The Japanese restaurant was newly opened, taking over the space formerly occupied by Popular bookshop. There was quite a list of items on the menu but there was no kid's meal for the little one. The wet tissue on the table was chargeable. Order was taken through ipad on the table. One had to walk to the cashier to make payment. Green tea was chargeable at $1.20++ and refillable, although it was a tab difficult to get the staff to refill during the peak dinner hour.Truffle Chasyu & Hijiki Soba ($
Chasyu & Hijiki seaweed salad with cold soba & truffle sesame sauce
Smelt strongly of truffle oil when served. The sauce was a tab watery. The noodle was cold and refreshing. The dish was served with 3 pieces of chashu (braised pork belly).
Tara & Salmon Nabe ($14.80++)
Japanese Cod Fish & Salmon Hot Pot
The hotpot did not come with rice. The pot was way too small and the soup got overflowed easily when cooking over the hot stove. There was choice between miso, shoyu, and spicy miso. Selected miso which tasted not bad. Shirasu & Kani Tappuri Kaiso Salad ($12.80++)
Steamed Baby Sardine, Crab Flake, Japanese Seaweed, Onsen Tamago & Fresh Vegetables
Served with 2 choices of dressing which I selected Sushi Tei and sesame dressing. The sushi tei dressing was mustard in color and tasted slightly spicy. The salad itself was quite refreshing. Truffle Kani Roll ($12.80++)
Fried Crabmeat & Shiitake Sushi Roll with Tanuki & Truffle Oil
Smelt nice of the truffle oil. The combination was not bad with crunchy crispy crust but felt a tab too oil after a few more mouthfuls.
