Kin Ryu Tei & Tomoe), Hyotan's ambiance somewhat is so similar to other commercial Japanese restaurants, we quickly flipped the menu and almost instantly ordered.
Salmon Bento Set presented with rice, raw salmon pieces, salad, vegetable pickle, fruits, tofu in soy sauce and Japanese sea weed was an okay meal for me. Fresh salmon didn't let me down, when eaten with rice and the rest of the items, its a comforting fast catch Japanese rice meal. Basically, a no-frill meal, upon finishing off, we agreed to call for dessert.
Vanilla Monaka and Green Tea Ice-Cream. Vanilla ice cream cased in crispy waffle skin was smooth and creamy whereas upon the first mouthful of green tea ice-cream, I especially thought that it tasted fake. Something was not right with the taste of green tea. Rather bitter, didn't work well overall.
U always go to such intresting places and eat yum food..ReplyDelete
Keep in touch,
oh green tea? I thought those were beers!ReplyDelete
I guess sometimes one can't judge the food by the images. They all look so delicious and interesting. I love the vanilla monaka. If I hadn't read that bit about you reserving your comment on the quality of food, I'd have thought that you relished the lunch!ReplyDelete
Have a great week!

Hey Nava, guess what? I often stock up those Japanese ice-cream wafers in my fridge, but I always buy the green tea flavours. I'm sure you can get it from the Japanese supermarkets in your area.ReplyDelete
Oh my! Quite an interesting menu Nava.. Both the desserts – the vanilla ice-cream waffles and the green tea ice-cream left me craving for some :-)ReplyDelete

Wasn't that great exploring restaurants as you walk down a road? I often do that. I would just go to even the non-fancy restaurants to discover that their food sometimes scores much better than their extremely pricey cousins. I loved the chawanmushi and and green tea ice cream. The salmon looks so fresh and lively! Great review!!ReplyDelete
