Year in and year out, Inaho in Yarmouth Port remains on my Top 10 Cape Cod list. Inaho continues to give patrons plenty of reason to remain loyal, offering some of the most sophisticated and authentic Japanese cuisine east of Tokyo.
While fearless diners are handsomely rewarded with specials, the less adventurous revel in traditional tofu, teriyaki (the best I’ve had), bento box combinations, and miso soup. Then there is tempura, an exemplary metaphor for life: Wait too long to partake, and the fleeting, perfect moment passes by.
Meanwhile, over at the bar, intense concentration is focused on the Zen of sushi preparation. Save room for banana tempura or ginger ice cream. The only downside: you often have to wait since service can be slow.
