MeNami

MeNami prides itself as the first genuine traditional Udon House in Ontario. Udon is a type of thick wheat noodles found in Japanese cuisine. It can be served warmed or cold depending on the type of dish.DSC05829_Fotor_Fotor.jpgOpened only a few months ago, Menami has already created a lot of buzz. This place is pretty busy, hence expect to wait if you don’t have a reservation. The restaurant is located at Yonge and Finch.DSC05830_Fotor.jpg
J and I swung by around 5:30pm on a Saturday evening, put down our name and number and waited for about 40mins. They will contact you by phone when your table is ready.DSC05842_Fotor_Fotor.jpgDSC05844_Fotor_Fotor.jpg
We were blown away by the Beef Tataki ($12) appetizer and this was my favourite dish. The sauce was very tasty, full of flavour, and has a bit of a kick to it! It is citrus -y and sweet.DSC05864_Fotor.jpg
The Spicy Salmon Tartare ($9) was yummy as well and is served with crispy deep fried wonton skin. The salmon is chunky and fresh.DSC05861_Fotor_Fotor.jpgDSC05889_Fotor.jpg
Next was the Black Sesame Puree Udon with Beef ($15)! I rarely leave a restaurant without trying one of their speciality items. There were many Udon dishes to choose from on the menu but this one caught my eye. It was an interesting dish since the sauce is quite sweet and reminded me of the traditional Asian black sesame dessert. It was warm and we were quite content slurping up the noodles. The udon noodles were springy and not starchy. The only downside is that there wasn’t much beef.DSC05853_Fotor.jpg
Corn Kaki-age ($5) with a honey butter mayonnaise dip! I can see why a lot of people enjoyed this corn tempura dish. Personally, I’m not a big fan of fried food but I liked the sauce and I thought it went well with the corn kaki-age.DSC05893_Fotor.jpg
The bar area is nicely arranged and I liked the wood furniture and details, the cool lighting fixtures, and hip vibes.DSC05896_Fotor.jpg
MeNami is a great place to eat with friends or with a date. There’s a good selection on the menu whether you’re feeling for something unique, or just tapas and drinks. DSC05890_Fotor.jpg
