Great Japanese food in the heart of LKF

At LKF most of the restaurants are American or International but now there is a good Japanese one called Ore-no Kappou by Ginza Okamoto at the new California building.

Here was what we had:

Welcome cocktail - Ore no Sakura:

Started off with this sweet cocktail that had notes of grapefruit, peach and sakura.
Definitely a sweet and pretty cocktail for girls.
Dassai 50% Junmai Daiginjo sparkling:

Tried this before and after it was shaken.
The taste before was quite light but after it was shaken the alcoholic taste was really strong.
Potato gazpacho with seafood:

Started with this delicious viscous potato gazpacho which was loaded with pieces of fish, scallops and prawns topped with creamy urchin on top.
Assorted sashimi:

The sashimi was fresh with a good assortment.
Seared abalone, sea urchin, scallop and seaweed wrapped in Japanese paper HOUSHO:

The Housho had a great wow factor, it was abalone, scallop, sea urchin topped with seaweed wrapped in paper with browned edges.

It was served with delicious abalone liver sauce that made it taste amazing.

Pan fried shirako with butter, assorted vegetables, ponzu sauce:

It was my first time trying Shirako and I have always wanted to try this because they look like mini brains or twisted intestines clumped together.
I didn't know what they were before but I found out that they are fish sperm sacks.
Anyway, I liked them because the texture was mushy and sticky like sweetbreads and the sauce tasted like sweet and sour sauce which complemented it nicely.
Grilled wagyu tenderloin and pan fried foie gras with truffle sauce:

The foie gras was huge, it was just as thick and big as the tenderloin which was tender and juicy.
Red miso soup:

Compared to the usual miso soups, this had a stronger beany bitter taste.
mackerel saba sushi:

It was my first time trying this as well and it was like a huge omurice and the comments were good because others said the fish tasted good.
Pineapple creme brulee:
I thought this was just going to be a an ordinary creme brulee flavoured with pineapple but again I was impressed because it was a huge slice of pineapple with creme brulee in the middle.

When you eat it, you have to dig right to the bottom to get the pineapple as well.

It was delicious because the juicy tart pineapple balances the sweetness and creaminess of the brulee which is a nice change from plain boring creme brulee.
Sweet red bean zenzai cigar style:

Red bean lovers will love this and there was a nice chewy layer in the middle of the crispy roll.
