Tasty & Affordable Japanese Lunch Set at Genki Tei @ Den HaagWeekend is all about good food.
The initial food quest for this weekend was Hong Kong cuisine. To our dismay, the shop is closed for renovation, so we opt for a Japanese restaurant nearby instead.
It turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I may have just found my favorite Japanese restaurant in Den Haag. The food taste great, service is prompt, ambiance is cosy and the most important thing is the affordable price tag. A lunch set price range from €7.99 to €18.75. All sets come with an appetizer, main course and miso soup.
The Katsu Gozen set we ordered had seaweeds and fish cake as appetizer, fried pork cutlets in onion and mushroom egg omelet, rice and a bowl of tasty miso soup. Absorbing all the essence from the caramelized onion, shiitake mushroom and egg, the fried pork cutlet turned out to be juicy and flavorful. Not to mention, the portion is pretty huge too.
The Bento Fish Box was our next pick. This is a Must-Order set. Besides the standard seaweeds appetizer and miso soup, the bento comes with salmon in teriyaki sauce, assorted tempura (vegetable and seafood), fried fish cake, salad and rice. The salmon is surprisingly fresh and the tempura were fried to perfection. I especially adored the ebi tempura, it tasted superb with the tempura dipping sauce. This bento set cost just a mere €11.99.
Such a satisfying meal! Genki Tei Restaurant has just stake the claim as my top choice for affordable Japanese restaurant in The Hague.
