I'm a big fan of the silky, house made soba noodles that Shimbashi is known for and now that they're in my 'hood in the old Huxtable premises, life is complete!
We had lunch there today and with the heat and the sunshine, it was a great choice.
Steve and I shared a small salmon sashimi and the gyoza to begin with. Service was super prompt and with a smile and the food arrived darn quick too. Both dishes were good executions of the classics. The gyoza had a lovely crispy brown top and the dipping sauce had a good tang to it.
Steve had the teriyaki chicken set lunch which is a small bowl of teriyaki chicken on rice and a plate of either warm or chilled soba noodles. He went with chilled and thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was a tasty lunch that feels light on the tummy but satisfies the tastebuds. Welcome to the neighbourhood Shimbashi. We're going to be great friends.
