By the time we arrived in Halifax, it was almost 7.30pm and we had to look for the right street to go to my favorite Japanese restaurant in Halifax. I say my favorite .. because the owner and chef is also a Japanese .. and you can’t go wrong right..?
We ordered very quickly .. because it was quarter to 8pm .. when we arrived. But alas, they took their time to serve us the food. The sashimi came first.. but it was the udon that we wanted first.. because Chloe was very hungry. The udon only came at 8.17pm.. took half and hour for the udon to come..*slap forehead*. The sashimi was fresh .. and as usual.. the octopus was hard and chewy. But it was overall pretty good – this dish cost like $15 + tax.
The sweet potato tempura came out second.. but alas no udon still.. and chloe refused to eat the tempura.. even though she had it the last time we were up in Halifax. It was alright.. the vegie tempura - I cannot remember how much this cost.. i think $6 or $7.
Then the chicken teriyaki for the “ang moh” which was a wee bit spicy for his liking .. because of the ground pepper as you can see in the picture. Edible of course.. and the chicken was very soft. Still no udon as of yet.
Then the chawanmushi came.. and still no sign of the udon .. and when i asked for it.. they said it was coming. Not much customers by then.. so i don’t understand why the delay. Anyhow, the chawanmushi had a huge stick of imitation crab stick, vegies and a huge chunk of chicken in it. I didn’t get to eat a lot of steam egg if that is what you wanna know. But i love chawanmushi.. and will take whatever there is.
Finally the udon with chicken came.. but alas we had forgotten to tell them not to put any greens in it.. else the brat wouldn’t eat them. So while picking the greens out.. and chloe fussing because of the greens.. i ordered another bowl without the greens. Chloe loves the udon .. and the chicken was very soft.. but she only ate one piece of it.
Using chopsticks for the first time.. she did very good.. and ate the full bowl of the second bowl of noodles.. and left the first one for me. The chicken udon cost $5.50 and the plain one cost $5.00 .. hahhahaha!!
The “staff” of Dharma Sushi had requested that i not post their picture on my blog on 12 November 2009 , there was no name to the email and i was debating whether it was genuine, but why go thru’ all the trouble right..?? *shrug* .. i am wondering if they know that they already have pictures all over the internet.. that was how i found their restaurant in the first place. Anyhow, i took it down, outta not wanting to waste time on it.
It was a lovely meal.. albeit a wee bit expensive by the time we left – $60 tax and tips included. I only had green tea.. and “ang moh” had water – chloe had her own water. Dharma Sushi is located at Argle Street – Halifax. They do not open on Sundays and this is as authentic japanese food as you can get in Halifax.
