Nanbantei serves yakitori, or Japanese food served grilled and on skewers. It was a fun food adventure for the two of us. Also, it helped that the food was really good. Here are our pictures, Pt. I and Pt. II :)
Spicy tuna maki
Assortment of toriniku (chicken meat), atsuage tofu (bean curd), and ika (squid).
PJ with our food. Bowls of udon have still not arrived.
Unagi sushi (eel sushi) and spicy tuna maki, fast becoming our favorite.
The place looks very good, and the service is pretty quick. The servers are also really polite and friendly. However, for us the best part about eating at Nanbantei is the appetizer served upon being seated. They have vegetable sticks (carrots, cucumbers, and radish) with this Japanese sauce that we haven't found anywhere else. It is delicious. The food, surprisingly, also goes well with beer :P However, the other than yakitori, the choices and the lack of variety won't make you think too much. Also, to really enjoy, make sure your wallet is, well, filled. LOL.
