Hubby had read about this place near our hotel that was popular for miso soup and homecooked style food, so off we went for dinner. We were quite lucky as we managed to get the last table 🙂
Everyone were having miso soup, and while there were many types available, we chose the more popular ぶた汁 pork miso soup.
We randomly picked some of the dishes that we fancied from what we saw. Most of the food were delicious, and made us feel like we were at home 🙂 However, the egg plant really left its imprints in our minds because it was so, so unexpectedly salty. So salty that it became our benchmark for saltiness throughout the remaining trip… Nothing else could beat it, not even pickles!

There was a new kid on the block and we decided that the other Japanese restaurant, Fukuyichi, was probably not going to close down anytime soon, since it had been around for quite some time already… So it was Kaiware for us!
Needed to go Orchard for an escape game in the afternoon, so we stopped by Sumiya Charcoal Grill Izakaya because we didn’t managed to dine here the last time.
This restaurant belongs to the RES Group, the same group that also owns Ichiban Sushi, Shimbashi Soba and the whole lot of 10 Japanese restaurants (Shokutsu 10) in nex. We thought we would be able to use our Ichiban rewards card but we can’t; they have their own rewards card. 🙂
The deco is quite modern with high tables and chairs which are not typical of Japanese restaurants.
As part of the welcome (and farewell, I guess) a waitress will strike a drum whenever customers enter (or leave) the restaurant. It actually startled us because there wasn’t a lot of customers at this time when we were there. Haha…
