Appetizer set pictured here: simmered dish of carrot, daikon radish, spicy konnyaku, lotus root, burdock, shrimp, snow peas, shiitake mushroom, and dashi jelly sauce with a barbecue meatball skewer, pickled vegetables and a side of ankimo, ponzu jelly, leek shirage, leek chive, momiji oroshi, and chrysanthemum petal.
