Where to go for lunch on Smith St? So many choices. Wabi Sabi Salon is an award winning Japanese Restaurant that offers great value. Walk in to a dimly lit longish and narrow establishment featuring interesting use of wood (check out the beams). Funky Japanese artwork on the walls. Has a cool ambience.
The sushi looked great – and is a popular take away for lunchgoers. But I was always going to go for the lunch box. Exceptional value for great Japanese food. Loved the lunch bento box with terriyaki chicken – it was amazing. Some quality Japanese rice and Japanese salad plus pickled vegetables and excellent chicken. Have to say Japanese food fills me up but I never feel heavy for the afternoon shift back at the office.
I'm not sure how to drink miso soup out of a bowl and looked pretty stupid holding it up to my face and slurping it everywhere. Very tricky when you’re wearing a suit and tie! Think I must lower my head closer to the table…
This place even has an outdoor garden. Took a photo of staff when paying my bill just for the blog – possibly insensitive by me as this guy looked shocked as I snapped while he handed me my change. So sorry! Love there's several great Japanese places in Smith St.
