Back to hanging out at Mcmahon on wednesdays inbetween classes so it’s time to update this place!
I really miss eating at Nishino. In winter quarter everything was so cold and grey it was too depressing to go out and eat at nice places. Plus the sunlight ended so early eating dinner someplace nice didn’t yield good pictures anyway. So here is what we had at Nishino a while back:
I liked my soft shell crab. I think the cooked food at Nishino is more outstanding than the raw. They have quite a lot of cooked items one in very inventive ways, so much so that it is sometimes compared to Nobu. They do serve ceviche on occasion.
What I come here for – Crab dynamite. Have always ordered this since my first time here; it reminds me so much of the dynamite at Kyushu – i.e. very American-Japanese. The dungeness crab and mushroom slices are topped with an amazing cream cheese spicy mentaiko sauce and baked. There’s also some dashi broth at the bottom. I could finish plates of this by myself.
This is definitely one of my favourite places on Capitol Hill/Madison Park, and the complex it is in gives off a very beach resort holiday feel. Perfect for a meal after walking about the botanical gardens or the Japanese garden.
