Ever since my work shift got changed, my eating habits have been odd. I don’t eat lunch at the supposed hour nor even eat lunch at all. Well, sometimes I do but it depends on the occasion. Either way, I would be super hungry come dinner time. After attending an event two weeks ago, this resto was the place of choice that filled up my hungry belly.
I liked how chill the whole place looked. It kind of mimics those casual restos in Japan where people would go after a busy day at work.
Their complimentary dried anchovies were really good! It didn’t had this burnt taste. I just kept on grabbing more (or maybe I was really hungry that time).
The dishes we had were a mix of misses and hits. For me, they didn’t hit it on their tempura. My friend and I found it to be bland. Even if you put on douses of the sauce (which isn’t really recommended), it’s pretty bland. The Zuteki, which are beef tenderloin cuts, was pretty good. The marinade was rich; however, the cuts were uneven. Some pieces were big while some are just right. My companions that time both got the Gyudon which I think liked. My choice, which was the Oyakodon, was okay.
My tummy was filled with both something good and not-so-good. Well, we never got to try their other bestselling dishes. So I’d be willing to try this one out again if time permits. But there are other restos out here too so that’s something to think about.
