Warm spring days have brought out the desire for salad, fish and chips. Although, maybe fish fingers are a bit of a stretch. I’ll be cooking Carrot chips more often in the future. Iconic Bavarian fundamentals include Bratkartoffeln, Kaiser-Semmel and cucumber salad, although this modern adaptation was with pear, rocket and parmesan.
These pictures are from two dinners I had at a fusion Japanese-Balinese bar and restaurant in Ginza called LIME. The restaurant is located upstairs (2F) in the Ginza Corridor arcade under the metropolitan expressway and Shinkansen. A map and review is available from Metro.
LIME has floor to ceiling fish-tanks running the length of the restaurant and provides most of the restaurants moody lighting. The tanks are chock full of tropical fish, including a beautiful zebra striped moray eel, which hides up near the cashiers.
The food was good. Not fantastic and not expensive, it was good value, interesting fusion food. If you want Japanese food, go somewhere else. If you want pure Indonesia food, go somewhere else. If you want something that sounds familiar but is a little different – same same but different – then give this place a try.
