Nanbantei Japanese Restaurant #2
#05-132, Far East Plaza
After the service, Jialing and I took a bus down to town for lunch. I was thrilled when she suggested Nanbantei as I had a wonderful meal here the last time I was here. Even though I don't eat rice, I ordered the Salmon Shioyaki set ($10.40++) as it's better value for money than the ala carte menu. The grilled salmon was definitely the star: plump and juicy with crispy skin. Absolutely delicious! I finished everything but the bowl of rice was left completely untouched.
Jialing had the signature Yakitori Obento ($12.50++) which was quite a feast for the eyes with 5 assorted yakitori. I tried the quail egg which had a smokey flavour and was very bouncy. The set came with a red bean paste dessert which was great but Jialing didn't like.
From the ala carte menu, we had the Pork with Leek ($5.70++) which Jialing recommended. I didn't have the meat but the charred leek was good!
I wanted to have the shishamo initially but being fickle minded, I had it changed to Unagi with Long Onions ($5.80++) at the last minute. This is my favourite! The grilled eel was so soft and smooth that it almost slid down the throat.
