Last weekend I just wanted to have something new for a change, by 'something new' I meant a new Japanese restaurant or at least the one I've never tried before. Actually, except Tetsuya I've tried most of authentic Japanese eateries in town especially the ones that score at least 7 out of 10 on the review page. So we're just wandering around the city and ended up scrolling down the menu at Takeru Japanese restaurant in Sussex street. It wasn't a disappointment but it's just an average one for me, average taste with average price and average service, umm..what else? average fusion and average dessert too. Not bad though but nothing special either.
My aburi salmon (lightly grilled salmon) served in a bowl of rice with some vegies and mayo and wasabi as dipping.

First time tried Unagi chahan (eel fried rice) topped with sesame and dried seaweed, I couldnt find a single bit of unagi meat on my rice, so where did the unagi go?

The Omurice (omelet rice) sauce tastes more like a spaghetti for me even (again) not bad though.
