Midori, Blackburn by Bureaucrat

On a quiet Sunday, the Lawyer, Boy Chick and I took a leisurely stroll around Blackburn village. In search of a late lunch, we were on the hunt for a cafe.  While none of the cafes that were open were enticing for us (and naturally, the enticing cafes were closed), we spotted Midori.  Located in a side street that's just a smidge away from the main shopping strip and just that little less visible, Midori is an unassuming Japanese eatery.  The premises is small, with only a few tables inside and on the pavement.  A family run affair, there was a steady stream of people coming in to pick up their takeaway orders - indeed, it appeared to be the only eatery in the area that was commanding such popularity among the locals.

Midori, Blackburn, seafood udon
My seafood tempura udon was nice and piping hot. I liked how it had lots of seaweed threading through the noodles.

Midori, Blackburn, unagi don
The Lawyer's unagi don was simple but good.  Lots of grilled eel on a bed of rice.

We liked it

While we both enjoyed our meals, we both thought we should have ordered some sushi.  Looking at the prices, the sushi seems a bit more pricey than most suburban sushi places (e.g., a handroll is around the $3.50 mark) though I'm guessing that it's quite nice given the number of people ordering it as their takeaway.
