Japanese food is one of my favorites, I can never get enough of it. Unfortunately it is incredibly expensive in the US but that doesn’t stop me.
I was in New York last week for two days and grabbed lunch with a friend. This little japanese place on 49th street in between Lexington and 3rd Ave is real authentic and welcoming. This eel rice plus sashimi set was 17 dollars before tax and tip. Pricy but worth it for the amount and quality of food.
