Can you say LUNCH omakase??? Second time that I’ve been to Japonais Bistro and I have to say, it is definitely growing on me. Really down to earth restaurant with delicious food (although be prepared to wait). It’s all about quality over quantity, err’day.
Anyways, we went for lunch on a Tuesday and all three of us decided to get the lunch omakase ($20/person). So instead my usual ramblings and excess overwriting, I’ll let the pictures do the talking (everything was top notch).
As you can see, there was a variety of items to devour : – Miso soup to start – not too salty. Perfect way to start our meal off on a cold September day.
– Rice and seaweed salad – I could eat this seaweed salad all day
– Chicken karaage – crunchy, perfectly fried and tender/moist in the inside
– Salmon and tuna sashimi – nice edible sizes. Tasted very fresh.
– Oysters – not sure exactly what kind they were but they were slightly on the sweeter side.
– Salmon collar – cooked perfectly and very tender
– Tuna tataki – came with with roasted garlic pieces and red onions
– Seafood ceviche – pieces of octopus, shrimp and fish. Couple of chips to eat the ceviche with. Om nom nom.
Japonais Bistro is a solid, solid spot just west off the downtown core. Definitely a great spot to check out and a classy atmosphere to boot.
