Tomodachi, Broadway

Tomodachi means friend in Japanese, and so it seemed apt that Saffron and I lunch there the other week.

It helped that we both love all things Japanese. And it definitely helped that our lunch was speedy and most delicious.

Deborah had the chicken katsudon, a cavernous square-shaped melamine bowl in white, filled with rice and topped with eggy pieces of crumbed and deep-fried chicken fillet. To the side was a small dish of pickles. A bowl of miso provided salty refreshment.

I couldn't resist the tempura lunch box, a shiny lacqured obento box filled with a treasure trove of tasty mouthfuls. The tempura was light, crisp and fluffy like a good iced tempura batter should be. Hiding underneath the crunchy golden coats were slices of sweet potato, eggplant, a piece of fish, a calamari ring and a sweet and succulent prawn.

Salmon sashimi was fresh and firm, the tuna sushi was tasty, the potato noodles were a little oily but delicious nonetheless. And all this was padded with mouthfuls of rice and sips of cloudy miso.
