Kushi Box Japanese Charcoal BBQ Review

Sam Salmon | Mar 5, 2010 09:13 PM

NOTE-I'm no big fan of BBQ'ed food-Please don't hate me but it's never my first choice.

Anyway had lunch @ this tiny spot today-after hearing about Japanese Charcoal BBQ I wanted to see if it was any different.

Happy to report that the food is delicious and not gritty burnt tasting just cooked over quite a hot grill that does an outstanding job without ruining the flavour.

I had the veggie special #6 (Grilled tofu & mushroom on rice w/ teriyaki sauce) it was delicious cooked in record time and served in an iconic paper takeout box-that and a side order of Goma-ae that had a Oil/Vinegar/Pepper dressing quite unlike any Spinach Goma-ae I've ever-had quite a toothsome side order.

Did I mention hot?

I mean it's steaming hot inside the place that's one reason it's takeout with a couple tables out front.

The Staff are quite pleasant friendly people but since it's so busy @ lunch you might want to check out the on-line menu to narrow down your choices-it's not huge menu just brightly coloured with a lot of stylish writing.

I note the presence of Takoyaki in the online menu maybe that's what I'll try next time.
