Went to this awesome Japanese restaurant which had a BYOB policy. Before we headed there, we went to a convenience store and stocked up on some beers (Magic Hat summer ale and Hoegaarden) and went to go eat!

We ordered the Tempura Platter which had eggplants, broccoli, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. It had a special soy sauce based dipping sauce which was kind of flavorless and a little bit too watery for my taste. I made my own soy sauce wasabi concoction to better compliment the dish.

The rolls we ordered, which were the california rolls and the cucumber eel rolls were nothing to complain about. Came on a very nice dish and tasted very fresh.

The highlight of the meal was definitely the outdoor setting in which we ate. It resembled a cozy backyard which felt very homey and intimate. The BYOB policy was definitely a huge plus to the overall factor of the experience. Hoppy beers go really well with sushi. Try it next time!

P.S. The color of the Magic Hat Summer Ale is gorgeous.

John and I were craving for some Japanese food and we arrived to Sake Bar Hagi only to discover that it usually opens around 5pm. It was 4pm and we were also on a time crunch so we decided to try Iroha Japanese Restaurant which was located right next door.
.
One word: mediocre. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s horrible. It was also inexpensive. We ordered warm sake and we both ended up taking quite a few shots each. John ordered the 3 sushi roll combo: California roll, spicy tuna, and eel with avocado. It also came with a small bowl of miso soup. I ordered the bowl of udon (common Japanese noodles) with tempura (deep fried seafood/vegetables) and it also came with 2 pieces of inari sushi (fried tofu stuffed with sushi rice – good for vegetarians).
.
I never had udon topped with tempura before. I would probably prefer those two things to be separate because it became extremely soggy from the broth. The broth was tasty and good enough to be consumed. The sushi rolls were also delicious but nothing special. There are definitely better Japanese restaurants than this one.
