Mitsuba by Yurine Restaurant is helmed by the same chef that opened Wasabi Tei and Chikuwa Tei. Everyone loves their bento and fresh, affordable sashimi slices. So the friends suggested this place for dinner. The entrance is so unattractive and if I walked past it, I will definitely not give a second glance.
The chef, who is still as grumpy
Unagi and cucumber appetiser
In my opinion, I think the sashimi was normal. I don’t like it when the sashimi is too cold for you can’t tell what you are eating. I really like the scallops, you can taste the sweetness in it. Maybe one day I should give their chirashi don a try to see what’s all the hype about
Vinegared Octopus and Seaweed
The salmon roe was a little too overpowering that it covered the flavour of the egg. In contrast, the egg was a little too bland.
Tuna Belly Maki
Pan Fried Gyoza
Kamo Nabe (Duck Hotpot)
I like the duck slices, though the soup could just been a little heavier on the taste.
Garlic Fried Rice
The rice feels different. It was rather separated and not like how Japanese rice should be like. If you are looking for a good plate of garlic rice, I like the one at Nirai Kanai Okinawan
The meal was good, but it was definitely not fantastic. Like Chikuwa Tei, the side dishes proves to be more deserving than their sashimi. But well, just my 5 cents worth 😉
