Hi Everyone,

Back with a quick blog about this Japanese restaurant located in Richmond in the Continental Plaza. Continental Plaza is filled with different varieties of food but this Japanese restaurant is legitimately opened by Japanese people. Love the decor in there. The walls are filled with Japanese words & painted drawings of fish. The vibe of the design really makes me feel like I'm eating somewhere in Japan. On their television screen, they play Japanese shows. Me & Phil were watching a donburi eating contest..and I must say..those Japanese people can eat ALOT of donburi..

The restaurant is very small so I don't recommend large parties to go there unless you tell them in advance. We were seated near the entrance so the cold air coming in when people open the door was definitely the down fall of our corner seat. The service is decent, we were constantly getting refills for our tea, which i love the fact that I don't need to wave them down to ask them!

Phil ordered the Ebi Tempura Bakkake Udon with Egg (Approx. $11-12).
He thought this dish could use a bit more seasoning or sauce. The udon's were simply just too plain. He had to add the tempura sauce on top of the udon's to give it more flavour.

I ordered the Seafood Donburi. (approx. $11-12)
This dish consists of tuna, salmon, ikura, squid, prawn, octopus, shimesaba, fishcake, surfclam, fried egg & rice. The fish was very fresh and the combination of all these different types of seafood in to one dish was just amazing. This was super flavorful and I enjoyed every bite of it!

Service: 3.5/5

Food: 3.5/5

Price: $-$$

Overall Rating: 3.5/5

Happy eating!
