Sunday afternoon: warm and breezy. Vadim & I took a table outside in JPAN's garden. Peaceful and intoxicating, we both chose a bento from their lunch specials. Eight dollars will bring you: amazing service, salad, miso soup, a roll, shumai, house noodles and entree. I chose the yakatori chicken skewers and Vadim decided on the tempura. Both were expertly prepared. Light, yet filling, the bentos were ideal for a Summer weekend lunch.
The shumai were particularly flavorful, the miso soup and salad were fairly standard. The rolls were delicious, but could have been wrapped a little tighter- mine kept falling apart. The tempura was beautifully done- not too greasy- and the vegetables quite flavorful.
