The next stop on our Eat Street progressive eating tour takes us to Japan.  Izakaya Arigato is an intimate Japanese eatery that fills up quickly during our visit.  Calligraphy, wood cuts, tea pots abound and creating a lovely setting.

The Udon Tempura set was pretty reasonably priced, and presented beautifully.  The tempura batter was a tad too thick for my tastes and in particular, the sweet potato a little under cooked.  Udon noodle was fresh and strong, lovely broth which was more on the salty than sweet side.

The highlight for me was the Unagi Teppan which looked stunning as it glistened in the cast iron pan.  The eel had great texture and perfectly cooked.  I loved the ever-so-tasty sauce which was divine with rice.

The green tea soju was an unusual but very pleasant drink and kind of green tea shake.
