Wabi Sabi Salon - Great Japanese on Smith St!
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.
