This place is not your usual Japanese restaurant. Don’t expect to find your favourite sushi or sashimi there. Instead, what’s nice about this place is how homely the dishes are, like what Okinawan dishes should be. They are very much focus on their pork and stir fry dishes so don’t be surprised by how a simple meal can taste so outstanding.
A good sake to recommend
The wasabi will just go straight to your nose. It’s dangerously addictive
Crispy River Shrimp
So good and crispy
Deep Fried Octopus
This was pretty normal in my opinion
Garlic Fried Rice
Tastes like Japan
Deep Fried Minced Meat Patties
Simmered Pork Belly
3 words. It’s sooo awesome
Do not underestimate this plate of spring onion with simmered pork. You will never see spring onion in the same way after this.
Bittergourd with egg and tofu. The classic Okinawan dish and a fairly popular dish among the patrons. I, myself do not like bittergourd cos it’s really bitter. But if you are a fan of bittergourd, do give it a try
Pork Belly Soup Noodles
The friend decided to order this after I raved how awesome their pork belly is. haha
Definitely the highlight of our meal. This yakitori is so awesome you should really try it out. It’s worth every minute of the wait. The first bite is purely bliss, like imagining yourself in the cold weather drinking sake and eating yakitori at the same time (ahhh)
If you wanna have some good Japanese dishes, this place is definitely worth visiting.
