Located on Changle Road inside an office building doesn’t sound attractive until you step in and take a glance to the bar full of homemade jars of Japanese pickles, teas, fruits and so on. Basically it takes me back to that comfort food that my grandma could make, full of love. This place is one of my favorite modern Japanese because you will absolutely find culinary dedication and fine flavors all over the menu and the dishes. The menu covers a wide range of Japanese cuisine in a very delicate way: from Japanese sandwiches, Japanese hotpot, katsu don, donburi, omurice, tempura, udon, soba, to a lot more options to dig in. We were two and we had a huge variety to share. The best, in my opinion, were the mackerel sandwich -so delicious that I could have a dozen easily-, the waygu beef curry udon –out of this world- and the fried chicken with a chilly sauce. Quiet vibe, friendly environment and decent prices will invite you to come back. If you are looking for a delicate meal and you really like Japanese food, then this is the place to visit for sure.
