Lately, we have been trying to eat at a different restaurant every Saturday. So we walked into this quiet little Japanese restaraunt at Eastwood. Just to try something new.
It was not until I started writing this post that I realised that I had actually read about this restaraunt before. What lured us into this place was its colourful posters of its lunch specials. And the menu which was not only quite extensive, but had pictures of everything- which is especially useful for people like me, who have just learnt what the the terms ‘maki’ and ‘nigiri’ mean.
The photo of the BBQ calamari on the menu made it look shiny and purple and black. The actualy dish was not as shiny but hey, it still looks interesting! The calamari was served with teriyaki sauce- I’m a fan of teriyaki sauce so it was not surprise that I loved this dish. I even ate the lettuce! (that was after I dipped it in the sauce, of course)Special Sakae Lunchbox + Udon $15.80The lunchbox consisted of assorted nigiri, salmon sashimi, karaage chicken and egg and came with a bowl of udon noodles. The chicken was slightly cold but overall, it was good. Udon Noodles -$14.80
Lastly, there was the udon noodles. This was served in a stone pot (with a handle) which reminded me of Bibimbap!!! The noodles came with a choice of beef or one prawn tempura. I went for the tempura, which went all soggy in the soup. The serving sizes were quite small and the meal left us wishing that we had ordered more.
