A posh Japanese restaurant / 瞞著爹

This restaurant had been in my mind for quite a while before I visited it.Its name in Chinese is pretty funny, which means "hide the truth from the father."You may ask " Whose father?" If what I remember is correct, the father of the chef didn't want his son to be a chef, so when his son opened the restaurant, he hided the truth from his father. Voilà! This's the story behind the name of this restaurant.

I went to this restaurant on a windy day,but the moment I stepped inside, the chilliness vanished promptly. There was a complimentary kettle of miso soup on the table. The cozy atmosphere and the hot soup could warm you up in a short time. Besides,I'm fond of their retro decoration.It was so old-school and I felt like being brought back to decades ago.There weren't too many choices on the menu but it wasn't that important as long as each of them was good.Me and my girl friend have a thing with salmon, so both of us got a salmon donburi. That was quite nice, the fish was fresh and the rice was well mixed with vinegar, but I would prefer a cooked one rather than a raw dish. Additionally, I had an original steamed egg and I kind of regretted.I didn't regret ordering a steam egg.I just felt like I would choose other flavors. Since there was nothing but egg in the original one, it tasted quite boring.

In a nutshell, I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're finding a japanese one.Their seafood is fresh and also with a reasonable price!
