Food Trip Friday--One Coin Lunch

--- Buta no Shoga Yaki---

Ever since my kids started going to school, I have been spending a lot of ME time and that being alone at home now is somehow sad and kinda boring. Walking around the city and going into kisaten ( coffee shops and or cafe restaurants ) is now my fave kind of thing ( next to going to Mister Donuts ) while waiting for the time to pick them up to school. And what's so inviting to go to kisaten is that the meal costs for only one coin! 500 japanese yen with volume and good food, salad then you can have a cup of coffee afterwards. One coin for lunch, ain't that cheap?? ^_^
Photo above is called Buta no Shoga Yaki ( Pork in Ginger Sauce ) It was served with a cup of white rice, pickles on the side, a bed of thinly chopped veggies like cabbage, carrot, onion topped in with pork in ginger sauce and was sprinkled with sesame seeds. The combination of the pork in ginger sauce and the mayonaise is superb and that is how Japanese eat their shogayaki-- with the mayo! ^_^

That's good value for your money! Alam mo when I was in Tokyo, I bought a packed lunch buta no shoga yaki, and it's only for 300Yen. Naku, simula noon doon na ako bumibili ng lunch *lol*
