Heard about Guu Garden for a while and didn’t have a chance to visit. So finally I paid a visit, it took me a while to find the place. It’s located along all the office buildings and on a 2nd floor. Pay close attention to a directory sign if you are driving, because you’ll definitely miss it.
When it comes to izakaiyas, it’s always more fun when you go with more people so you can order more to try. So I ordered a few things just for the two of us but here are some to note.
The BANG BANG G salad this is a pretty yummy salad. Chicken strips with cucumber and jellyfish with sesame sauce. I really liked the jellyfish chicken strip combo. It gives it a great springy chew to the whole salad with a very nicely fragrant sesame sauce.
If you have been to enough Japanese restaurants, you will notice they really like using gyu (ox) tongue. This is the first time I have eaten gyu tongue in soup with rice. I really liked the soup – oh so tasty. With strong flavour from the gyu tongue and eat with a little bit of wasabi, you just need to try. (once again only if you like eating gyu tongue.)
Fresh sashimi is a must for most Japanese places, this one you can choose a platter of three types of sashimi (anything they have) to make your own sashimi platter. The special things I noticed is the seasoned salmon – fresh salmon sashimi with pepper and salt on top. I never though of eating salmon in such a way but I totally didn’t regret it. It actually tasted pretty good like that. :)
This is a nice place to sit out on the patio on a warm day – would work great for big groups. Will revisit with a couple more friends for sure. :D
