Eventually, it was time for dinner. Colin had spotted a little Japanese restaurant near our church the past weekend and was dying to check it out. We piled in the car, grabbed some cash (no credit cards are accepted!), and headed downtown.
The restaurant- Yamaya
Walking through the door of this family-run place was like setting foot inside another country. The inside was cozy and decorated with Japanese knickknacks, posters, and photos. We were greeted by the matriarch, had a seat at the bar, and prepared to be impressed :)
The only menus were on the wall (in loosely-translated Japanese)
I opted for the mixed sashimi- a good choice!
We finished our dinners, thanked our hosts, and headed back home for a few rounds of cards before it was time to head to the airport and say our goodbyes. It had been a great week, and I'm already looking forward to his next visit :)
