One of the things I got to do while I was in New York City,
was to visit Brooklyn and try some of the restaurants.
One of them is a Japanese restaurant serving Kyoto style
small plates, including fresh house-made tofu and new style sushi.
My friend and his wife suggested Hibino Brooklyn.

We started with the fresh house-made tofu,
served warm (or cold) with grated ginger and scallions
with a soy-dash sauce.
This reminded me of my trip to Kyoto and
had fresh made tofu table side.
Deep-fried house-made tofu with
shishito peppers, Shiitake mushroom
in a soy-dashi sauce.
One of the best agedashi tofu I've
had outside of Japan.
Yellowtail sashimi and Mesclun
with shaved daikon & carrots in an onion soy dressing.
A Japanese pancake special
Not my favorite dish of the evening,
seems it was made earlier and warmed up.
It was a bit rubbery.
Spiced Miso Simmered Meatballs
with beef & pork and white button mushrooms.
I might have to knock this off,
it was pretty good.
I've had a lot of good sushi
and it was good here.
The thing to order is the Hako Sushi,
box pressed sushi. It's a specialty
from the Osaka area of Japan.
We ordered the Kyoto Hako Sushi
with grilled Spanish Mackerel, Shiitake,
and Shiso Leaf (along with nigiri sushi)
I'm going to have to remember grilled
Spanish Mackerel in box sushi.
It's a Japanese restaurant serving
fresh house-made tofu,
Kyoto style obanzai (Japanese tapas),
and sushi (traditional and contemporary).
I'll be back!
Be sure to check the daily specials.
