Godzillas is in town_ soon to become Ima Dake

I was just walking by this new restaurant "Godzillas" located at 4006, rue Ste-Catherine O. corner Atwater. I later learned that the place will soon be re-named "IMA DAKE", since Sony owns the right to that giant green creature's name!!! I decided to give it a try and was glad I did. I was quickly greeted by a young friendly staff made up of Japanese and Chinese waitress/cooks.

I had the Ebi tempura Ramen in a miso broth. The noodles were perfect, tender yet still carrying the rich flavor of the broth. The latter was obviously made with pork bones as it should be, slow cooked to a rich milky brew. I took the miso base, but one could also chose the soya base. It was served with a whole pickled (hard boiled) egg sliced in two, some chinese greens (yu choy) and grilled oyster mushrooms. On the side, four shrimps tempura also came with my order. They were fried in a light batter; very crispy and non-greasy at all.

I was in a hurry, so was unable to stay longer to sample anything else.
I will go back and bring my camera so I could post some photos for everyone...

some other features on the menu:

Okonomiyake (like a seafood pancake)
Tako Yake (Octopus fried in a batter in a ball shape)
Yaki Tori (Chicken grilled on skewer)
Gindara Saikyo Yaki (grilled black cod with miso)
Tori no Karaage (Japnese style fried chichen)
and more...

also, different choices of Ramen:
with grilled beef
char sui (roasted pork)
tempura
black cod
and more

Check it out guy...

Back Soon

Gotta go now
