Trattoria Nakamura-Ya was the first Japanese Italian fusion place I went to (finally!). Other than the photos of the menus you see here, there was also a board listing the entrees. Its a small restaurant so I had a nice intimate dinner with my ladies. I was glad it wasn't a loud place so we didn't have to talk over other people's chattering or music!
There were many unique items on the menu, which made it a bit hard to choose something! In my opinion the entrée that stood out the most was the Uni & Tomato Cream Pasta, just because I've never seen uni come with a meal before! Even though that dish was tempting I got a gnochii pasta dish with tuna instead. I missed gnochii so I had to get it!
While we waited for our foods we were served buns. If you can imagine Olive Garden's bread (except it not being buttery) having a baby with an Asian steamed bun, thats what Nakamura-Ya's buns tasted like!
|Since I'm trying to eat more vegetables when I eat out, I got the Grilled Vegetables Bagna Cauda Style- These fresh vegetables were topped with this light Italian fondue-creamy like sauce.
|Nessa was on a high protein diet so she got the Kobe Skirt Steak

|Soy Milk Panna Cotta w/ "Okinawa Black Sugar" Sauce - The name itself explains how great this dessert was!
