Fat Panda

So i haven't been eating out much lately because a) i'm trying to lose weight & b) i'm trying to save some money. Eating out is so stressful on the wallet sometimes, and bad for the waistline I've put on 5kg since the beginning of the year and 2 mths ago I've seriously started dieting & exercising to lose it.

So staying local means sticking to what i know, and like, which is Japanese at Fat Panda.

In the last couple of mths i've come back a handful of times and never fail to order these three items from the menu.

salmon sashimi


Takoyaki


Eel & cream cheese handrolls


From the menu i have also tried, vegetarian gyoza, agedashi tofu, deep fried soft shell crab, and various plates off the sushi train.

The sushi train is nothing special, only picked off the train from hunger while waiting for our food to come. The gyoza's are yummy crispy morsels, which at the visit i had my camera with me, they had sadly run out :(

I like coming here to get my japanese fix, when i'm too lazy to trek out to the city for dinner :D

Love the salmon sashimi and takoyaki but I find cream cheese and eel a bit too rich together.

I love the look of the eel and cream cheese rolls Betty! What are you talking about dieting - you are so slim you don't need to diet!

I understand how you feel about the eating out and the damage it does to the waistline! I'm trying to be good as well... haha trying!! It's good to hear that there are some decent Jap places in the west too.

With Christmas around the corner and work christmas lunches all over the place with different teams I feel my waistline will suffer greatly. Japanese always seems like a great lighter option for the in between =)

That salmon sashimi looks wonderful!
Goodluck with your diet - I admire your commitment as I simply cannot do it!

The eel and cream cheese sounds like a interesting combination.
