Kisoji, my favorite restaurant in my town

The other day we went to Kisoji for lunch, my favorite restaurant in my town. It is a restaurant chain, but it offers good quality of foods and services. The waitresses are serving in kimono. Their lunch menus are nice Japanese dish sets. Each dish set we ordered cost 1,500yen. I think they are reasonable for these many dish sets.

This is what I ordered, sashimi set
Some sashimi, tempura, some other dishes, rice and soup

Hiro and my father had sukiyaki set
Have you tried sukiyaki? Beef and some vegetables are cooked with soy sauce based sweet sauce. You eat them by dipping raw egg. Yum(^-^)

My mother had Kisoji set.

Hojicha was served with meal

Sencha was served with dessert
Dessert was ice-cream. They had few choices for the flavor. I had matcha ice cream

Some flowers are display at the hallways

I like their service. They have omotenashi-spirit, hospitality. For example, when you get in the room, they arrange the shoes you take off. They also provided a napkin to cover my wife’s bag for preventing spatters of meal. I think the flowers in the hallways are part of their omotenashi. Those services are not that huge, but small cares to customers. I like that
