First of all, the place looks really nice and sophisticated. Great place to catch up with friends. I ordered the Unaju, which is grilled fresh-water eel on rice. The eel was excellent, very flavorful, fresh, and tender, but could have been better if they had served it with Japanese rice (I guess the absence of Japanese rice is due to the limited resources in the province so it's ok). We also had the salmon sashimi which was also very fresh. As for the drinks, if I remember correctly, I had the pomegranate iced tea which is freshly brewed in their kitchen. Definitely something new and worth a try.Over-all it was a very very good dining experience. A++!
