Kobe Japanese Restaurant in Holmdel

October 28, 2007

On Friday evening we decided to check out Kobe Japanese Restaurant in Holmdel.  It is in the Holmdel Commons Shopping Center.

Believe it or not, I was not in a sushi mood as I was not exactly ravenously hungry.  We did not order our usual sashimi platter for our second course.  Rather he tried the New Style Sashimi for his appetizer.  He said it was “interesting, not in a bad way, but I don’t know that I would order it again.”  It didn’t really look all that appetizing to me.  Just the various sashimi pieces on a plate of hot oil.  I think it might be the oil that threw me off.  He said the fish was “good”, though.  So that’s a plus I suppose.

He ordered a couple of special rolls (Ocean-5 Roll and something else I can’t remember) for his main course whereas I simply opted for the Unaju (Broiled eel over rice with tasty eel sauce).  It was quite good and hit the spot for me.

We tried an assortment of mochi ice cream for dessert.  I love mochi!

All in all, not a bad experience.  I’d like to go back for regular sashimi and special rolls.
