press the lift to 12/F and be prepared to look into this cozy japanese izakaya situated in yiu wa street. this is my second visit, don't ask me why it keeps my mom and i turning up, there's just a lot of funny moments created whenever we pay a visit.
look up and you will spot bicycles affixed as their backdrop. don't know what they meant to the owners but they must be the most iconic props. the calm ambience at 6:00,, hker posters as boards for distancing and its semi-open kitchen are such remedies.
as japanese is one of my favourite cuisines, of course i HAVE to get the rolls to satisfy my sushi crave. and yes, i got the exact two rolls i've had before. tbh i don't see much difference between them, but i myself prefer the 𝗕𝗿𝘂𝗰𝗲 𝗟𝗲𝗲 𝗥𝗼𝗹𝗹 than the 𝗥𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗯𝗼𝘄 𝗥𝗼𝗹𝗹. if you're planning a visit and favour crabs, then opt for the former. if you tend towards shrimps, then go for the latter.
i opted for a string of 𝗧𝗲𝗿𝘆𝗮𝗸𝗶 𝗘𝗲𝗹 which comes in 3 parts, saucy and juicy. just be careful with the occasional popups of tiny bones. 𝗧𝘂𝗻𝗮 slices are thick and meaty, truly lives up to the name "steak of the sea".
also recommending their sashimi rice and eel bowls with hearty and fresh ingredients. definitely revisiting, thanks to the owner for taking care of my macbook and camera lens for days!
