Apart from sunny beaches, there are many good Japanese restaurants, such as Yamasakura. Ten years ago, that was already my favourite choice, because there are value meal deals and the restaurant was always full.
Recently, my friends and I had meals in there too. That is around $12 for Eel Dinner set. This set includes a small eel with rice, ramen and miso soup. Although the eel rice and ramen are not very big, they are good enough to taste. That is delicious! Moreover, I felt full after having this meal. I think that is super value for money, $12 can fill me up!
