Tsukasa Japanese Restaurant - Bordentown, NJ

What’s there to say about a chilly Friday October night in New Jersey?  Well, with the Spirit Walk going on in Bordentown this weekend, we decided to take a stroll out that way, and the cold weather was calling for some good warm noodles, so Tsukasa was out spot!

Walked in and saw just 3 tables open, so we picked one furthest from the door since it was so chilly.  Sat down, and popped and poured a 2006 Kosta Browne Gary’s pinot noir.

I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but Tsukasa is a great little family run gem.  The father is always rolling the sushi while his wife is working in the kitchen, creating soups, tempura, teriyaki, etc.  Their son runs the front of house, taking care of drinks, taking orders, and running food to the tables.  They are such a great family, and they are living their dream, and I am sure that the residents of little Bordentown City find them to be a great asset.

We both started off with rolls tonight.  Zelda opted for the spicy salmon roll, and I went for the spicy tuna roll.  As always, these came out fast, and they were delicious.  They were nice and plump, and fresh and delicious.  Enough said.

We both ended up going for the soup tonight since it was a chilly evening!  Zelda went with the tempura udon, and I went with the tempura soba.  This is a nice Asian styled broth with noodles, the udon being a fat noodle, and the soba being a skinny noodle.  The tempura shrimp and vegetables are then served on the side, consisting of onion, broccoli, sweet potato, green beans, and potato.  There were 2 pieces of shrimp, and several pieces of vegetable, and as always, this is good.  Great comfort food on a chilly night, and just a joy.

As usual, another great meal at Tsukasa, and the family there is always so nice, and the prices are cheap!  We’ll be back again several times over the winter for sure to get our soup fix to stay warm!  Cheers!
