If you ever make it to this place and you like oysters, you NEED to order them on the half shell. They are not always available but when they are, pounce on them. Seriously! They are just amazing! Truly a work of art. An order is 2 pieces so this photo is 2 orders. Trust me, really good stuff!
House salad and soup that comes with some of the entree orders. The salad is good compared to other places and the little soup is really flavorful. It is quite good.
This is the Steak/Chicken Teri-yaki combo that my Sweetie always orders. He is not very adventurous when it comes to food so he likes to stick with the very basic. As you can see, there is quite a bit of food there, even for him. :)
I ordered the Tempura Udon with the tempura on the side. I do this so that it does not get all soggy in the soup. I don't know if that is how you are meant to eat it but I don't like it soggy. Just me?
The broth is good and the noodles are like any other udon. There is nothing extraordinary about this but I also have no complaints either. This is just a simple soup and it is good for what it is. They also make a very good Nabeyaki.
Sister K ordered this sashimi salad. She said it was very good. The fish is very fresh here so I imagine that assessment to be accurate. ;)
Spicy tuna hand roll. Tasty!
They prepare this dish, Tako (Octopus) Sashimi, very well here. The octopus is sliced really thin and the addition of thinly sliced lemon is what sets this place apart from other places in my opinion. I like to dip a piece of the octopus with a slice of lemon into some chili sauce. You have to ask for that on the side as this is not normally eaten with chili sauce.
