Nakato Japanese Restaurant @ Cheshire Bridge Road

19 Sep

This past weekend, after a major win for the Yellow Jackets, the boys and I tried a new Japanese restaurant that Hoki found online.

Nakato Japanese Restaurant is divided between three different style rooms; the Teppan “Hibachi” dining room, the Tatami room (where you remove your shoes and sit on the floor), and lastly the one we dined in, the tradition style sitting room. I also noticed that they have a small side garden where you could sit outside and relax, or possibly have a drink.

Then came the main course and what could be the best thing I have eaten since Japan. It is my new obsession; hot pot, otherwise known as Shabu-Shabu.

Get ready for some action pictures of our sweet, funny, and super tiny server Moya setting up the hot pot for us.

Look at the excitement on his face!  He wasn’t the only one exited, I was too! No lie, it was the best thing ever! We ate it all and the broth was so delicious, I ended up dreaming about the broth all night and wished that I had asked our server to pack up the left over broth for me to take home.

And of course after a feast you have to order dessert to top it all off. Green tea creme brulee and ginger ice cream.

I am so happy Hoki found this place, it was the best meal ever!
