My Last experience at En was absolutely mesmerizing and when I got invite from them to experience their Sakura Springfest, I couldn’t have refused.

En for sure is amongst one of the most beautiful restaurants in Delhi. Located in Ambawatta where Lavash by Saby exists on the same floor. It was springfest  –  welcoming of spring in Japanese culture. Cherry blossom in japan is also known as Sakura. Hanami is japanese traditional custom and literally means viewing flowers. People love viewing cherry blossoms and celebrate with drinks and food. It’s like picnic under the tree where people bring home cook food and then celebrate. The most popular kind of Japanese cherry (sakura) tree which can be found everywhere in Japan is somei-yoshino (Yedoensis). Sakura trees bloom at different times throughout Japan, and the blooming period of somei-yoshino is usually short.

Miso Soup

Miso Soup – Traditional Japanese soup made from Dashi (stock) and paste. It was one of the lightest soups that I have tasted – Absolutely fresh, light and delicious.

There are enough dishes for vegetarians too – The yakitori, sushi rolls, tofu sautéed (it was really good) and vegetable tempura.
