Welcome is shouted in Japanese as you walk through the doorway.  Inside a huge kitchen and bar extends the length of the narrow restaurant.  It’s very cute and is the perfect place to warm up on a cold winter’s day, however,  I still enjoyed myself being in the midst of summer and hottest of days.

 I start off with a refreshing lemon Sawaa made with vodka, homemade lemonade and soda.  I also ordered some snacks.

Gyoza is lightly seared on the bottom giving the dumplings a smoky flavour.  Original karaage is tender with pieces of dark meat served alongside a seaweed mayo that’s creamy and garlicky. 

I really enjoyed the Tofufural; sometimes tofu can taste bland but here they stuff it with green onions and dress it in a creamy hot chili sauce.  And who could go without an order of sweet and sour Kimchi, it’s spicy and great to pick at.

Next up is a fragrant Shoyu Ramen soup  – soy sauce, kinton pork, bean sprout, scallions, nori, and seasoned egg.  The broth is made with a mix of pork bone, chicken, fish and vegetable stock simmering with bones in a large pot for over 20 hours!  The pork in the soup could have been a tad tenderer, but the housemade noodles are divine.  I normally opt out of noodles whenever I order soup but here I would never go without them;  perfect texture, flawlessly cooked and the price are right for the portion.

They say eating good quality pork back fat may extend one’s life –  I like that way of thinking.  Overall I found the restaurant enjoyable and charming.  Servers are cheerful and friendly.

 Arigatou Gozaimasu!!
