A little touch of Nippon

sashimi platter

Originally uploaded by Liangcai.

Was at the Izakaya Nijumaru Restaurant for dinner last week, and I must say that this is by far the most authentic and affordable Japanese cuisine that I’ve eaten so far. As a student I cannot afford the prices of high end hotel restaurants, so this venue suited the bill perfectly. Located in a quiet corner of town, it is almost too easy to miss.

Of special mention is the sashimi moriwase, or the assorted sashimi platter. The squid almost melts in your mouth. Upon asking one of the waitresses who worked there, the owner of this establishment imports the fresh seafood all the way from Japan, which probably explains its freshness.

For those of you who are interested in a little Japanese fare, head down to Cuppage Plaza level 2, and you’ll find it there, complete with its wooden sliding doors. Can’t miss it.
