clare eats

hehhheheheh :) Shower curtains.You ARE SO RIGHT Reid LOL!

Mama BoK

Do you have a good recipe for Omu Rice..??


da Eggplant Gratin....kinda creative isn't it. How's the cheeze match up with the taste of the eggplant?


Yes! I've walk by countless times but never found the courage to stop it for fear of what kind of fusion food I may encounter - thank you for enlightening us! Can't wait to hear your opinion on the dishes.


mmm....omurice! it's one of those comfort foods that taste best when made by someone else if not by mom.
Hopefully it was just as good??

Easily Pleased

they DO look like shower curtains! I'm surprised you didn't have to sit on toilet bowls as chairs! (wait... i could totally see someone doing some weird theme restaurant...)


Hi Reid - Haven't heard of Omu Rice on a menu in years, maybe decades! The Eggplant Gratin - Nigiri looking thing, looke interesting, but very rich.


they do look a little bit like shower curtains, I can see why you were hesitant! But the food looks great, especially the eggplant and the crabmeat.. yum!


Hi Clare,

I keep thinking that everytime I pass by. I guess that's why I never wanted to go inside.

Hi Mama BoK,

I do have a recipe and I will e-mail it to you shortly! I promise.


The eggplant gratin was actually one of the better dishes here. The eggplant was creamy and the subtle sweetness of the tomato sauce went well with the cheese. Kind of reminded me of eggplant parmigiana.

Hi Kathy,

I felt the same way as you did. I'm glad I stopped. Everything was quite tasty and I will definitely go back.

Hi Lajja,

I LOVE omurice, though, I did find that there was too much ketchup on top. I think I need to make this at home soon.

Hi Easily Pleased,

Welcome to my blog!

I was actually alerted by one of my readers to a Japanese toilet restaurant. Here's a post someone did on their blog:

Hi Kirk,

It's actually quite hard to find omurice on menus here. I used to see them on Korean restaurant menus for a while, but not on Japanese ones. I love it, and I'm glad I found it here.

As for the eggplant gratin, it was probably the best dish here. It was way delicious and not as rich as it looks.

Hi Michele,

I'm glad I did finally have the courage to eat here. The eggplant gratin and the crabmeat croquettes were great!

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
