Yumei - Capitol Square, Haymarket

In a bid for a quick lunch before the movies, Yumei is instantly thought of, as it is never crowded and relatively quick.

Menu time

As I've said before, I profess my love for picture menus, however sometimes they can work against you...

Complimentary cold noodle dish, this is the first time I've received a free starter at a Japanese restaurant!

Grape Calpico

Salmon aburi - not as nice as I previously remembered, I was missing the chargrilled taste that I've come to be addicted to!

Crab croquettes - these were nice, deep fried with creamy mashed potato inside, couldn't detect any "crab" at all, but then again, I wasn't expecting to

Grilled cheese scallops - Back to the menus... These look nothing like they were meant to, and were quite disappointing! The menu didn't show a massive mound of rice under the scallop, and plus these were barely warm when we received them

Wagyu beef kushiyaki


Overall not the best Japanese place compared to the other yummy places available, but it's not bad, and you are basically always guaranteed a spot without a wait (my pet hate when dining is having to wait ages in line!)

Lorraine - I love them too, it's just a bit disappointing when they are inaccurate!

Lily - I think so, I remember seeing a Korean restaurant next door.

$3 beers sounds pretty awesome (if I drank beer!) I've never received the complimentary dish before!
