Kanji Japanese on Kingsway @ Wednesday, January 18, 2017
Friday 23rd December
If you're not a fan of asian there's not much left on main street, there sous but they were closed, mocha joes for average expensive modern Australian and the most popular place in town - royal stacks. But I'm not a burger person, I'm a sugar addict and bento person.
Since we were last here a Japanese place has popped up! Kanji Japanese. They don't have calpis though or any Japanese sodas. With the other dinners it didn't feel authentic as Shyun does.
Located upstairs it's probably not wheelchair friendly (the dr doesn't need to know, but it does hurt). Lately we've been in a wheelchair, the struggle is real. How do wheelchair people live? How do they go places/shop?
I love pictures in the menu!
There's a few tables at the front with views of the strip, but more at the back including group tables! Pictures down below. I hate back lighting, it ruins everything in most cases, like when you focus on shadows.
We ordered the teriyaki beef bento $15 with came with karrage chicken, sushi rolls, a garden salad, tamego slice and seaweed salad. It didn't come with a miso to start which was strange?
It came with karrage chicken (kewpie mayo on request) and mini salmon rolls as an entree. The egg pieces were tiny, whoops we were suppose to finish off with those, but accidentally ate them at the start, failed to identify them. There was both a seaweed salad and garden minus tomato with a light honey mustard dressing.
The teriyaki beef was slightly smoky with a sweet lingering taste from the caramelized onions. I love white rice! It was flavourous but wasn't too sweet or salty.
More tables out back.
Service was minimal but friendly, with O.o looks with the camera.
For $15 we're happy, standard price minus one miso.
Who does your favourite bento? For us it's Shyun.
