Nippon Tei

Perhaps my mind is hungry. But anyway, we had dinner at Nippon Tei, which used to be a nice little Japanese place that served authentic food at reasonable prices. We found out Nippon Tei had renovated, and it's now a Tokyo cafe type place, plenty of sand-blasted glass and nifty tree patterns on more glass windows lighted up from the inside. The thing I love about Japanese restaurants; they're so sterile. Nippon Tei is still the nice Japanese place that served authentic food at reasonable prices, with an upped menu and the same Japanese owner who goes table to table greeting his customers.

Japanese food just looks teeny tiny and pretty. Teeny tiny hamster stomachs are still not big enough to handle a hefty lacquer box of Tendon, even with the help of 100 proof green tea (green tea has so much caffeine) and light miso soup to swallow it all down. Sushi is of no help whatsoever.
