I saw an ad for Nikai Japanese Restaurant in Chopsticks advertising new vegetable noodles. I thought I’d try it since they make handmade noodles. I went for dinner with a friend of mine. It’s upstairs inside a lunch time café called Treehaus. Treehaus is a big space and it was a little confusing to figure out where Nikai was located. Once we found it, we were seated right away at bar top tables near the bar. I got the feeling this was more of a lunch place, as there was only one other group of customers.
They give you a hot towel for your hands here–the kind that you add water to and it expands. That was a nice touch and more like a Japanese restaurant.
