When on holidays, I eat even more than I do at home. We found ourselves walking out of a coffee shop and straight into Hime Sushi for no good reason but to eat. Once we got seated, we had to pay for more parking. It really wasn’t a big deal as parking was relatively cheap compared to home!
We sat down and I knew I wasn’t hungry but wanted to try their Okonomiyaki which was a street food pancake Japanese style with vegetables and seafood! It was huge and fresh!!
From there, being the indecisive person I am, we just ordered their Deluxe Sushi Platter and it was amazing! I wasn’t feeling great that day, in fact most of that trip I was actually very sick – but the food was still so tasty!
Everything here was sweet and fresh! It was magnificent and even while being ill the food and service was extremely memorable. I enjoyed myself tremendously here and I wouldn’t mind going back given the oppertunity!
I’m actually very confused about the name of this restaurant, but the name on the recipet says the restaurant is called Ramen Bar at NanChuu Japanese Izakaya, however it seems to be called G-men and you don’t see that name as the “dominate” name.
We were brought here by my sister-in-law and her husband, and this place was pretty decent! We started with some Gyozas which as usual, is my dish to order when I’m in the mood for appetizers at a Japanese restaurant. The skin here was really thin, and the filling was amazing! They pan-fried it to perfection!
The other appetizer we ordered was something I’ve never had before, and they call it Okonomiyaki which is Japanese Cabbage Pancake, which is shredded cabbage mixed into a batter and made into a “pancake”. The toppings here was pretty basic as I believe it was just bonito flakes! The dish was pretty amazing and it’s going to be something I’ll order more often!
For ramen, I ordered their Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen and this bowl of ramen is massive! It’s got lots of everything, so make sure you come with an empty belly!
We also ordered their Dan Dan Men which didn’t cross my mind as a japanese dish, as I’ve always associated as Chinese or Sichuan. But, regardless, we ordered a bowl, and it was full of flavour and spice! It was different from what I associate Dan Dan Mein to be, but it was a nice change from typical Ramen – although we were at a ramen place!
Overall, an amazing place! The place is pretty busy and pretty small, so be prepared to wait! But, it really helps build up your appetite as you wait so you can finish everything! Food is quite good, and the prices are very good too!
