Back to Tenhachi again. This place is so dope, I came back here because I wanted to show more people how good it is. I ordered the miso saba ($13.00) and it was fantastic, my friend order the amberjack neck ($17.00).

All the Japanese food is great here. My miso saba tasted so good, it just melted in my mouth, such an incredible flavour. The miso soup is the best I have ever had, containing a variety of ingredients (this time it even had broccoli bits in it).

Judging by the crowd, Tenhachi is still a hidden gem but there does seem to be more and more people here each time. This time we had some strange dude that thought I was committing espionage by taking pictures of the food. I wonder if he is some conspiracy theory guy. Big brother is watching you eat your fish and chips.

The atmosphere as I have mentioned before is a little un ordinary Tenhachi is located in the bottom of a bed and breakfast / hotel. Here is a picture to better describe what I am talking about. Note the bags of chips at the counter. There are lots of other weird things in the restaurant as well, like a mannequin of a sailor that greats you at the door.


Bottom line - the food here is great, not your typical Japanese food but really flavourful. I haven't ordered the rolls here because they are very pricey but I will have to try them.
If you really want to show your foodie friends an undiscovered place to eat, take them here.
