Our dinner here was actually before we finally got a chance to taste the hainan chicken at Chincheng Street [click to see old post]. Although this time, we did suspect that the chicken place was closed on all holidays, we still wanted to give it another shot. The other half had dreamed of the chance to go to Hooters, but I had absolutely no interest in it at all! So in the end, we decided to try this Japanese place.
The menu reminds you that the sashimi rice comes with cooked rice. If you want the sushi rice in your sashimi rice, you've got to ask for it. As it was not a good idea to eat too much raw fish during pregnancy, I had to give up the idea of having an entire meal of sashimi!
But then came the challenge! I'd always order sashimi dishes whenever I could... Now that I shouldn't... what should I order?
The soy sauce and small dishes set on every table.
As I really wanted to have a few bites, we still ordered a small plate. Since the place is a franchise, there's no need to raise your expectations for it.
As long as the fish is fresh, that's more than enough. Don't expect them to have high quality wasabi.
You can enjoy all the miso soup you want. Pity I don't like miso soup.
The fried pork chop meal set of my dear husband.
It was big enough to fill his tummy. Good cost performance!
This beef dish was mine.
The taste was nice, but the texture of the meat itself was not what I had anticipated.
Every bite was a surprise - was it going to be soft and tender or chewy?? My jaws got really sore at the end! I reckon boys would enjoy it more.
Chawanmushi (steamed egg) that came with the set meal - usual standard. Nothing surprising, but not disappointing either.
And finally, dessert!
To sum up, it was not bad. We weren't expecting much to begin with, so it was difficult to be disappointed. I suppose it's a nice choice for a meal if you have no idea what else to have!
