So I was hoping that we could find a gem in Little Brook, we headed out for a drive there for Japanese food and for those who knows me, you know how much I loveeeeeeeeeee Japanese food. The drive from Yarmouth is but 25 mins, so it was definitely better than driving to Halifax for sushi, so we thought. The ambiance of the restaurant was really great, the little restaurant was nicely decorated but we had to stop at Irving to ask for directions, but silly us, it was only directly opposite Irving but there was no sign outside to show one that it was a Japanese restaurant. One way to look out for the building is that they are in the same building as Evelina’s Rappie Pie building.
Service was not bad at all, but the wait staff and the sushi chefs seems shy and so did the owner. Owner is a korean and one of the sushi chef is from Philippines I think. They were all very friendly but very shy.
We ordered miso soup first of course – and the miso soup was alright.
The seaweed salad was excellent.
Chicken tempura for Chloe was a little on the dry side but I can’t really blame them because we didn’t want any sauce to go with it. Chloe didn’t eat it of course and I ended up eating the salad only.
I ordered some Unagi (eel) roll to try first.
And H ordered a sashimi combo.
This is part of the sashimi combo.
I ordered some salmon sashimi and maguro and both came frozen, I wasn’t really too please with the taste at all. But having said that I remember now that Korean Japanese sashimi came in this way when I visited Seoul.
And a matcha ice cream with fried banana was yummy. The damage was like $142 tips included for 2 adults, which seems a little pricey in my humble opinion. Would I go back again? of course but I would probably order different things to try.
