Coco's is the first place I've ever had curry. I've never had the desire to eat curry but this place drew me in. Cocoichi is a casual restaurant like a diner. They have english on their menu and it's easy to order. Most of the staff speaks english. The curry spice guide is in the menu and the kids plate is very cute and very delicious! Even my picky son will eat at Coco's.
Favorite Dish: I like the tonkatsu (fried pork filet) with 400 grams of rice. They have side items that you can add in such as garlic bits (crunchy garlic), egg (boiled), ginger (free with every plate), and a host of other yummy items. The scale of curry spice is described for you. I have never eaten higher than a two. I know, I'm a wimp. My husband can eat a five. You can get no spice and it's still delicious...
Just like most chain restaurants in the states Za Watami is a typical Japanese Restaurant where you take off your shoes at the door. The staff usually does not speak English that well so you need to have a few key Japanese words to order and have a sucessful night. They do have pictures so you can just point and order. The food is amazing and the drink selection will meet just about anyones tastes.
Favorite Dish: Etamame ... probably spelled wrong but if you pronounce it like that you will be able to order. They are like snow peas and green beans mixed. You only eat the seeds inside the shell and go great with anything you eat. Also they make amazing Goyza here.
This was the BEST FOOD that I've ever eaten, hands down. I've eaten at some high end restaurants, and the only thing EVEN CLOSE TO comparable was Johnny's in Cleveland Ohio. The Belle Neige is very small inside but the ambience was cozy French with minimalist artwork and beautiful presentation. The food was gourmet and that is putting it lightly. The chef is Japanese but his grasp of French cuisine well surpasses authentic French food I've had. Presentation was flawless, the price was UNBELIEVABLY affordable!!! If you enjoy delicious French food then you MUST EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT!!!! The escargot was impeccable! It was melting in my mouth and I am here to tell you, I've never had escargot prepared like this! EXCELLENT!!! Hajoo ni oisshi!!!!!!! (VERY DELICIOUS!!!)
Favorite Dish: The seafood salad was absolutely glorious. Seafood served on a bed of fresh baby greens. We had seven courses. The first was the salad, which was amazing. The second course was escargot served in fresh pesto and olive oil with mushrooms served in a tiny cup with hard crust french bread. The third was duck liver whipped into an extremely light fluff and caramelized, then pumpkin soup with heavy cream. The fifth course was a small filet of sea bass on a bed of blanched cabbage and lobster sauce (AMAZING!). The sixth was a filet mignon in a swiss sauce with a potato cheese cup and a broccoli spear. The last and piece de resistance was a heavenly cheesecake with a white cake crust and a fresh raspberry sauce. There was also a fruit gelatin cup and a slice of fresh melon. EVERYTHING WAS FANTASTIC!!!!
Great food. Very Small and Busy. Seats about 15 people at a counter, see something that looks good in the picture, put in your money, press the button and out comes a ticket, give it to the cook.
Favorite Dish: Beef Bowl w/ rice
Lots of good sushi. The Best ones were at the train station at street level. Another was in the shopping mall top floor. The rotary shops with dish prices and the wall made it very easy to order. Just sit at the bar and pull different colored plates off the moving belt. The ones advertising 100 or 150 yen for all dishes made it quite resonable!
