Konnichiwa used to be one of my favourite spot in Baldwin Village; this small, homey Japanese restaurant serves all sorts of traditional Japanese fare; you’ll find sushi, soupy noodle dishes, marinated grilled meat or seafood on rice, etc. Prices are a bit higher than the average Japanese restaurant though.
Sashimi Appetizer ($15.50). The menu states that you get about 10 pieces, but we definitely got more than 10. Fish was quite fresh and of good quality.
Barbecued Unagi ($20). It came with miso soup, rice and steamed vegetables.
Chirashi ($25) – sashimi and vegetables on seasoned rice. This is one of the most expensive chirashi I’ve had and frankly, not worth the price with the use of imitation crab. At $25, you shouldn’t use imitation crab. For $3 extra, the chirashi I had at Hana No Yuzu (although a much more higher-end Japanese restaurant…) had sea urchin in it.
Maple Tofu dessert. Soft tofu, maple syrup and green tea ice cream. Our green tea ice cream had freezer burn. 😐
I’d still go back to Konnichiwa, their ramen and udon soups are one of their best dishes on the menu, while other dishes are best avoided.
