And this is how it looks! To me, it’s got a very modern and whimsical vibe. It’s homey and cozy in this place, despite being so well lit.
And you will see it everywhere in this restaurant! NOOOOO DOUBLE DIPPIIIIINGGGGG!!!!!! The thing is, in Japan, (presumably because rent is sooo expensive), it is not unusual to make strangers sit together in the same table to be efficient. In another practice of efficiency, instead of serving a small tub of sauce per person, they serve just 1 big tub of sauce per table. As such, in the situation where strangers are seated together with just 1 tub of sauce, no double dipping just has to be enforced.
Amusingly, these lanterns are inside. If I’m not mistaken, they’re supposed to be outside, because the lanterns are saying “Commerce Ongoing” or basically, that the store is open. Oh well, it’s cute anyways hahaha.
This one, of course, is the shrimp. Thanks to the tail so I know hahaha. And can I just say I dipped like my life depended on it? Since no double dipping is enforced, I bathed the kushikatsu in the sauce and spun the stick several times to be sure hahaha.
For the rice bowl, I chose Oyakodon because thus far, before this visit, I have never had good Oyakodon anywhere yet. The way that I understand it, Oyakodon should feature an egg that’s custardy and borderline runny. It’s not supposed to be like the scrambled egg or fried egg that is usually the custom in the Philippines. Thankfully, the egg on this one is custard-ey! And the portions are healthily filling.
