A menu full of pictures and with descriptions in both English and Japanese. This is our order, fully written in Japanese. For those who speak the language, I would love to know the meaning of these characters.
To kick start our dinner, we ordered a few appetizers and this raw salmon plate is definitely a must-try: I give this 2 thumbs up!
Agedashi tofu is a delight Chris and I love and we always try it at different restaurants. This one is so yummy that my friend Mary actually said "This is the best Agedashi Tofu I have ever had!!", and I couldn't agree more. Grill skewers are up next: spring onion, sea scallop wraps in bacon, and homemade meat balls are among my favs.
Grill saba (a.k.a. mackerel) is up next, along with ramen noodles with pork in miso broth.
Are you wondering what this is? It is a mini deep fried octopus. A little creasy but hey, I don't have it everyday and it tastes so good.
We ordered some maki rolls and they came with a torch! I have never seen this before and let me just say: you have got to try this eel maki dish with crispy top (thanks to the torch) and the secret Japanese mayo. So GOOD!
It was such a treat to see how our food being prepared in front of us. Some of these pictures were only possible because Mary and I were actually sitting at the bar and right in front of the chef. Here he is: tall, handsome, and friendly. He practically turned the dish at certain angle in order for me to take a couple of shots while he prepared them.
