Tokyo Cafe: Omurice
Even if we are on a very tight budget, we were able to spare some for a movie and a late lunch.
This year, we decided to dine in the relatively long-standing small Japanese restaurant in the bridgeway of Megamall: Tokyo Cafe.
I had previous encounters with omurice in other restaurants but it didn't make that much impression on me as much as their version of the dish did.
Sticky rice was made more stickier with the chicken ala pobre that they mixed in their omelette rice. It was so tasty that it was good by itself. The serving is for two to three people. The egg was cooked just the way I liked it - cooked midway to well-done (if there's such a thing).
Ambiance: 3 out of 5
I prefer to dine in a quiet place to enjoy the food and company. However, it is in the most crowded part of the mall and the restaurant is so wide open, you can hear the noise from outside. However, I love their white furniture against the white walls (and from what I remember, some apple greens). The seemingly clean place is totally appealing.
Taste: 3 out of 5
I haven't tried all of their dishes. The omurice gets the 5 out of 5 score. However, the food presentation in the photos in their menu (particularly the sandwiches) wasn't the actual thing you'd get. We also ordered the interesting-looking sandwich, but when it came to our table, it was poorly prepared. It was a far cry from the photo in the menu (which was the main reason why I ordered it).
Service: 5 out of 5
I didn't have to ask for anything. They provided all that we needed.
Cost: 3 out of 5
The price is affordable. However, if the other dishes was like the sandwich we got, then they are over-priced.
