Herby Sunomono

You know how much we love all things picked … sunomono is a dish we can’t resist when out at a japanese restaurant.
— An & Kaitlyn

This version combines our love for herbs with our love for spice. Make it as a fresh side salad or pair it with our bulgolgi marinated mushrooms over a bed of sticky rice - you wont be dissapointed.
