I have eaten lunch and dinner at J Fuji many times over the years and was once again delighted at lunch today. I don’t know why I was so surprised to yet again enjoy great food and friendly service in this cozy hole in the wall size restaurant today - but I suppose it is because so many restaurants flag over time or lose their specialness. It’s great to be able to sit in a small, intimate restaurant and still be able to have private conversation in peace, while still getting kind and attentive service. And somehow today, the fact that it felt familiar but still charming really made my day - maybe because it is still a quality experience and it is reassuring that some good things really can last. Well, that and...the food was terrific. (How did I manage to forget how good it always is?) I had the miso soup which was rich with generous portions of both seaweed and tofu and the broth itself was tasty. The house salad had fresh, crisp iceberg lettuce and the ginger dressing was excellent - not too heavy and not watery either. But the main dish was the happiest surprise. The Ma La Seafood was served with fresh cauliflower, asparagus and red bell pepper all seasoned in a delicate but gently spicy Ma La sauce with ample portions of tender scallops and shrimp. I have a big appetite - and with the white rice (brown rice is available if you’d rather) served with this dish, I finished my meal and was satiated but didn’t have that disgusting overstuffed or MSG feeling that can haunt this kind of food. (By the way, the sushi here is excellent, but I was not in a sushi mood.) Whether you’re looking for a place to have a leisurely meal and catch up with an old friend or two (or three), grab a quick bite to eat, or order take-away - J Fuji delivers on all counts if you have a hankering for Chinese or Japanese cuisine.
