Regent place is a hive of activity since all the new restaurants have opened. One of the latest places that I was keen to try was Yebisu Izakaya, another Japanese restaurant addition, in the location where Azuma Kushiyaka used to be.
It's the opening week and the crowds are already amassing and it's about a ten minute wait for a table at the long bar area, overlooking the kitchen.
The ordered system is via a touch screen ipad. I like this as it means I can browse as quick or long as I want, and there's pictures too.
Yebisu is also home to a good range of craft beers and sake.
I was super intrigued about this tom yum goong sushi roll, but alas, was not game enough to give it a go.
Lotus root chips
One of my favourite snacks to have with drinks are lotus root chips. Moreish, though I did wish they were a tad crispier.
Tempura white tail
Chicken tsukune with poached egg
Yebisu has an abundance of yakitori on their menu, and these chicken meatballs are tasty, especially dunked into the side dish of runny poached egg.
Yebisu's omurice was disappointing as it was just essential a bowl of rice with filling and an omelette placed on top.
These were tasty and I'd have to say that I think the skewers are probably the best thing I tried on the menu. I wasn't at all impressed with my visit to Yebisu. Perhaps this has to do with the dishes ordered, but I do think there are a lot of better options out there.
