lunch at Hinoki Pantry on Smith St

| 1 Comment

Hinoki Pantry is a new Japanese food shop and sushi / sashimi bar on Smith St. There are so many intriguing things on the shelves and dozens of plates of food to be ordered from the sushi bar menu, which are made to order (some smaller plates have been pre-prepared for quick takeaway lunches).

This medium sushi / sashimi combination is $44 and the 8 inari is $4, which makes a good sized meal for 3 people. I’m no expert in Japanese food but this was some of the best I’ve had. I’ve always thought inari to be bland and boring, but the tofu skins here are delicate and sweet. This is a fantastic addition to Smith St.

  1. The quality of the sashimi and sushi is really good and quite reasonably priced!

    I’ve been going every few days since it opened!

    I recommend Shoji’s Platter (# 81) for $35.
