Pork Belly and Chawanmushi for Bento Box Brunch at Nobuo at Teeter House

Categories: Chow Bella

Ramen noodles (mixed with a light, soy-based sauce), chicken katsu (fried cutlet), grilled chicken thigh, marinated and fried chicken wing, striped Mandurian Round cucumber (an heirloom variety), tomato, fried okra, pickled ginger and slivers of cooked egg make a beautifully composed cold plate that feels just right for summer.

The handiwork of Arai Bakery
Fukuda lets Arai Bakery in Tempe handle the desserts and they are spectacular -- this day, a fluffy bit of orange and cream (served in an orange wedge), which brings Orange Julius to mind, a black and white sesame creme caramel whose flavor is strangely akin to peanut butter and a restrained tomato-basil cheesecake, spooned with tomato jam, that leaves America's overly sweet, lead-heavy cheesecakes in the dust. Alongside it, tangy tomato-goat cheese ice cream.

Bottom Line: What a gorgeous, fabulous Sunday morning splurge for $50! As for those pricy, predictable hotel brunches, sorry, for me, there's no going back.
