruit and dark syrup. If you would like to buy the book they sell it on jbox.com along with some other awesome Japanese/English bilingual cook books.

I topped the somen with jumbo shrimp, thin omelet, shiitake, grated ginger, green onions and mitsuba. I also added the dipping sauce in the bowl which was amazing!

Japanese jello (let the kanten soak for two hours, boil and add sugar, and let sit) with fruit and homemade dark syrup.
