My friend L is back in town and what better way than to have a sumptuous meal together? We decided to try Yayoi, a new Japanese restaurant in town. It is a Teishoku restaurant, where Teishoku is a type of Japanese set meal, in which all of the dishes in the course are served together as a set.
For the life of me, as I’m writing this post, I can’t recall what was it that I ordered. I can’t even remember if I ordered chicken or pork! I have a feeling it was the Tonkatsu Teishoku, or Pork Loin Cutlet Set, at $15.90. Actually no. I think it was the Miso Katsu Teishoku, or Simmered Pork Loin Cutlet in Miso Paste Set, at $15.90.
The meal was truly sumptuous but perhaps it’s me who’s not quite used to thick slices of pork. The pork was really thick and juicy. Others may be pleased but strangely I’m not. There was also an empty bowl, which I wondered a lot about.
Overall the restaurant provided a cosy, peaceful ambience that was perfect for catching up with friends. There’s definitely quality in the food. I will be back for other dishes (if my wallet’s fat enough for the day).
