A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMAG0185Shiki is a small Japanese restaurant located just off of Harvard St. in Coolidge Corner. It has probably been on my “to visit” list for 5 years….glad we finally made it! We arrived at a great time and we were seated right away – there was a bit of a wait as we came close to the tail end of our meal. Shiki offers authentic traditional cuisine – as we look around, we realize we may be the only table that is speaking English tonight.

IMAG0184I order the Inaniwa udon ($13) that comes with shrimp tempura on the side.

IMAG0181We also order some sushi that was fresh and quite tasty – rolls here go for anywhere from $4 to $13. While we order relatively tame/safe options, many of the other patrons are ordering the more traditional tapas style dishes that include things like: octopus, monkfish liver, broiled squid, kimchee and Japanese pickles. The service here is decent – they have two servers for the whole restaurant. As more tables are sat, they seem to get a bit bogged down. Shiki is open Tuesday – Sunday for lunch and dinner.
