A selection of starters opens the Sato menu: you can choose from cucumber with moromi, miso barley or grilled beef tongue with ponzu sauce and radish.
The speciality of the restaurant is hand-made and –cut udon, served both cold and hot. We found especially interesting the one with miso pork, nori seaweed and sesame seeds in ponzu sauce. You can also have udon with stock, for example fish stock, with soya sauce and stewed duck breast. A vegetarian version is also available: with fried tofu and wakame seaweed.
And we have good news for those who miss Poznań and its cult restaurant Min’s Onigiri: Sato also serves onigiri sandwiches (rice wrapped in nori sheet) with salmon, umeboshi (Japanese salt plums) and miso pork.
If you feel like something sweet there is panna cotta with matcha. Among drinks there are traditional sencha, genmaicha, bancha and assam. A roasted barley infusion (mugicha, 麦茶) and kombucha drink based on a Japanese fungus are especially worth trying.
Sato Gotuje is a place where we can relish the flavours of traditional Japanese dishes, minimalist aesthetics and unique atmosphere of the Far East.
The restaurant is open from Wednesday till Saturday from 16.00 to 22.00, it is located in 24 Adolfa Pawińskiego street in Warsaw.
