En Brasserie

A giant Japanese restaurant in West Village (is it West Village?)

There are several En restaurants in Tokyo, Japan. And they came to NY a few years ago.
Since open, there have been serving descent Japanese foods, and it became a neighborhood gem.

A popular dish here is Tofu and Yuba.

What is Yuba?
During the boiling of soy milk, a film or skin composed primarily of a soy protein lipid complex forms on the liquid surface. The films are collected and dried into yellowish sheets known as tofu skin or soy milk skin. That is Yuba.

Anyway, En Brasserie also serves fresh Sashimi.
I tried Horse Mackerel and Needle Fish this time.

After Sashimi, they even fry their fish bone, and serve you as Fish Bone Fry Dish.

Please try Japanese "shochu" with their food. Shochu is Japanese vodka? made with Potato, Rice, Sesame, Barley, and others.
