So, can you imagine our excitement when we happened to walk pass this Japanese restaurant while on our way for our French food (previous post)? We almost wanted to walk straight into the Jap place and cancel our reservation at the French place! Oh boy, that's so unclassy, but that was how tempted we were!!!!
Each time we go back to Singapore, our first meal is always Sushi Tei. This time round in June won't be much different, I suppose.
Oh boy. That salmon sashimi dish was beyond mouth-watering!!! So much salmon for only 14€!I took a pix of that green tea, because its only in Europe that you find green tea from a packet at a Jap. restaurant! I miss my freshly-brewed green tea! And the prawns were grilled over open fire!!!
To compare, we paid 85€ at the French restaurant and 45€ at this Japanese restaurant at Strasbourg. Our last visit to the über-expensive place in Stuttgart left us with 70€ less! ....Now can you understand why we're swooning over this place?
And the ambience of the restaurant was even nice too!
Guess what the funny thing was? I thought that the waitresses were Japanese so we tried to converse in English at first. However, they couldn't speak English so Stephan tried in French. After a few tries, I realized that they were speaking Chinese! So I happily placed our orders in Chinese. Who would have known that not German, not English but Chinese would help me to be understood in a place like Strasbourg in Europe!!!! Wahhahahahah.
We didn't have problems understanding the menu because they had English words as well as detailed pictures. However, it was still good to have a medium of communication when making special requests like extra spoons.
That's Salmon Sashimi heaven....! About 14€.
