If you spent your childhood in Japan during the 70’s ~ 90’s, the classic food replicas in New Smile’s front window will bring back memories. Such replicas were once a familiar sight in restaurants, department stores and cafes. Even if you’re not Japanese, the nostalgic atmosphere of this delightful restaurant is hard to miss. Furnished with white walls and warm wooden furniture, New Smile was opened this March. However, the space is rich with history- the rebuild of a 40 year old traditional Japanese house. The owner wishes his customers to eat well , so each hearty dish is made to satisfy your stomach and you can ask for “okawari”, a free refill. Former training at a famous diner in Fukuoka shines through in the quality of the dishes. The menu brims with familiarity for Japanese – Scotch Egg, Tonkatsu (fried pork coated with bread crumbs), Nami-lunch with fried white fish, salad, rice and soup, Napolitan spaghetti topped with egg, or Rice Omelet. The delicious Garlic dressing and Tartare sauce are also homemade recipes. You can enjoy same menu day and night, so whether you visit alone or with a friend, you are sure to enjoy a hearty meal, full of nostalgia.
