My friends around me are well aware of my sudden infatuation with all things Japanese, especially food.
A trip to Daiso always sees me going home with multiple bags of 'goodies' and I've been declaring openly how I crave for a good plate of omurice, hamburg meal or hayashi rice.
That's how crazy I am about Japanese stuff now. Well, I think I'm more excited about the food really.
I have every reason to! Been watching this 12 episode Japanese serial called Lunch no Joou (Lunch Queen) and ever since the moment I laid eyes on the food in the show, I've been salivating so bad that every thought of lunch leads me to omu rice.
Alas, I haven't found that amazing omurice place. But if you know of any, please do tell me! I've been hunting high and low. Most Japanese eateries here sell mostly dons and soba, and sushi etc.
Ohhh.. but one place has managed to satisfy one Japanese craving. It's a place that's familiar to most. Been hearing bout the restaurant from literally everyone I know.
Waraku is its name and I have to say that it didn't fail to impress me either.
Brought sis there on Thursday and really enjoyed it. Go ask my sister. She was pretty intrigued by the look on my face as I ate my meal.
She had the lunch set meal that included one Cha Soba and one Salmon Oyako-don:
It sure is filling and the soba was yummy - love the chewy texture...
What did I have?
Hahahaha.... the hamburg meal of course! Though I would have appreciated it if they have me some rice to go with the gravy but hey, I shan't complain because it was really really good!
Served with a generous amount of demi-glace sauce, the hamburg patty was really fresh and tender. Each mouthful was greeted with a satisfying smile. Oishii!
Throughout the entire meal, I was thinking of how good the sauce was and how it complemented the beef. Go watch Lunch Queen and you'll understand the root of my current obsession. hahaha..
Eat it with a soft runny yolk and you'll never want another processes beef patty again. Everything pales in comparison now.
Trust me on this, this hamburg is top notch. Do go try it before it's gone. It's on their limited edition Summer Special Menu.
What can I say. I'm simply speechless.
I've found THE amazing hamburg! now it's time to find that great omurice. Recommendations anyone??
