Kura Japanese Dining. The metaphorical teddy bear best friend. Something you can always rely on, to be there for cuddles for better or for worse.

Salmon sashimi begins the healing or joyous process, Gyu (cow) tongue marinaded in a salty soy sauce and sautéed spinach-don continues to warm things up. Feel the snuggles through the garlic and ginger seasoned deep fried karaage or the mirin sweetened sake and soy paste basted on the unagi. More than willing to impart the love is the gently sweet and salty katsu-don, choice of pork and chicken fried crumbed cutlet with egg topping on a foundation of rice. Something a bit fresher and cooler is the slightly vinegary Remen of a garlic ginger stir fried pork and spinach on cool noodles.

Food to replenish any soul in any state. Had Kura had big furry arms, it would wrap them around you and never let you go. Though seeing that ain’t going to happen, share the experience with other lives in a confined space which enforces an intimacy that by the end of your meal, you’ll be more than happy to hug it out after.
