What To Order at Shiso Tree Cafe

Cy takes after his mom – looks, organization, creativity, and his love for classic rock and guitars. Both of them have cool looking glasses too. Last week, she visited us and new baby D! Shiso Tree Cafe OurTorontoLife
With the frigid temps, we haven’t really gone out (plus, I was house bound by Chinese tradition – no going out for 30 days post baby’s birth). Jail time was over, and we decided to go out to eat in Japan Town’s Shiso Tree Cafe. We shared a bunch of dishes (family style of course), and here are the verdicts:

Wafu Smoked Salmon Salad Shiso Tree Cafe OurTorontoLife 2

Verdict: Order this, it’s like a fancy Japanese Caesar salad. They didn’t skimp on the smoked salmon!

Okonomiyaki Fries Shiso Tree Cafe OurTorontoLife $10

Verdict: Order this once to try. I liked the sauce, but the fries weren’t the best – they were fried for too long and hard.

Unagi Don Shiso Tree Cafe OurTorontoLife 2

Verdict: You must order this, it’s kinda life changing. It’s creamy, and the barbeque eel was meaty and flavourful.

Clam Spaghetti Shiso Tree Cafe OurTorontoLife 2

Verdict: You could pass on this one. It’s good but doesn’t compare to the Unagi Don (I took the leftover Unagi Don sauce and dumped it on this dish).

We were stuffed by lunch end, I mean look at those portion sizes – they were pretty big. After lunch, we went to Pacific Mall to look for cool, red glasses for Mom. You can never had enough pairs of cool glasses!
