This place describes their food as authentic Japanese food with a hint of Cajun spice. That intrigued me, so I put it on my list of restaurants I wanted to try some time back. Then last night I saw a glowing review of it online, which pushed me to get in here today for lunch.
As soon as I walked in I stepped into the bathroom to wash my hands and immediately saw the sign in the 3rd picture above. I have no idea how they knew I was coming in today!
Anyway, we decided on:
### THE FOOD ###
The Cajun Fries with pink sauce were delicious! I’m a fry purist. I like my fries plain with just a little salt and maybe some black pepper sprinkled on them. I absolutely detest battered fries. But even though these looked kind of like those they weren’t at all. Thick cut, crisp, and just seasoned really well. Not overly spicy or anything. And I have no idea what that pink sauce consisted of but it was good.
The Yakiniku po-boy came with carrots on it. I don’t like carrots so I started to ask them to leave them off, but I wanted to try the sandwich as it was intended to be. I was assuming they were shredded carrots, but they were chunky carrot sticks. I did end up removing them.
The sandwich was delicious! The thin sliced ribeye was unbelievably tender and flavorful. And I had never heard of Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise, but you could taste there was just the right amount of a good mayo on it.
My dining partner had the Yakisoba. She was feeling benevolent today and let me have a taste! The noodles were cooked perfectly and there was plenty of meat in it. Very good!
I had the ramen. The broth was fantastic. Even during the heat of our New Orleans summers I could eat this every day.
Great place. I highly recommend it!
