Musha - Less is More Delicious

I felt so fortunate that one of my friends recommended me to this Izakaya style Japanese joint coz' it's SMOKIN'! From their cold dish to the Shichirin grilled dish, Musha consistently bring the best stuffs to the table. Although this place is always jam-packed, I was delighted that finally there's a good Izakaya place that we can RESERVE, jeez...

OK, no further due, let me break it down what made Musha an Izakaya restaurant at its finest:

Aburi Saba a.k.a seared Saba - You'll watch a torching experience. the taste? DAYYYUMM! fresh Saba vinegar marinated melt in your mouth leaving salty, crispy, smokey Saba skin at end.
Cheese Tofu - mozzarella cheese, soy milk, cottage cheese, and cream cheese might not sound like a good combo, but mixed together as a spread on top of baguette or crackers, pour a little bit of honey from the honeycomb stick - you get a kick ass appetizer. You can ask for extra crackers too.

Negitoro Tuna Croquette and Kabocha Pumpkin croquette - both are very yummy fillings and oh I love how crunchy they are!
Tanshio - thinly sliced and tender beef tongue grilled on tiny tabletop grill. The only bad thing about this meal is I can't get enough of them!

Takotama - It's a house special dish. It's a finely stacked scrambled egg, octopus, fried noodle, mushroom, onion drenched in mayo. Highly recommended!

Cheese Risotto and Spicy Tuna Dip weren't too striking. Although the way they prepare the risotto was interesting, a handful of creamy risotto being tossed in a gigantic block of Parmesan cheese, but the taste wasn't spectacular.

Oh, I can't wait to go back and tried every single dish on their menu. I heard their pork belly is a must try!
