I love discovering low key, down-to-earth restaurants that serve not too common dishes.
No frills, no frippery, just simple good food.
In Saika, I found one.
Dinner was easy, quiet, and delicious.
I had fun browsing through the menu
Pirikara Kyurino Hiyayako - tofu, cucumber and corn in a light and refreshing, slightly spicy sauce
Kani Salad - couldn't get enough of the sesame dressing
Horenso Butter Itame - didn't know spinach could taste this good
Chicken Nanban - tender and juicy, pairs very well with the creamy homemade sauce
Miso Katsu - the sweet and tangy miso cuts through the fried pork beautifully
Liver Nira Itame - highly addicting stuff!
Dragon Roll - loaded with unagi inside out
Motorola Roll - gotta love anything with Japanese mayo
Coffee Jelly - rich and sinful homemade goodness
Macchya Sharbett - sad-tasting tea-flavored ice.
Will skip this next time and order...
Macchya Flappechino and Banana Paffe :P
