Furusato Japanese Restaurant


I've been hearing about this restaurant from DB ever since I met him but never really had the chance to try it out until last week. Whenever I ask him what's his favorite Japanese restaurant, its always Furusato. From what I've read, this has been in existence since the 70's and is a favorite spot of both Japanese expats and locals who crave for authentic and good quality Japanese food.

Upon entering the restaurant, it felt like we were transported in the 70's, I bet no renovation or upgrade was done to the place since then! The furniture and decoration are so outdated, some almost tearing apart, and the place literally smells old.

Good thing the staff are so accommodating and nice which somehow made up for the look and smell of the place. And when I saw how DB's face lit up when he was browsing the menu, I knew he was home.

Since the main reason why we went to Furusato is for the food and not the ambiance, though it would be so much nicer to sit and dine on well-kept tables and chairs, we scanned the menu and ordered right away.

Free appetizers

DB had the Autumn Bento which consist of Cold Soba, Assorted Sushi and Sashimi.

I prefer Tanabe or Miyabi over this anytime where freshness and presentation is consistently superb.

DB's love affair with Futo Maki started at Furusato.

I, on the other hand, had Winter Bento which had Miso Soup, Rice and Sukiyaki.

Perfect meal on a cold and rainy night.

After all my ranting, it wouldn't be a surprise if we go back to Furusato within the week. As the saying goes, home is where the heart is.
