Kyara Japanese Tapas was my number one pick to have a little dinner with my friends during my birthday weekend. I wouldn't have remembered this place if it weren't for them. A friend had suggested to eat Japanese food and another suggested to eat Spanish tapas. Since I like both foods, Kyara came to mind! I knew Kyara would be a great pick because their foods are served in small servings and since the prices are reasonable, my friends and I could order a lot and try each other's dishes:
|We were all given a complimentary salad while we were ordering.
|I think this was ahi... The sauce that came with was nice!
|Motsu ni- pork intestine stew. The meat came in thin cube like strips (my first time seeing them in that form).
|Gingko nuts- They may look wet in appearance, but the gingko nuts
tasted dry on the inside and had a bold flavor.
|YuDofu- A tofu soup with ponze. I didn't expect the big cubes of tofu to fill me up the fastest!
|Ika butter- stir fried squid with butter
|Tofu steak- Somewhat the shape of a steak, but not a steak!
|Butabara- pork belly (Tare/Shio)
|Shiitake- these mushrooms had a nice, thick flesh.
|Garlic potato- deep fried potato with garlic butter. This is a great dish for all you potato lovers.
|Tsukune- ground chicken and pork (Tare/Shio)
|Spicy salmon donburi- They meshed a lot of salmon into that small bowel!
|Cold soba noodles- These were under the shime section (foods that you should eat last), they hit the spot! The noodles was cold to the point that they were soothing while eating them.
|Tofu mousse- Homemade vanilla tofu mousse. This dessert was a surprise to me. It may look like just a regular tofu, but its actually sweet!
|Vanilla ice cream with homemade green tea syrup- The waiter had poured the syrup onto the ice cream in front of me, what a great presentation! Well you can't see the design now that the ice cream has melted...
