Nara Japanese Restaurant II

Fresh from the memory of a very decent meal at Nara a couple of weeks back, I revisited on a weekend evening since I had a voucher to utilize within a limited time frame.



Pitan Tofu

Let me first qualify that I am no fan of century egg so this appetiser grossed me out quite a fair bit. Chilled with a dollop of roe sitting prettily amidst a century egg gravy with bits of the egg itself, it was mildly nauseating. Definitely not my cup of tea.



Gyo Somen

One of the reasons why I returned to Nara - the Gyo Somen or fish noodles. Extremely springy noodles immersed in a lightly salty broth that drew part of its flavour from the smoked duck, which this time round was a little lacklustre in my humble opinion. Still very palatable nonetheless.



Nara Special Maki

I loved this the first time I had it. The wasabi taste was slightly stronger this time round but all in all, still good. The portions did seem a wee bit smaller though.



Bill

After a $20 voucher discount, it was down to almost $39 for 2 pax, which is still reasonable I guess. But too much of Gyo Somen can make you really sick, so I'm staying off Nara for a bit. Till next time!
