I had an apointment with my uncle the other night, and it turned into a dinner with him, my aunt and my three cousins at the new Japanese restaurant Marufuku.
The sign on the front door said “Soft opening”. Which I guess means they’re still ironing out hiccups in the operation. The staff didn’t do so badly — one of them served the salmon sushi claiming it was the sashimi, but other than that, we got decent service. The food was excellent. I had the seafood and vegetable ramen and the salmon sashimi.
I did get to try some other dishes the others ordered. I wasn’t able to take note of all their names, though. This one’s a kind of sushi, but everything was cooked.
One thing I liked was the interiors. And the fact that you had a full view of the work being done in the kitchen — could see the chefs and cooks prepare the food while you ate. I didn’t get to take photos of that, but I’m sure I’ll be back pretty soon with a camera and my appetite.
