Nagoya Steak and Sushi

Every chance we get to go out on a lunch date, hubby and I will most often choose to go to a Japanese restaurant, to take advantage of lunch deals.  The time of day one chooses to eat at a restaurant makes a lot of difference as far as price is concerned.  Dinner entrees at a Japanese restaurant are easily double the price of their lunch time counterparts.

About 3 weeks ago, hubby and I had the chance to try out a relatively new Japanese restaurant that’s just a couple of minutes drive from where we live, Nagoya Steak and Sushi.  We came for lunch and we were surprised that only about 3 tables  were occupied (and that included ours!), to think that it’s a good-sized restaurant at a very busy location.  For a brief moment, we doubted our choice of restaurant.

Hubby went for for the Ribeye Steak Hibachi Lunch, which came with choice of soup or salad , white or fried rice or, for an extra $2, noodles.

Hubby chose to have salad and fried rice with his ribeye steak.

Whatever doubts we had about our choice of restaurant vanished when hubby took a bite of his ribeye steak.  It was tender, perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned.  Two sauces were served with his lunch, one to go with the steak (mustard sauce, I believe) and another one to go with the vegetables.  The portion is just right, if not generous for a lunch time deal.

As for me, I chose the Sashimi Bento Box.  It came with a choice of soup or salad, gyoza and california roll.

Well, hello!  My lunch choice had me at hello! Hee hee. :)  Who doesn’t love a beautifully presented lunch?!  Nagoya, being a Japanese restaurant, one already expects  bento lunches that are a feast to the eyes.  I especially love that my bento box isn’t really a box but a platter of small square plates.

First up for “judgment”  was the gyoza…

I am not a huge gyoza fan.  I’ll eat gyoza but it doesn’t really rank high in my choices of Japanese food.  But I liked Nagoya’s gyoza.  I like that it is crispy and not limp and soggy. :)  I found the seasoning to be just right.  Some gyozas I’ve tasted elsewhere tend to be salty.

The california roll was sliced into 8 pieces.  I got to share some of them with hubby. :)

I saved the best for last, sashimi…

I loved every piece of raw fish sashimi in the cute little square saucer they were served in. ;)  Yum! I wanted more!!!

We can’t complain about the service.  We had a very attentive server who checked on us every now and then.

Overall, it was a very pleasant dining experience.  For sure, hubby and I will be back, perhaps, for another impromptu lunch date.

Mabuhay, y’all!
