Tenzan-upper west side. Columbus between 73rd and 74th. June introed me to this place. Pictured here is the Crunchy Maki. Its three rolls. Spicey tuna, spicey salmon, and spicey crab. And, the tempura mixed in makes the "crunchy". I have pretty simple taste when it comes to Japanese food. My favorite being Salmon. And, I like crunchy. :) So, this is the perfect dish for me. Plus, they have fried ice cream! Nice! Its ice cream tempura! Those are the sure deals of a good dinner. But, I think they are pretty good in general. I haven't had anything I don't like there. But, do go a little earlier or you will wait for a seat. Go for an early dinner around 6:30.

Food: Overall yummy Japanese food
Recommended: Krunchy Maki and fried ice cream
Price: Average leaning towards the cheaper side for Japanese food.
Environment: Nice bamboo textures.
Service: Very nice.

Hi everyone, this line of posts will be about good grub. Mostly, in NYC, but not only. I was sitting at dinner with June (the other voice on this blog) one night and thought that it would be fun to create a blog for the food that we enjoy. We're both foodies and thought it would be fun and informative to give our takes on the places we like. My thought was that the critic's "hot places" are always packed out and it would be nice to tell other's about the little hole in the wall places we happen upon. I, for one, can't trust a list of "good food" places that doesn't include actual Chinatown restuarants in their list of best Chinese food eats. Sooo, here is goes..... I hope it helps some of you discover your own favorites. Enjoy!!
