An afternoon with Sayoko at Yen


Sesame tofu

Dear Shaded Viewers,

My friend Sayoko and I decided to celebrate the new year with lunch at YEN. I think the last time that we were there together was a birthday lunch for Silvia Bombardini. We had a Sake toast too which is a pretty rare occassion.

Soba and oysters
Soba, always good luck for the new year, here a bit late…with oysters.
