A comfy place to be well

The name intrigues, so we drop by B-well for lunch. There is lots of natural light and the decor is bright and cheery. One young woman is curled up in an armchair, sipping tea and reading a novel. It’s that kind of place.

The menu features noodles and rolls and a small selection of nigiri and sashimi. The $11.95 lunch special offers a comforting bowl of miso soup, garden salad, tea or coffee and a choice of two kinds of rolls. I have the California Roll and this day’s special, Crispy Spicy Tuna, which proves to be my favourite.

The Dragon Roll ($8.50) sounds tempting — two giant prawn tempura and green lettuce wrapped in avocado with soy sauce. The eight pieces arrive looking suitably dramatic, but the prawns don’t taste fresh.

My pal has a yummy bowl of Tempura Udon Noodles ($8.50) in a spicy broth with shrimp and vegetable tempura. It’s large and satisfying.

While the food could be improved, our server is charming and our visit leaves us feeling well.
