The one thing about being a food blogger is that people expect you to know where to eat, and what is good, so my friend often come to me for suggestion. The truth is I haven't tried that many restaurants, and when I do suggest a place, it's only because it suit my taste palate, so all I am saying is to take my suggestion with a grain of salt. Anyway, when my friends came to me for a suggestion for our Friday night dinner, I immediately picked Osamu, because I been wanting to try, and no one objected.
Actually, it looked a little run down, since their sign wasn't all that attractive and it was literally next to a auto shop. However it was a completely different story once you step in. There was soothing jazz music playing in the back ground. The place was spacious, and our booth was intimate and comfortable. (sorry about the picture quality, picture taken with iphone).
Last but not least, I had to order my favourite chopped scallop roll, oops I mean Scallop Chop roll ($5.95) as Osamu would call it. The scallop was springy instead of mushi, meaning it's fresh. The rice was a little disappointing, it wasn't properly compacted, so it was falling apart when I dipped in soy sauce.
Service here was great, they greet you with a smile and often came by to fill our tea. They even brought us hot wet napkin to clean our hand before the meal. Food was solid as well, so if anything I have to complain about would be the price, but as everyone knows 'you get what you pay for', and Osamu certainly delivered.
