It suddenly rained that day. We arrived at Japantown to have a quick lunch before exploring the city. But it suddenly rained. It wasn’t a downpour but still, it would stop someone from enjoying the tour. Good thing this cafe just saved us from getting totally wet.
It was a small cafe with enough seats for its diners. Being there felt like I wasn’t in Los Angeles. It reminded me of those quaint little cafes in Japan. But will their dishes remind me of the land of the rising sun?
Unfortunately, their dishes were misses for me. The Chicken Teriyaki was pretty decent though it could’ve used more sauce. It was indicated that it was broiled. But it would’ve been good if it was grilled to have more of that smoky flavor. As for the Mix Tempura and Tendon Rice Bowl, both were pretty the same with their fried eats. The breading was just too thick for me. It wasn’t the light batter that one usually gets from tempura.
Their dessert fared better. It was pretty decent. I guess this is more of their famous offers here.
Since we weren’t able to tour the place, this place did save us. Some of the places there were closed like this famous okonomiyaki place. We were supposed to dine there. But I guess, this place was good enough. I would recommend to just have dessert here.
