Hamamori Japanese Good Eat @ South Coast Plaza

For a while I have been wanting to try Hamamori located inside Crystal Court at South Coast Plaza. The other day I finally lunched there with a few gal pals. The environment was not like other Japanese restaurant.  The space was very cool since it was completely white. Service was attentive and friendly. I opted to try the Omakase, a 6 course tasting menu. I love this tofu with diced tomato with ginger dressing. This appetizer is just perfect for a hot day.
 Sashimi with green salad and ginger dressing.
 Tuna, yellowtail and salmon nigiri.
 Rock shrimp tempura. I am not too crazy about this dish because I don't like soggy tempura.
This beef filet with mushroom was so tender and flavorful. I didn't have a chance to take a picture of the dessert which was green tea ice cream with assorted berries. I lost it to a child in our group which turned out for the best. I really don't need more sugar calories as I can't grow taller like a child; I can only grow wider.
 Gal pal got this for her little one. It was quite interesting to cook beef at the table with a hot stone.
All in all, I would try this place again. I can't say I am crazy about Hamamori but the food is decent and the service is quite nice. Also it is a good resting placing after a couple hours of shopping. Are you a fan of sushi??
