NOGATA: Nogata Bánh Mì Sweet Home Salad... Newly Opened and Bánh mì was rather good! (Sony RX100)

On my evening walk and saw a very rare sandwich in Japan... I absolutely love Vietnamese Bánh mì sandwiches!  When vacationing in Hawaii I always goto Ba-Le sandwich shops to get my fix. 

So many vegetable selections... 

Everything looked so fresh!

This place had about 5 staff members... they must be doing very well during Covid19

Pork or Chicken pate Bahnmi... Half Bahn Mi and soup combo`s available.  The friendly cashier mentioned this shop opened 4 months ago and started serving sandwiches about 2 months ago.

Point card system...

REMEMBER! In certain prefectures Paypay is offering 20-30% point back!  My bill with tax was 734 yen and will get refunded 220 yen! Not too shabby!

This definitely had potential! French bread was crispy, the pate flavorful and the pickled carrots had a nice sweetness to them.  If only they added more veggies... it was rather on the light volume side.

NAKAMURABASHI: Don Mar`s (Maru) Sasafune for a very reasonable 540 yen Tuna Bowl aka Kaisendon! Newly Opened! (Lumix TZ60)

I`m a huge fan of Hawaiian Style Poke Bowls but rarely do you find it served in Tokyo... so the next best option are these seafood rice bowls aka Kaisendon.

No English available so try your best to point at the fully pictured menu. 

SOOOO Many options... only 540 yen.

Yup... the Special Zukemaguro Toro Bowl is all me... pre-seasoned tuna.

Todays special seafood

Don`t forget when using Paypay at select restaurants in Nerima-ku you will get 20% back!  Paid 540 yen and got back 108 yen!

Look at that maguro color!

There were some white connective tissue in the tuna slices but tender enough to bit into.  Texture of the tuna was not mushy and very good for only 540 yen.

The Negitoro... diced tuna with green onion nice! Just mix in a little wasabi and add shoyu. 

Rice was a bit on the tougher side.  Maybe that was intentional?

Overall you can`t really go wrong for 540 yen.  Just opened so give them a try!!

NERIMA: Chikuzenya Izakaya to check out their Shibuya Kaithong collab Khao Man Gai! Had seconds! (Sony RX100)


For a limited time they are serving Shibuya Kaithongs khao man gai!  This was the only reason I stopped by Chikuzenya Izakaya. 

Bottled Asahi Beer 580 yen... same price as the Khao Man Gai!

Khao Man Gai #1.... I couldn`t just stop at one order.

Special spicy sauce.

Khai Man Gai #2... yup I ordered a second round.  Its just so rare to find this dish in Tokyo. But! If you are in the Shibuya Ebisu area you gotta check out ---> 

Lots of Japanese oldies on the BGM.

Interesting... they didn`t serve an otoshi fee (automatic appetizer you get charged for).  Thats always a great thing as its usually a small plate of seasoned bean sprouts. 

Overall the Khao Man Gai was a bit on the dry side but I still enjoyed both plates!  Its just for a limited time so if in Nerima check it out.  Plus they have alot of Yakitori and Japanese soul food items.
