Are budget eating and good quality mutually exclusive? Bimi Kaiho proves that that’s a falsehood. It’s a very small Japanese restaurant which has made a loyal group of followers happy for many years. When I was there, the place was packed and there were a few tables of Japanese customers—always a good sign to me.I came with cha soba and unagi in mind so ordering was a no-brainer. No idea whether it’s a mind trick cuz I miss soba so much, but I find the cold cha soba here really good! Firm textur
I came with cha soba and unagi in mind so ordering was a no-brainer. No idea whether it’s a mind trick cuz I miss soba so much, but I find the cold cha soba here really good! Firm texture and wonderfully refreshing. A generous slab of grilled unagi with sweet tamago made up the other half of my simple yet almost-perfect (if only the eel was more tender…) meal ($17++ with rice, otherwise it’s $22++ with soba instead).
There’s many different types of bentos on the menu and the friend made a right choice with the saba/salmon teriyaki bento ($16++) cuz the grilled mackerel was deliciously moist!
With such affordable pricing, I certainly didn’t expect world-class Japanese cuisine and Bimi Kaiho didn’t pretend to serve that either. But for simple, homecooked food with prices that won’t hurt the wallet, Bimi Kaiho will do nicely.
