The salmon and chicken dons were tenderly cooked and the nori rolls were plump with a larger grained rice than I'm used to seeing at sushi shops. You're also given the option to choose from white or brown rice.
With great choices from a small kitchen, you can get a good variety of Donbury (rice bowl dish) ranging from tofu, vegetarian to all types of meat, seafood and traditional Japanese curry.
Hand rolls come in a choice of brown or white rice with up to 15 varieties, though I suspect not all 15 are available at the same time on the same day, and that Manabu creates different ones each day. This just adds to the charm of this little Japanese corner. You never always know what's going to be available.
The Bento boxes (Japanese lunch box) also come in a variety of meats and seafood. My nori rolls on the plate looks a bit sparse because I had started eating it before I decided I was going to write about them. It was the taste, the feel of a cosy nook and the friendly fast service that propelled me into action.
Spicy salmon, crispy nico, salmon (no mayo) and sesame prawns are definitely choices I at least have not been offered before. This just adds to the feel of fresh tastes of handmade morsels freshly made on the spot. I'll definitely be going back to try the rest of the menu. I've heard that they even use black rice. Can't wait!
