It is always a welcome sign to see nationals of the cuisine of the establishment you are dining in actually eating the food. I don't remember what used to be in this spot but I hope Tonchaya lasts longer. Scanning the menu for something healthy to eat after the recent excesses found us ordering the following:
8 kinds of Seafood, Chirashidon P395
Tonchya Special Okonomiyaki, P300
Sashimi Shake, P250
Now our Tonchaya experience was very positive on the whole. Food took a bit long to come which is odd considering you are supposed to get fresh raw fish. Again, the Okonomiyaki was phenomenal and did satisfy my craving for one of my favorite Japanese dishes. In case you are wondering I love Katsudon, Shrimp Tempura and Okonomiyaki.
The funny part came after we paid and stood up to leave. There was a hushed silence and no one even looked at us and then we unceremoniously left without a goodbye.
