I think that it was one of Cathy's posts on Sakura that mentioned it is easily the most posted about restaurant on this blog. However, my last visit, over a year ago, highlighted why I've kind of stopped coming so often, and no it isn't because they finally put up a sign after almost two decades. It was because the service there had gotten somewhat surly over the years and I kind of like to enjoy my lunch.
So, it was the recent heat that brought me back. I went for one of my hot weather favorites, the Gyokai Natto Don.
Man, when did they start giving so much rice? And what fish there was.....don't see much, do you? Was mostly a few strips of shiromi (white fish) and ika. And looks like a mere shadow of its former self. I mean, I love natto and all that; but I didn't pay $15 for natto-gohan.
The miso soup was passable; the agedashi tofu, crisp, light, and creamy.
And the service; well that hasn't gotten better.
