We have not been to Chopped Parsley in some time but saw that the tiny Japanese eatery in Hamilton Heights recently posted a delicious donburi special on their Instagram site so decided to head over to 146th Street just west of Amsterdam Avenue.   Donburi dishes are basically rice bowls with seasoned savory seafood or meats on top and often accented with traditional bright pickles.  The skin of the salmon is one of the most delicious part of the fish since the oils within provide a crispy texture that is both healthy and tasty at the same time.

Our first order of the evening was a small carafe of cold sake which ended up being a refreshing starter alongside a small bowl of miso soup with a bit seaweed and slivered sweet poached onions accenting the dish.  Plain miso is not really our favorite dish but the additional fresh ingredients made this version stand out in a good way. The salmon skin donburi came next on a bed of sushi rice which was a nice additional flavor profile added on to the layer of delicious fish, cool cucumber strips, and tangy pickled radish paired with the sharp sliced preserved ginger.

Chopped Parsley is really homestyle cooking with a lot of heart and has recently opened again during lunch hours and for standard dinner service every day of the week except on Sundays.  For more on this boutique restaurant in the Heights, check out our past post: LINK
