If you are a regular customer of Menya Mappen, you might have noticed its new 'sister restaurant' just opened last month right next door, Oiden.
Oiden serves more rice bowls while Mappen specializes in udon and soba, they both have lots of tempting tempura and small serve of side dishes in affordable price, both offer cozy atmosphere of Japanese eateries in the 70's (or earlier?) and same great hospitality. It's a bit hard for me to choose either to go the the left side for soba or to the right one for rice bowl.
(Oiden set meal comprises rice, miso sup, pickles and coleslaw)
(Tuna tataki bowl)
(Eggplant and barramundi tempura)
