Eating Out: Kinkaku


Category : ,

Saturday was my boyfriend's birthday, so there was ALOT of eating out over the weekend!
We decided to take a drive and try out a place I had heard about through work. We drove past and saw no one in the restaurant; generally not a good sign for me, but we decided to give it a try anyway, and were pleasantly surprised!

I liked the plate!

I decided to try a Bento Box. I had never had one before. There were three different options of the Bento Box, and all sounded delicious! I wish I could have one everyday as I loved everything in it. This one here had gyoza, Japanese springrolls, California rolls, rice, teriyaki chicken, Japanese pickles and miso soup.
( I didn't eat the pickles and I'm not a pickle fan!)

My boyfriend had the beef ramen. He said it was delicious. The funniest part was when they brought it out with a soup ladle to eat with! Stacked full of veggies, it wasn't too heavy as we didn't want to spoil our appetite for birthday dinner.... and cake!

I love Bento boxes. There is a really good place in the city called Don Dons that make a mad bento box.
I also love Gyoza, its my current obsession.
