So I’ve tried Japanese food now. Took Anthony out.
Well we did it and this is what we had.
We started it
off with Yakitori. It wasn’t too expensive and we both wanted to try
it, so I went ahead and got it. They brought us out a salad, and miso
soup, which there was no charge for. I was quite suprised. The dressing
on the salad was strange and a bit strong but good. The miso soup was
tolerable, but I will never eat tofu again, no flavor, disgusting
texture. The soybean paste kept settling and made it look really
unappatizing, so we didn’t eat much of that, but gave it it’s fair
chance. The Yakitori was delicious. It almost had a vegitable flavor to
it. I’m assuming it was grilled with them. But it was very enjoyable.We
also ordered a sashimi platter. Three of each, tuna, salmon, and some
white fish. It came without the rice and we were both a little confused
but they brought the rice out a little later. I’ve only tried it once
before myself so I wasn’t really sure I would care for it. The texture
was offputting, so I used my
chopsticks to make the fish smaller because it was a little slimy to
have so much. The biggest thing is that it lacks flavor. We weren’t
very impressed with it. I now love wasabe though, This place had a real
kind, little bit on the tongue and bam your nose is open, then seconds
later the spice is gone. It was pretty freaking amazing. I’m in love
with that stuff, I wanna put it on everything! lol.
Miso soup, and salad
Our platter minus the tuna, that was the white fish, not sure what kind it is.
For our main course I ordered Yaki Soba noodles with beef, and he
ordered pork Tonkatsu. I loved mine, he did too, we picked off of
eachothers. It looks a bit strange but it’s very delicious, the flavors
blend so well and the noodles are just tasty. His Tonkatsu, also
delicious, it has a texture you’d never expect, kind of flaky and
crunchy, the sauce that was there to dip it in tasted kind of like a
sweet steak sauce. I was really put over the top by it.
Yaki Soba, I believe this is chicken but you get the idea.
Two of those served with a large pile of vegtibles that seemed to be steamed.
At the end they brought us something really neat. I wish I had a
picture. It was a sculpted orange, four orange peices in a circle kind
of in a bowl made out of the peel with a toothpick stuck in one of the
orange peices. It was so orange and pretty. It really brought
I was really impressed with the price as well. We got all that for 33 dollars. To me that seemed to be a really good deal.
The atmosphere of the place was amazing too. The place is called Kato
it’s on barry road. Very gorgeous layout, the dishes were even
beautiful. I really enjoyed myself.
So my experience with Japanese food so far has been a pleasant one, I
plan on trying more in the future as well as foods of other cultures. Hopefully Anthony will try them with me!
