I visited Takumi twice in the same week, in the beginning of June, I heard that it had officially opened and I was really excited to try it. It’s been a while I had real good Japanese noodles so I took my coworker there. She’d never had anything like it so I had to introduce her to some of it. We got there early because we were catching a movie later, it is only a short distance from the movie theater.
As we made our way in we were excitedly greeted with a loud “Irasshaimase (いらっしゃいませ)” which of course had me instantly sold. It’s all you hear whenever you enter any shop or restaurant in Japan. it means “Welcome!/Come in!”
The second I noticed was the interior. It was nice, clean, very Japanese. A lot of wood aswell. I heard Japanese music playing and the staff was dressed in a black jeans and black/blue shirt. We were seated and asked if we would like a drink, we opted for (chinese) Ice tea.
After we made our pick, which was really difficult to be honest, we decided on a Spicy Tonkatsu and a less spicy variety of it and some Takoyaki.
though the staff told her it wouldn’t be as good as it was fresh. We got a nice bowl and lid for it aswell…. in which I had some trouble closing it for her but the most handsome staff member that I had seen helped me out. ……Of course I blushed furiously…..
The next week I took my mom and Nicolette/Kaori with me to eat there. I was craving it badly all week.
We got there when the weather was absolutely perfect and when we were shown a table we sat outside to enjoy the last bits of sun and the vibrant West Kruiskade.
We ordered a set of Kimchi and Gyoza. Both were near heavenly aswell and all three of us had to stop ourselves from ordering more of it.
I’m rather excited to fill out my card but I haven’t had the change to return yet.
