This Japanese takeout spot was recommended to me by a friend. And it's exciting because again it's located in the neighbourhood where good food is hard to find. I didn't really do my research before hitting it up so went with what she recommended, the teriyaki chicken box. I walked into this hole in the wall spot and ask the lady working there what the best thing on the menu was and she replied "the wings" of course! This was the first time that I haven't followed the advice of anyone Japanese... big mistake! (NB. You can always trust a Japanese person when they tell you what's best : ) The teriyaki chicken was tasty enough (and sadly I am eating at my desk) but luckily my workmate also got a small order of the wings for us to try and they were AMAZING! They had a strong black pepper taste with a sweet sesame flavour. Once I finished eating, I researched online and found out from all the reviews that this is the place for wings, so I am definitely going back for the wing lunch special! Also you get a free cold tea of your choice (green, jasmine, hochicha, black or oolong) included with the lunch special! .....Itadakimasu!
