If you’re looking for a place to grab lunch make sure you show up early around 12 noon or later after 2pm.
Its signature lunch set is the black pepper “beef steak” burger served in home made bun and thick potato wedges with some side salad.
Just to give you an idea how delicious it is, here’s a close up. You can literally bite into a colorful layer of crunchy lettuce, juicy tomato, meaty soy protein cutlet, melted cheese, and mushroom wrapped in soft bun.
Set meal comes with a soup starter that’s natural (meaning not your msg-laden kinda soup) and tasty. Note it’s not always carrot soup.
Typically, there are 3 set meals you can choose from. They will usually serve the beef burger and then a pasta and rice set. One time I had this delicious Japanese curry tonkatsu, which I requested to have spaghetti instead of rice.
Another time I had pasta bolognese served with a dash of broccoli, corn, and snow peas. It was satisfying and portion was just right.
And as they say, always save the best for last. I love to wrap up my lunch with its wide selection of yogi tea and reflect on my divine message for the day.
