Japanese Fusion – Japa Redheads Cafe

Very unique space and menu. Reasonably priced with specials and features each day. Fusion aside, Umami is the focus here – even the stir fry was complex between smoky flavours and included non-standard vegetables like lotus root as well.

I like that the restaurant offered lots of room for groups, very clean, comfortable seating and booths as well. They also have amazing drink specials – so…
