They finally opened to the public today and I just couldn’t wait… What a meal! Go check them out before the big crowds discover them. Good food; reasonable prices; friendly staff. Menu consists mostly of very inexpensive a-la-carte items - perfect if you like to try lots of small items.

I had an assortment of wonderful small grilled skewers: Shitake ($2), Lamb ($3), Pork Cheek ($3), Chicken Liver ($2), Chicken Thigh ($3). I could have happily stopped here, but I kept on going…

Gyoza pork dumplings ($6), Udon soup ($7; I bet the noodles were homemade – excellent.) and Grilled Mackerel ($7). Washed it off with bottomless cup of Japanese tea ($2) and unfiltered sake ($6? forgot the brand, but I liked it.) Would have liked some desert to wrap it up with but, well - it's their first day. I am told that some good ice-cream is on the way…

I will be back very soon. [Biwa 503.239.8830. 215 SE 9th . Corner of Ash St. Same building as Simpatica]
