My new found love in the heart of Causeway Bay in Japanese style. It is a decent size restaurant quite a popular choice so you need to try hard to get a seat! I walked in once and they are full house. Second trial I made a booking before I jump in. But if you are keen for midnight snacks and drinks, this is also the place for you as they offer midnight meals when most had gone home and asleep!
The staff are very nice, Japanese oriented cosy friendly people. The food.....you gotta see to tell!
Whenever there is a reservation, they tailor made this menu with Japanese special dishes for the day. Such warm welcome =)
As the name suggests, their specialty are these cod roe, as the restaurant name suggests. They do offer products like this paste in a can if you wish to take them away for home made meals. When they mix the roe with potato.......it tastes something not so ordinary.....just added a bit of freshness to my liking!
Egg roll of course is another Japanese specialty, we all love these look simple but made with skills egg roll. What is hiding inside is again cod roe - a little close up below!
The mains is the cod fish itself.........they taste soft, fresh with distinctively Japanese rock salt. You could just taste it right away.
Now to this mixed rice, is more like you mixed it up with egg, raw cod fish, cod fish roe, rice plus a stash of herbs including wasabi, shallots, seseme and seaweed - you may add as much as you like it is just as to your liking. Once mixed it is served with soup, simmer the rice in the soup and you will have a very heart felt taste to this dish.
I always liked rice mixed with soup as I am lazy and I like something soupy. So here is my take on Tararanya. I love it, it does bring you something new and I am looking forward to visit them again! The manager are very nice by the way!
