Quoin offers a variety of drink concoctions that change regularly and will have you wanting to try every one on the menu. There’s a throw back to old cocktails but with Quoin unique twist on them. On a recent beautiful Saturday night, I chose the Mighty Seventy Four (or Five…I can’t remember) but holy moly it was tasty! Gin, Earl Grey syrup, soda and Prosecco. Need I say more?!
Quoin serves the whole Revel menu in the bar and on the deck so in case you get there and your wait is just too long, remember that you have options! On the weekends try a Kimchi Bloody Mary with your breakfast!
Maeda – Hakuba, Japan
Every year we go back to Hakuba my husband and I make this restaurant a must for lunch. It usually happens on our first day in town because we’ve been thinking about it for a year and just can’t wait any longer.
The katsudon is to die for. The breaded pork cutlet is so tender and with the egg on top and the perfect rice underneath, this dish disappears fast! Another favorite is the tempura udon and most recently for me the tempura soba…same dish just with buckwheat soba noodles instead of the udon noodles.
I’m not sure what this was but it was so tasty. Some sort of pickled or fermented vegetable. That’s a vague description but I really have no inkling as to what it was. Most likely a veggie we don’t have in the states.
This was some of the BEST Kimchi I’ve ever had! I could have eaten this whole plate by myself. Next time:)
My tempura soba…DE-lish! I couldn’t eat even half the noodles but I loved everything about this. You could tell the noodles were made fresh…they were incredible! I’m probably going to be dreaming about this until the next time we get back here.
My husband’s tempura udon…you can’t go wrong with this one!
Mmmm…the katsudon…this is unbelievable – that is assuming you eat pork. I’m afraid to try this dish in the states assuming it might not live up to my expectations. I don’t want to ruin it.
