Bishoku - Jap Tapas

you guys kno me, i'm always on the hunt for great bites again when we stumbled onto this hidden restaurant. okay so i kinda exaggerated when i said "hidden"..but it was really in the back of a strip mall tho! when we saw the name, we knew it was a jap joint. so why not try? WE LOVE JAP FOOD anyways! as we walk in to view the menu, we were greeted by the owner, jackie. she shook our hands & welcomed us in. lemme tell you. this place is SMALL! although it does have a nice feel and soothing atmosphere. it wasn't like any typical jap restaurant either. it was a tapas restaurant. for the interior, i would give it a 8.5 out of 10. food quality is 8.5/10 as well. food quantity would be 7/10. i understand it is a tapas place..but the portions a tad smaller than typical tapas. well anyways, i kno you all are wanting to kno what we ordered.


bryant ordered asahi. they served us draft. so thumbs up for that.
as for food, we both love unagi don (bbq eel on top of sushi rice) and agedashi tofu.. so of course, we ordered those 2.. along with rice balls too.
we couldn't try a lot of dishes since the both of us weren't so hungry; but anyways
here are some pictures of the table settings & food:

rice balls
 ehh. not thing special. was disappointed. i've had MUCH better. this one was literally only rice & pan friend or smthing..there was no flavor or anything. 

agedashi tofu
it was decent. this was a very small portion. they basically cut half of a normal portion! the also didn't put enough sauce (which is what makes the flavor!)

unagi don
this was the best out of the 3. although i don't really like restaurants that use the "bone in" unagi. also, bishoku unagi was kind of slimy. too much skin =/ i would have to say their rice was good tho. it wasn't like typical rice that rests. normally serve with this certain dish. it had great flavor to it. i noticed they had dry seaweed or smthin mixed. so perhaps they mix their own seasonings of some sort with the rice.
